Forget your multi-million dollar blockbusters and box-office smashers; this blog is all about cult movies with fan-power. From the ridiculous to the sublime, we’ve picked our top 5 cult classics currently available to stream on Roku streaming players.

Stephen Root starring as Milton Waddams in cult classic Office Space

Office Space (1999)
Unable to endure another mind-numbing day at Initech Corporation, cubicle slave Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) gets fired up and decides to get fired. Armed with a leisurely new attitude he soon masters the art of neglecting his work, which quickly propels him into the ranks of upper management! Now the stage is set for Peter to carry out a high-tech embezzling scheme that’s sure to mean the end of his job and a one-way ticket to easy street. However, not everything works out quite as planned. From writer/director Mike Judge.
(Available on Google Play, Amazon Video and NOW TV)

Kung Fury (2015)
A short film, released last year, Kung Fury has managed to build up an impressive following that puts it well on the way to cult status. Essentially a homage to ‘80s action movies, this comedy from David Sandberg centres on a renegade cop as he travels back in time to defeat Hitler. King Fury has everything you could wish for in a spoof: killer arcade machines, dinosaurs, Vikings and gloriously awful CGI effects. And David Hasselhoff sings the theme tune!
(Available on Netflix)

This is Spinal Tap (1984)
The ultimate ‘mockumentary’, This Is Spinal Tap follows a group of ageing rockers as they embark on a tour of the U.S. Watch as their progress is hampered by all manner of ludicrous setbacks – spontaneous human combustion, a diminutive Stonehenge and getting trapped inside stage props to name but a few.
(Available on Amazon Video and Google Play)

Tremors (1990)
As repairmen Val McKee (Kevin Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Fred Ward) attempt to escape the monotony of desert town life, their efforts are thwarted when they happen upon a series of mysterious deaths. A seismologist reports unnatural readings below the ground, suggesting something sinister is afoot. With the help of an eccentric couple (Reba McEntire, Michael Gross), the group fights for survival against giant, worm-like monsters hungry for human flesh.
(Available on Google Play, Amazon Video and Netflix)

Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
One of the most quotable films of all time and responsible for a deluge of ‘Vote Pedro’ t-shirts, Napoleon Dynamite takes us into the life of a socially-awkward but loveable oddball. Set in the small Idaho town of Preston, the story focuses on the local high school’s race for class president as Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro run a winning campaign.
(Available on Google Play and Amazon Video)
