What Cult Classic did you love before it became a Cult Classic.

RE: What Cult Classic did you love before it became a Cult Classic.
Yep, I have it on DVD. And it is that fucking weird (with such things as male frontal nudity of a child [non-sexualised, thank Jah]; a rape scene that Jodo, in edgier days, claimed was unsimulated [though, watching the scene in question, there's nothing to actually simulate]; and lots more disemboweled animal carcasses where that lamb came from, including 300 dead rabbits.) And I'd highly recommend watching it three times, the first time normally, second time with the commentary going where Jodo actually explains what the fuck is going on, and third after you find that all the crazy shit that baffled you the first time not only actually has a point, but is an allegory for something in Buddhism or the more esoteric branches of Christianity.

That said, Pink Floyd never worked with Jodo on anything that actually got released (though they did apparently agree to work with him on Dune, which never got off the ground), so none of their music appears. Indeed, "One of these Days" was made after El Topo was released. The actual music is more in line with what you'd expect from a Spaghetti western, at least the ones that Morricone didn't score.

I cant say it was a cult classic before I loved it. But the 1970s "Trilogy Of Terror" scared the shit out of me.

The Lawnmower Man -- if you watch it, be sure to get the Director's Cut.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

No. Never heard of it. 

A lot of drugs going around in the 70s. Maybe that's why you thought this "Star Wars" movie would be some kind of enduring classic.

I can't say I was the first to see it (I'm not that old), but I remember being scared and impressed by the original 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
