In today’s Edinburgh Evening News I interview Stewart Dawson, owner of DVD shop Cult Fiction on Newington Road.
Here Stewart lists five “must-have” cult DVD’s for anyone looking to build up their collection.
- The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (1966)
Simply stunning, captures what it was like in the real wild west. Fantastic performance by Eli Wallach.
- Nightbreed (1990)
Clive Barkers massively underrated 1990 Sci-Fi hit. Great special effects and David Cronenberg playing a great bad guy.
- Fortress (1986)
Not Christopher Lambert’s 1993 version, but an Australian drama where a rural school class gets kidnapped. Surprisingly hard hitting for a PG.
- The Warriors (1979)
Proper cult film and shot beautifully in some of New York’s old rundown streets, most of which have been fully regenerated.
- Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)
Cheesy 80’s flick Directed by the Chido brothers and has a huge cult following. Great Klown costumes!
