Cult Classics?

June 26, 2010

My review stash for the Star-Ledger includes two books devoted to cult classics. 500 Cult Classic Books, and 500 Cult Classic films.

As I prepare to dig in, I’m wondering:

  • What makes a cult classic?
  • Are there any books or movies in there that I already know and love? My tastes skew towards the not-scary, and my sense of “cult classic” is that it’s often a synonym for “freaky and disturbing.”
  • How much overlap is there going to be between the two lists? I’m betting that A Clockwork Orange makes both lists, for example.

Any guesses as to what books and movies would make the list?
