Here, picked by a variety of contributors and edited all together by Steven Jay Schneider, are 101 'cult movies' from across the world spanning from 1928's surrealistic film 'Un Chien Andalou', to the 2013 UK flick 'Under the Skin'. Every film is arranged in sections by decade, and a wide, balanced variety of genres are included.
A lot of these movies were already familiar to me including British classics like 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show', 'Withnail and I', and Danny Boyle's 'Shallow Grave', but many of them are very obscure, which only adds to the fun of discovering new pictures to watch. Each one is presented in the book with it's original poster artwork, and there is the basic information regarding director, producer, screenplay, cinematography, music, and main cast, before a well-written short study, which do contain a lot of spoilers.
If you wish to expand your movie knowledge, and find some new favourites, '101 Cult Movies: You Must See Before You Die' is a very useful, entertaining piece of work, which makes for an ideal present.
A lot of the movies are quite obscure, but that's part of the fun
