Where have cult classics gone?

While midnight movie buffs go through the audience interaction motions with decades-old reels of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “This is Spinal Tap,” newer attempts at finding this generation’s version of those phenomena have mostly failed. Richard Kelly’s bloated, forced “Southland Tales” failed to attract positive attention, and the most recent cult success dates back to 1998’s “The Big Lebowski.”

These movies, rescued from obscurity by devoted audiences, were stale before writer/director/producer/actor/editor Tommy Wiseau brought “The Room” to packed screenings.
