Cult movies for beginners

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.

  1. The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (1966)
    Simply stunning, captures what it was like in the real wild west. Fantastic performance by Eli Wallach.
  2. Nightbreed (1990)
    Clive Barkers massively underrated 1990 Sci-Fi hit. Great special effects and David Cronenberg playing a great bad guy.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (1988)
    Cheesy 80’s flick Directed by the Chido brothers and has a huge cult following. Great Klown costumes!
