Master Movie List

The Master Kultesque Movie List
Jfesser did something similar a while ago, http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=2598.
Add your entries, but don't start discussing the individual movies here, please - start new threads or join in on old ones :) Attempts will be made to keep the list updated with links to discussions on each film. I'll split up the thread if it get's off-topic.
    recommended = movie has been discussed and/or suggested by many people



  • Dark City
    Lictors on atkins everywhere!
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051090.gif

  • Donnie Darko
    Donnie sees through time & space and is probably an Unwilling Medium
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051207.gif

  • Akira
    Tetsuo is taken on a fast path to awakening, after crashing into a kid with superhuman powers. The music video for "Stronger" by Kanye West was based on this too!
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051057.gif

  • The Matrix recommended
    The Illusion has never been better presented. A must-see for any Kult fan.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051186.gif

  • Event Horizon recommended
    Portals to Purgatories (sci-fi) / maybe a nepharite's chokehold on a crew.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051740.gif

  • Twin Peaks recommended
    Art of dreaming and whatnot
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051165.gif

  • Lost Highway recommended
    This really challenges reality on a personal level
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051231.gif

  • Cube
    Look up The Cube in the 1st edition of the rules, it may inspire. Also interesting from a group-perspective.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209051068.gif

  • Minority Report
    Personal level conflict of reality, finding himself guilty of crimes he is to commit in the future.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053355.gif

  • Vanilla Sky
    Dude finds his life all twisted up after accident
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053673.gif

  • The Butterfly Effect
    This feels like a cheap entry in the list, but it deals with time manipulation in a *somewhat* kultesque way. Time manipulations
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053024.gif

  • The Jacket
    Guy at mental asylum travels into the future to save himself and people around him
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053645.gif

  • Fight Club
    Rule #1 is: Do not talk about Fight Club unless you want to spoil the movie. A great movie on the whole, and also inspirational for Kult.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053258.gif

  • Silent Hill
    Manifestation of some hell.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053587.gif

  • Vana Espuma
    Nobody knows what the fuck this is, but it keeps turning up as 'relevant' on nearly all the kultesque movies.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053659.gif

  • 28 days later
    Not to be confused with it's sequel. Inspirational mostly for its scenography, in my opinion. Zombie-flic.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209052989.gif

  • The Ninth Gate
    Johnny Depp goes cult investigator as he starts looking for "The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows," a book said to be key to to conjuring Satan himself. Reminds somewhat of Angel Heart.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053528.gif

  • Mothman Prophecies
    John Klein's wife smacks into a winged creature (seraphim?) and later dies in the hospital. John starts trying to figure out what the creature is.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053465.gif

  • The Caveman's Valentine
    A homeless man suffers from hallucinations, one of them being 'Styvesant'. Styvesant=Lictor, or something like that?.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053233.gif

  • Identity
    Not easy to explain too much of this without spoiling the movie. Pretty predictable, but interesting nonetheless.
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209053303.gif

  • Yiu sau dou si / The Wicked City 1992
    This city is ruled by lictors, the illusion is very weak - the version below is better, but animated.

  • Y˘jű toshi / The Wicked City 1988
    The original, animated version of the movie above. This city is ruled by lictors, the illusion is very weak
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209056120.gif

  • Unknown
    well, actually - this just has some group dynamic which is typical for a Kult session, IMO
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209050475.gif

  • The Descent
    An all-girl group on a caving expedition runs into something that can only be Gaian creatures, I'm sure of it
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209050508.gif

  • Unbreakable
    When a character evolves Powers, this is what might happen
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209049973.gif

    Anyone want to put up Curse on their character sheet after this? Plus, SMG is NICE :D
    http://www.kult-rpg.com/forum/uploads/torb/torb_1209049930.gif

  • Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi / Spritited Away

I know that Hostel is not something really kultesque but can be inspirational concerning the human suffering. So I would recommend Hostel and Hostel 2.

Very nice list, although it lacks the most important links - to the numerous threads existing here, on TLC. I can fetch what I can find, and put it in a separate post, or edit yours, if you don't mind. Besides, I can already see that there are some movies missing from those that were discussed here.

Anyway, this post is a definite candidate to be glued to the top of Kultesque subforum :)

[edit] - well, look at this; It's pinned already - these are the cons of using RSS feeds ;)

  • Pan's Labyrinth, The Devil's Backbone, Cronos
    Guillermo del Toro's highly regarded Spanish horror trifecta. Fantastic inspiration for dreamworlds, purgatories and CotN respectively.

  • Men Behind The Sun series
    Gore porn meets propaganda film in these infamous Chinese war dramas, dealing with various historical atrocities such as Squadron 731 and the Nanking Massacre (Pt. IV) in stark pseudo-documentary tone. Not for the squeamish.

  • Tears of Kali (TLC thread)
    German indie flick presenting a tryptych of psychospiritual horror. Jungian theory and cod Hindu theology used to gory effect.

  • The Toolbox Murders (2003)
    LA apartment building is haunted by a handy slasher. Some nice occult elements.

  • The Brood, Rabid, Shivers
    Cronenberg's early 'body horror' works, each dealing with themes of mental illness manifesting in flesh.

  • Le Locataire/ The Tenant
    Roman Polanski's early masterpiece of madness: the study of a lonely man's decent into schizophrenia, or of his real victimisation by a conspiracy of murderous neighbours?

  • Split Second
    Rutger Hauer vs a distinctly Razide-esque beastie prowling the streets of dystopian London.

  • The Guardian
    Or: Attack of the Infanticidal Tree-Beast Au Pair From Gaia. Effective horror from William Friedkin of Exorcist fame.

  • Braindead / Paranoia
    Overlooked psychothriller about a neurologist's trip down the rabbit hole of his own subconscious. Incident at Owl Creek Bridge meets Lost Highway.

  • Paperhouse
    Bernard Rose's pre-Candyman fantasy horror about a young girl's delirious flight into a world of make-believe. Great dreamworld material.

  • Creep
    Zeloth-y monstrosity stalks the London Underground. Some good fodder for a Labyrinth-crawl, and very similar to...

  • Raw Meat / Death Line
    ...which has Donald Pleasance vs some chthonian cannibal clansmen. A real lost classic offering some good investigative elements.

  • IrrÚversible
    Brutal and challenging revenge drama makes Hostel and Saw look like Teletubbies.

  • The Boneyard
    Crazy low-budget horror-comedy splatterfest in the Evil Dead mould. The child zombies are a little too convincing to be anywhere near funny.

  • Pin
    Creepy psychodrama about a young man's fixation with an anatomically-correct medical dummy. Truly the zenith of the evil dummy subgenre. For some reason, fucking huge in Poland, at least according to my peer list.

  • Gozu
    Takashi Miike's yakuza sex change roadmovie featuring mancows, ladles and a lactation-themed hotel. Awesome sauce.

  • Cloverfield
    Hard-to-miss blockbuster features quite a bit of inspiration for the eternal urban catastrophe/run-for-your-fucking-life atmosphere of Metropolis.

    And thanks to Zara2stra for bringing these up...

  • Marebito
    Unusual J-horror about a man's trip into a Bulwer-Lyttonian underworld, and the creature he brings back with him. Interesting CotN and dreamworld elements.

  • Spider Forest
    Beautiful and baffling Lynchian horror-drama from Korea. Homicidal/suicidal identity crises, mental breakdowns and timeloops.

  • Dead End
    A family on a Thanksgiving trip take a wrong turn onto a road with no turns and no end. To say more would drop a spoiler.


    TBC...

    I'm really agree with the actual list, only want to add one:

    Lost Room (very nice actual TV-series, some kultesque factors trough time and space).

    And i like to say Millennium is also one of my personal chooses, very inspiring...

    Updated first two posts here with a *lot* of images. I thought it might make it easier to see if you've already seen a movie or not. This takes a lot more time than I had expected, so progress is quite slow - sorry.

    I'll try to find some discussion threads to link to as well. ;)

    Please, when suggesting things - try to add an imdb link to the item, as it saves quite a lot of time (especially when there is ambiguity going on)!

    I would recommend most any Terry Gilliam film. The basic theme for most of his films is that someone's imagination/psychosis gets super imposed upon the world somehow. Whether it is for an individual only (Tideland) or for everyone (Time Bandits)

    Tideland (Discussion Thread)

    Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

    Time Bandits

    Brazil

    The Fischer King

    12 Monkeys

    Les RiviŔres Pourpres / Crimson Rivers - Discussion Thread
    French film. Two investigators played by Vincent Casell (Ocean's 13, La Haine) and Jean Reno (Leon, Ronin) working separateo cases cross paths in an occult plot that stems from Guernon, where it seems that thing go a little deeper than expected... Filmed in Fabrice's back-yard.

    I would add the following:
    -David Cronenberg's "They Came Frome Within" Flawed, but some great ideas for a Gamalial inspired plot
    -Lucio Fulci's "The Beyond" Doorway to Hell opens and reality takes a permenant vacation as a result
    -Peter Jackson's "The Frighteners" Jacksons first mainstream American flick. Cast includes Micheal J Fox and (my all-time favorite actor) Jeffry Combs. I think it does a good job of conveying what it's like to see past the 'reality' that everybody else takes for granted and be affected by it
    -"The Johnsons" A Dutch horror flick; they obviously weren't sure how to end it, but worked well most of the way through
    _"Pumpkinhead" What happens when your worst desires take on a (literal) life of their own

    Also "The Truman Show." Yeah, the one with Jim Carrey. I think it's a really Gnostic movie, even though it might not be too obvious at first.

    my apologies (especially to underspawn) for being a retard and not reading the list properly and mentioning pans labyrinth when it had already been mentioned.

    and here we probably go again...

    ...dead mans shoes...
    or most things by shane meadows for the emotional extremes that can help GMing by watching delivery and transition (even though that isnt particularly kult, its still helpful) but this film in particular because of the disturbing sinister and violent themes coupled with the mental issues or psychosis and how it is shown

    and in a similar note, ...two hands...an old aussie film with the late and soon to be very great heath ledger (well, i always thought he was good but im sure we're all waiting for his joker with baited breathe)

  • Possession discussion
    Divorce drama, Kult style. Batshit insane.

  • Vargtimmen / Hour of the Wolf
    Bergman's mesmeric tale of an artist's inexorable descent into craziness.

  • Beyond Dream's Door
    Abject b-movie with some worthwhile notions in which a student is tormented by a (floppy rubber) demon from his dreams.

  • The Stone Tape
    A team of researchers notice some ghostly goings-on at an old manor house. Nigel Kneale's seminal BBC horror play dealing with technology uncovering hidden and horrible layers of reality.

    Maybe it's been mentioned yet, but 'Repulsion' by Roman Polanski is really disturbing.

    Also, there once was a Danish miniseries called 'The Kingdom' (I think) about a hospital where stuff happened that really shouldn't have. I don't remember much of it, but it was quite good.

    Finally, there's this movie called 'The Believer'; it's a bit like American History X, but with the' fucked up' dial set way higher. Nothing horror/supernatural like, but a very good look on how truly disturbed people can be.

    I remember that Danish miniseries, can't remember the name but it was spooky as hell. Of course I would only have known the danish name or the icelandic translation, not the english name.

    Of course the most scary stuff is as true to reality as possible, exploring peoples insanity and how evil real people can be.
    I mean, most of us couldn't even have scripted like those fucked up Austrians who keep people in secret cellars. And impregnate their daughter and such.
    That reminds us that fucked up comes from inside, not from dripping tentacle horrors which slide up from below.



    ...and I will sing the song that ends the earth.

    OK, so I didn't just imagine it :P

    By the way, since there's a lot of scandinavians at these forums, I want to ask something: Once upon a time, there was a short TV series called something like 'Edderkoppen' (IIRC, it means 'The Spider') I think it was Danish, but I'm not sure.

    Anyway, it was a genuine 'noir' series, set in the fifties, when all the men drank whiskey and wore trenchcoats, and all the women were femme fatales, you know the type. I remember it as being very good, but I never got to see the end, so I'm still looking for it.

    The series was subtitled in Dutch when it was broadcast here, but I've not been able to find any subbed versions (english would be fine, of course), so I want to ask: do you know it, and do you know any place I could get a (subbed) version from?

    Very very true.
