Join the Cult

The Cult Movies Podcast never fails. Every episode is insightful and inspiring: to revisit favorite cult films or seek out gems as yet unseen. Host Anthony has a real knack for diving in and teasing out great discussions on fascinating films along with his guests.

A Terrific Podcast for lovers of Cult Cinema

Brilliant premise using Danny Peary’s classic books as a guide and reference. I have listened to most of the episodes and the guests are terrific as well as Anthony King, the host. Some fairly well known film appreciation folks as well as some filmtwitter regulars keep the show grounded with open, intelligent and interesting discussion. The show is in my regular listening rotation and I look forward to each new episode. I highly recommend Anthony King’s Cult Movie Podcast.
