Cool Cult Classics for Hot Summer Nights

Cult classics: the good, the so-bad-they're-good, and the ugly-but-still-pretty-good. They are the films that inspire a dedicated following, line-quoting, group viewings and many a Halloween costume. They may not have done that well at the box office, but they're survived the ages with their special cult status.
