We keep on looking through the seemingly endless library of movies on Netflix, today looking at the best movies the site has under their Cult Movies section.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) - Directed by Michel Gondry - Brilliant drama about a man who hires a company to erase the memories of his ex, but decides halfway through the process, which takes place inside his head, that maybe that isn't the best idea.

Mean Girls (2004) - Directed by Mark Waters - Great Tina Fey comedy about the trials and tribulations of getting through high school in a school full of crazy, popularity obsessed teenage girls.

The Exorcist (1973) - Directed by William Friedkin - One of the few movies that has held its fright factor over many years and many imitators. About a little girl that is possessed by a team and the Priest that tries to exorcise it from her.

Trainspotting (1996) - Directed by Danny Boyle - Boyle's troubling adaptation of the famous novel about young people in Scotland battling heroin addiction.

Kingpin (1996) - Directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly - One of the better, if not the best, Farrelly brothers comedy about a bowler trying to get back to the top of his game.

The Burbs (1989) - Directed by Joe Dante - Crazy film like they don't make anymore, as Tom Hanks and Carrie Fischer play a couple who has a creepy new family move in next door that might be up to some sinister stuff. Bruce Dern is fantastically funny as one of the other neighbors.

Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996) - Directed by Mike Judge - Judge showed off his ability early with this film adaptation of his MTV show about two teenage idiots.

The Warriors (1979) - Directed by Walter Hill - Great street actioner about a New York gang that must fight their way out when they are falsely accused of murdering a rival leader.

The Host (2006) - Directed by Joon-ho Bong - Awesome Korean creature feature about a river monster that terrorizes Seoul. Just an insane amount of fun.

Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994) - Directed by Wes Craven - The best Freddy Krueger movie, in this one Freddy haunts the actual cast and crew of The Nightmare on Elm Street. The meta-ness of it all is makes it crazy clever and scary.
