Slingblade and Fargo are cult classics in this house.  I have memorized every line, I think.  

Strange Brew, starring Doug and Bob McKenzie from the Labatts commercials.....

The 1st Cohen brothers film "Blood Simple" still my favorite of all their films with the exception of "The Big Lebowski"

Hey guys, the OP said low budget. Most of the movies listed here are  definitely big budget, though they are great!

 

One of my all time favourite small budget movies has to be “House of Games” with Lindsay Crouse and Joe Montegna, directed by David Mamet.

He said "or"

 

What's considered low though?  

 

I just looked up the budget on the movies I recommended because I thought they were little know or under appreciated, as well as a few others that I thought would be low.  All I can say is WOW making movies ain't cheap.  Clerks is probably the best value that's been posted so far, it was shot for like $20 something thousand.

I have never understood why that movie doesn't get much attention.  It is a really complex story told well and beautifully shot.  Again, I can't recommend it enough.

No doubt about it.

Low budget by LOTR director Peter Jackson. (His first film).

 

The perfectly titled "Bad Taste".

Aliens, exploding sheep and obligatory gore.

What more could you want?

Or possibly "Cannibal Woman in the Avocado Jungle of Death".

A feminist retelling of Conrad's "Heart of Darkness".

More or less.

I liked "Tucker & Dale vs Evil" so much I gave it a shout out on it's own thread recently. 

 

This thread is where the hidden gems are. 

Another is "Fundamentals of Caring". Tremendous movie. 

 

"Mud" got some attention, and a thread of its own here, but not nearly the recognition it deserves.

The gods’ must be crazy

 

a bit more main stream: The world’s fastest Indian 

 

completely commercial: Guardians of the Galaxy 

 

And for something completely different: Anything touched by a Python, especially To Norway, Home of Giants

Sling Blade with an over the top performance by Billy Bob Thorton is one I almost forgot about...Billy Bob's voice in character still sticks with me. Robert Duval does a memorable cameo, as well.

This was the only movie from this thread that I could find that was free to watch last night.  It was an OK movie.  The only quotable line is "They chopped off his bowling fingers!"
