Not every blockbuster is destined to be remembered forever, just as not every B-movie is destined to be forgotten the moment it leaves theaters.

Sometimes these small and original movies build up a huge fan base that helps them become a true cult hit, something that can be re-watched and talked about despite its small budget and poor box office results.

It's important to note that not all of the above movies are great. Some, like "Plan 9 from Outer Space", are even considered to be some of the worst movies ever made. But that doesn't mean they're not worth watching!

On the contrary, the poor qualities of the movies themselves can prove to be an exciting thing to watch and laugh at. The directors of these films were true pioneers who decided to bend the norms of cinema even with the small budgets they were given, and you have to respect such a dedication to the craft.

And, of course, many of the films on this list are true and highly influential masterpieces, with David Lynch's "Eraserhead" clearly standing above the rest. Don't judge a film by its B-movie status!
