10 80s Movies That Flopped at the Box Office, but Are Cult Classics Now
"Many films that are cherished today were not necessarily loved when they were released in the theater. They either slowly gained momentum or most people did not care or did not know about them. Movies like the audience participation film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show became well-loved because of the buzz around the members of the audience re-enacting scenes of the movie. Or David Lynch's Eraserhead, which acquired its following and gained its "classic" status from midnight movie showings. These are the top 80s movies that flopped at the box office, but are now cult classics."
