Fight Club,

Evil dead
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.
Death by starvation is a terrible thing, Goodsir, continued Stanley.
And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

Robinhood: men in tights, a cult film?

How about:
-Repo Man
-Rocky Horror Picture Show
-Evil Dead II (Actually, Evil Dead II is better than the original and the one most people are talking about when they speak of Evil Dead.)
-This is Spinal Tap
-The Warriors
-Dazed and Confused
-Barfly
-The Toxic Avenger
-Say Anything

Growing up a teen in the 80s, Cult films were kind of the thing.

I suppose it depends how you define "cult classic". Some choices-

Nighthawks (Stallone film, pretty good)
F.I.S.T (another Stallone film, very good)
Cobra (80s Stallone action film, very bad but with a style that would fit what others have mentioned)
Night of the Living Dead (probably one of the original "cult classics" although its pretty famous these days)
Omega Man (this definitely fits the bill no matter what your definition of cult classic Charlton Heston stars)

I'd certainly throw in movies like Blade Runner that weren't initially commercially successful, but some of those movies grew such large fanbases that I don't know how I could call them "cult films" and mention them with some of the other movies being mentioned here.

I'll go older school and also mention the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers and War of the Worlds. Also throw in the 7k budget sci-fi movie Primer.

Dawn of the dead...............

and even better Shaun of the dead.
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

Big fan of kung fu movies too Paul. I'd have to add the Prodigal Son to that list but I'll stop at that or I'll be here for a while.

Dead Alive! or as I know it Braindead is a classic but I still think the earlier Bad Taste trumps ii in both quality and cult status.
