14 cult movies: the best Netflix movies to stream instantly

If, like me, you already have a Netflix account and have realized years ago that Amazon Prime was your doorway to savvy shopping heaven, then this mix of 14 classic and newly minted cult movies can be showing on your computer screen or iPhone within a matter of clicks.


1. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)


Watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show on NetflixThe Rocky Horror Picture Show
IMDB Summary: A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Quick Take: A cult classic and official inductee into my own cult movie hall of fame. Behold the hotness that is a 20-something Susan Sarandon. If your are in Harvard Square on a Saturday night, make sure to stop by the Loews Harvard Square theater number four for their weekly midnight showing. Don't forget to bring some toast.

Fave Quote:"Do you think I made a mistake splitting his brain between the two of them?"

You can stream The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Netflix.

No longer free. Stream The Usual Suspects instead.


2. The Big Lebowski (1998)


Watch The Big LebowskiThe Big Lebowski
IMDB Summary: "The Dude" Lebowski is mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.

Quick Take: One of my personal favorites. A borderline "cult" movie given it's popularity, but how can you leave The Duder off any list?

Fave Quote: "My, my wife, Bunny? Do you see a wedding ring on my finger? Does this place look like I'm fucking married? The toilet seat's up, man!"

You can stream The Big Lebowski on Netflix.

No longer free. Stream Swingers instead.


3. Eraserhead (1976)


Watch Eraserhead on NetflixEraserhead
IMDB Summary: Henry Spencer tries to survive his industrial environment, his angry girlfriend, and the unbearable screams of his newly born mutant child.

Quick Take: Many writers have tried to sum up the story of Eraserhead, but few have been able to accurately convey what exactly is happening. It is no secret that Eraserhead is a film that defies an easy synopsis. You don't watch the film per se, but rather experience it. However, one of the best attempts to describe it comes from the director himself who once summarized the film as "a dream of dark and troubling things." -rheaven

Fave Quote: "So I just, uh... I just cut them up like regular chickens?"

You can stream Eraserhead on Netflix.

No longer free. Stream Paranormal Activity instead.


4. Slap Shot (1977)


Watch Slap Shot on NetflixSlap Shot
IMDB Summary: A failing ice hockey team finds success using constant fighting and violence during games.

Quick Take: A mediocre gang of chumps become championship maulers and the results are spectacular. The addition of the (now infamous) Hanson brothers, a bunch of mad, spec-wearing weirdos who love nothing better than wanton destruction adds to the cocktail of on-ice destruction. Fists fly, blood flows, profanities are fired all over the place. All in all it is extremely entertaining. -jimmy-chopsocky

Fave Quote: "He calls his hockey stick the 'Big Tomahawk,' and he usually refers to the opposing players as 'the little scalps'."

You can stream Slap Shot on Netflix.


5. Oldboy (2003)


Watch Oldboy on NetflixOldboy
IMDB Summary: After being kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years, Oh Dae-Su is released, only to find that he must find his captor in 5 days.

Quick Take: Oldboy takes a hammer and "batters" its equivalents, leaving them as pulped as a chewed up squid. Park Chan Wook skillfully creates a compelling plot that will have you guessing through the entire film, up until the final shocking revelation. Everything about this film is done in style and panache and creates a memorable experience, and has many memorable scenes. -ryuakamrvengeance

Fave Quote: "Revenge is good for your health, but pain will find you again."

You can stream Oldboy on Netflix or Amazon.


6. Let The Right One In (2008)


Watch Let The Right One In on NetflixLet The Right One In
IMDB Summary: Oscar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl who turns out to be a vampire.

Quick Take: I am not particularly fond of the vampire genre, but this movie is so much more. It is artistic, poetic, and in many ways a very profound movie exploring the nature of good and evil. It does so through the world of a child where both pure evil and pure goodness are somewhat discernible, and it achieves an astounding array of contrasts that allow us to see that good and evil can coexist side by side. -crmang

Fave Quote: "I'm twelve. But I've been twelve for a long time."

You can stream Let The Right One In on Netflix or Amazon.


7. Death to Smoochy (2002)


Watch Death To Smoochy on NetflixDeath To Smoochy
IMDB Summary: When he is fired for taking payola, the host for a children's television show plots revenge against his replacement, a rhino named Smoochy.

Quick Take: I've never seen a Danny De Vito film I didn't like, and Smoochy is no exception. Original and creative at every turn, with great performances from Edward Norton, Robin Williams, Catherine Keener, and everyone else in the cast. I smiled and/or laughed through the whole film. What more can you ask from a bent and twisted comedy, I ask you? -Rogue-32

Fave Quote: "Bastard Son of Barney! Die! Die, stuffed ball of fluff! Illegitimate Teletubbie! Die, you Muppet from hell! Die, you foam motherfucker!"

You can stream Death to Smoochy on Netflix.

No longer free. Stream Stripes instead.


8. The Evil Dead (1981)


Watch The Evil Dead on NetflixThe Evil Dead
IMDB Summary: Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.

Quick Take: This is not your typical "zombie" film, let alone your garden variety horror movie as well. The Evil Dead is one of those black comedies / horror movies that overwhelms the audience to either be scared out of their wits or won over by the movie's story and over the top characters. The Evil Dead is what most, if not all horror movies should be, very real and powerful. -caspian1978

Fave Quote: "I don't know what I would have done if I had remained on those hot coals, burning my pretty flesh."

You can stream The Evil Dead on Netflix.


9. Troll 2 (1990)


Watch Troll 2 on NetflixTroll 2
IMDB Summary: A family vacationing in a small town discovers the entire town is inhabited by trolls goblins (FTFY), who plan to eat them.

Quick Take: My sister made me watch this. She insisted it was a contagion, a disease she was compelled to spread. After seeing it, I truly understand, relate, and recommend. It's awful! But a transcendent awfulness...you want to pass it around like milk that might be spoiled, but everyone needs to test it anyway. I've never laughed so much at something that isn't even trying to be remotely comedic; it's a travesty. -fox_tabatha

Fave Quote: "Nilbog! It's goblin spelled backwards! This is their kingdom!"

You can stream Troll 2 on Netflix.


10. World's Greatest Dad (2009)


Watch World's Greatest Dad on NetflixWorld's Greatest Dad
IMDB Summary: A comedy about a man who learns that the things you want most may not be the things that make you happy, and that being lonely is not necessarily the same as being alone.

Quick Take: A dark, smart comedy in the spirit of Rushmore. Very good cast; great soundtrack. He uses very real issues to simply tell a story about the relationship between an ungrateful punk kid and a painfully weak father. World's Greatest Dad is a comedy for adults: insightful, original, uncomfortable at times...hilarious. Robin Williams manages to be miserable, mean, touching, and funny without any conflict at all, an inspired break from his traditional roles. -jimtabery

Fave Quote: "You guys didn't like Kyle. That's okay. I didn't either. I loved him. He was my son. But he was also a douchebag."

You can stream World's Greatest Dad on Netflix or Amazon.


11. The Iron Giant (1999)


Watch The Iron Giant on NetflixThe Iron Giant
IMDB Summary: A boy makes friends with an innocent alien giant robot that a paranoid government agent wants to destroy.

Quick Take: All I can say is, to heck with the box office gross. Despite Warner's appearant desire to pretend the film never existed, the word is getting around about what a magical film this is, and I have no doubt it will join 'It's a Wonderful Life' as a film which bombed in theatres but became a classic over the years. See it now, so you can say you discovered it before everyone else did. -dpenny

Fave Quote: "I am not a gun."

You can stream The Iron Giant on Netflix.


12. Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)


Watch Killer Klowns From Outer Space on NetflixKiller Klowns From Outer Space
IMDB Summary: Aliens who look like clowns come from outer space and terrorize a small town.

Quick Take: If you can't tell what Killer Klowns From Outer Space is about by the title, then this movie isn't for you. Not particularly scary, and not very gruesome, but hugely enjoyable. I've always been a little unsettled by clowns ("It" really did them in for me), and Killer Klowns should seal the deal. -TobyS

Fave Quote: "Killer clowns, from outer space. Holy shit!"

You can stream Killer Klowns from Outer Space on Netflix.


13. Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)


Watch Repo! The Genetic OperaRepo! The Genetic Opera
IMDB Summary: A worldwide epidemic encourages a biotech company to launch an organ-financing program similar in nature to a standard car loan. The repossession clause is a killer, however.

Quick Take: There is so much whimsy in this film that it almost becomes an absurdist fairytale. It skips and jumps from one homage to the next, cribbing notes from Rocky Horror in one scene before moving on to Rigoletto in the next. It cuts together the pieces of our collective pop culture consciousness the same way that the antagonists cut together new forms for their bodies. And it's wickedly funny too. -straightovideo

Fave Quote: "I'm the monster. I'm the villain. What perfection. What precision! Keen incisions, I deliver. Unscathed organs, I deliver."

You can stream Repo! The Genetic Opera on Netflix.


14. SLC Punk (1998)


Watch SLC Punk on NetflixSLC Punk
IMDB Summary: In the early 1980's Stevo and Heroin Bob are the only two dedicated punks in conservative Salt Lake City.

Quick Take: If you have ever wanted to just tell the world to F*** off, then this is a movie you should see. Granted, it's not for everyone, there are those who may not be able to look past the language and violence, but that's what being punk is all about. -Graffin

Fave Quote: “If the guy I was then met the guy I am now he'd beat the shit out of me. Those are the facts..”

You can stream SLC Punk on Netflix.
