Name That Cult Movie: The Answering

You've picked bachelor number two!Answers away! For the first time, several movies weren't identified in comments! Goodness! You people need to start renting crappy movies right away! For quick reference, I'll mark in red the numbers of the movies that were not recognized. Thanks for playing; we have some lovely parting gifts for you!

1. "Hello! Hello, hello! Here I am with a flying saucer in my lap, not to mention an escaped convict, and I can't get this phone to work!"- Devil Girl From Mars: This is your standard black & white "aliens come to earth to kidnap us for breeding stock" 50's sci-fi movie, but I have a lot of affection for it, because:
  • It was actually based on a play, if you can believe it. If you think this movie is dull, imagine watching it live with no special effects!
  • The "Devil Girl" is totally decked out like an outer space dominatrix, with an awesome cardboard box-bot, and
  • The people in this movie drink. A lot. Any time the conversation dies down, out come the bottles of whiskey. I find that simultaneously goofy and charming.

2. "I am Ergo the Magnificent! Short in stature, tall in power, narrow of purpose, and wide of vision, and I do not travel with peasants and beggars. Good bye!"- Krull: Lots of people recognized this one. Sure, it's lousy, but it does have a giant glass spider (pre David Bowie!), and the lead filled out his striped tights rather well.

3. "Those guys aren't even giving us a hard look."- I Married a Monster From Outer Space: One of my favorites; a real classic of 50's outer space nuttiness. More horny aliens trying to "save their race." Yeah, sure. Haven't these aliens ever heard of internet porn? Geez.

4. "You've overstepped your line again, Bub. There's a creator's highest law that keeps you in your dark place and yet you and your brethren still insist on coming into this world and trying to steal a place in the world of the living. When will you ever learn?"- Rock 'n Roll Nightmare: Sometimes only a picture can do a movie justice; this is one of those movies. So, courtesy of Deeky, I give you all you'll ever need to know about this movie:

It's awesome.

5. "Who the fuck hit me?"
"Batman, motherfucker!"- Black Belt Jones: I'd like to call this "blaxploitation at its most ridiculous," but I really love this movie, and Enter the Dragon's Jim Kelly, the hero, could probably crush my windpipe with his big toe. So I'll just say this movie rocks out loud, and has one of the funkiest soundtracks you'll ever hear.

6. "Where is the Mr. Pibb? I told your secretary to pack Mr. Pibb. It's the only Coke I like. Goddamn Brenda exploding like a water balloon, worms driving my friends around like they're goddamn skin-cars, people are spitting acid at me, turning you into cottage cheese, and now there's no fucking goddamn Mr. Pibb?"- Slither: Holy crap. This movie is awesome. Seriously, you have no idea how awesome it is. If you love horror/sci-fi, and you haven't seen this movie, rent it right now. Trust me. You can read my review here.

7. "No, no, more of the funny show, the little puppets hitting each other! That's what I like! Little things hitting each other!"- Time Bandits: The Movie that Changed My Life.

8. "Would I be correct in thinking that you can neither see nor hear me? Then I'd like to tell you that you smell of pee. You look like the wrong end of a dog. And I swear, if I don't get my Tristan back as he was, I'll be your personal poltergeist!"- Stardust: I saw this movie recently; I wanted to see it in the theater, but it vanished before I got the chance. Which is a shame, because it's a wonderful film, and it doesn't get half the recognition of The Princess Bride. Once you get past DeNiro's mincing portrayal of a closeted pirate captain (Come on, Robert; don't you know one homosexual in Hollywood?), it's really a lot of fun.

9. "Paul, this is more important than selling ice cream! There's clowns running around killing people; we're all in danger!"- Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Greatest Movie Ever Made. Don't question me.

10. "Send... more... paramedics."- Return of the Living Dead: An iconic moment in an iconic film. And the best part about it is, they do.
