But back in the day, they were quite strong and influential. We’ve got a list of TOP 10 best new Cult movies 2018 for you, ladies, and gentlemen.
Even though it’s all in the past now, there are still some communities and, well, cults that operate from the shadows. They are among us, but we can’t see them. If you’re into that kind of a thing and love mysterious, gripping and thrilling films, check out our picks for today!
Dead Snow 3
Yes, we do know that this movie is ridiculous in more than one way, but you can’t deny the fact that the first two chapters were fun. This is one of those franchises that we usually like to call a “guilty pleasure”. Besides, Hitler is back from the dead and is ready to take over the globe once again. This time around, his armies will be stronger and his secret agents will infiltrate the world’s elite. Expect a mind-blowing experience with tons of blood, bad CGI effects and even worse dialogues. Winter is coming…
Buzzard Hollow Beef
Have you ever felt like you were trapped in a reality where a group of aggressive hillbillies is trying to skin you alive? Well, the heroes of BHB certainly do know what that feels like. In this crazy psychedelic horror, a lovely American family goes through a super-realistic series of hallucinations that make them believe they are being attacked by local monsters that want to eat their flesh. Sounds gross, we know, but as far as the TOP 10 best recent Cult movies go, we bet this one’s going to be the talk of the town. At least among the fans of this genre.
Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich
Edgar just went through a nasty divorce and is seeking peace and order. So, he goes back to the home where he grew up to get himself together. There, he finds a sinister-looking puppet in his bruv’s room and sells the nasty thing to make some bucks.
Ashley, a beautiful girl from the neighborhood and his buddy embark on a journey to an auction event. Everything goes smoothly until someone takes control over the puppets and makes them go after the humans and kill them in the most gruesome ways. Who is capable of doing something like that, and what’s their endgame?
The Purge 4
You think that cults aren’t a real thing anymore? Then what about a government conspiracy against its own people called The Purge? Chapter #4 will take us back to the roots and tell the story of this horrifying…event. Who came up with this idea and what will the heroes have to do to stop them? We’ve already seen three films in this franchise – all of them solid. And now it’s finally time to learn the truth about it. It’s safe to say that if you loved the other chapters, this one will be right up your alley. Definitely, a great title on the list of best Cult 2018.
We don’t even have to tell you anything about this weird monster. Back in 2009, some folks started discussing it and in a couple of years, Slenderman became the most popular villain in the universe. Long hands, long legs, a strict suit and no face – that’s what it looks like. The industry is full of amateur movies featuring this tall-as-hell monster, but this is the first time a big-time company with a solid budget is going to introduce its own version of events. Where did Slenderman come from? Are there others like it? And finally – is it a member of a nefarious cult or not?
The Happytime Murders
The entire cast of a popular TV show for the little ones becomes the target of an insane serial killer. Why does he want them all dead? Does it have anything to do with revenge, or maybe the man is just another psychopath? In any case, it’s up to a disgraced officer with the Los-Angeles police department to make sense of these killings and bring the murderer to justice. One more thing: in this reality, the humans and the puppet live side by side with each other…Of the TOP 10 best Cult movies of 2018 to watch, this one’s a no-brainer.
We bet the fans of video-games are smiling right now. Yes, Mr. Drake is finally ready to hop onto the big screen and surprise us all with a mighty mix of action, adventure, and mystery. All his life he’s been hunting ancient artifacts, hidden communities and other secrets of humanity. This time around, he’s after El Dorado – the city that most modern-day historians consider to be a fairytale. Get ready for mutant slash zombie Nazis chasing after Drake. Yes, the original game series was all about realism, but a little bit of fantasy won’t hurt, right?
After lurking in the shadows for way too long, Halloween is officially making a comeback in 2018. It’s worth mentioning that even though sequels and/or remakes to good-old classics are always popular, this film might just fail commercially. The producers will have to deliver a true blockbuster in order for the contemporary audience to get excited.
With that said, we believe they’ve got what it takes to do that. Mr. Carpenter himself is heavily involved with this project, which gives us hope that everything will work out. Without a doubt, Halloween is one of the TOP 10 best modern Cult films 2018.
The Strangers 2
If you’ve seen the original Strangers, then you probably consider it to be one of the finest home-invasion films in history. Good news: the sequel is about to hit the international theaters next year. It’s coming on May 9, 2018 – right when the series will celebrate its tenth anniversary. The story follows a family on a road trip.
They stop at a tiny town to get some food and gas and decide to spend the night. After the lights go out, it’s obvious that the family is in for a real “treat”. Will any member of the family survive, or are they all destined to die? That’s the biggest question on our minds right now.
The fans of creepy horrors will tell you that The Conjuring is pretty much the best series in the genre these days. In fact, it’s so popular and commercially successful that The Nun is a spin-off. The plot is centered on a priest – Mr. Burke – who is tasked with a perilous mission: to investigate the passing of a nun. She died in the most unusual circumstances, and it’s up to this man to learn the truth about that tragedy. And that’s it for our what is the best Cult movies in 2018 list.
