Setting aside “good taste” for better flavor, the cult film gains its name from the cult-like following it can inspire. Ritualistic midnight screenings are historically crucial ingredients for a film cult to develop. Cohering around particular directors, actors, genres and subcultures, the cult film manages to entertain via nostalgia long after the “use by” date has passed.
