Films in Cult

From the mind-altering and unclassifiable to fantasy, sci-fi and horror.

Ever find yourself drawn to the dark side? Well, you’ll be in good company with the outcasts and reprobates taking centre stage in this year’s Cult crop. Get to know a budding sociopath in the form of Craig William Macneill’s The Boy, or even spend the night at the morgue courtesy of The Corpse of Anna Fritz. Elsewhere, you might encounter homicidal punk rockers (Green Room), rampaging talking turtles (Love and Peace), maniacal mannequins (Ghost Theatre), and of course that ultimate dark side ambassador himself, Darth Vader (Elstree 1976). Join our cult, if you dare.
