  1. Vincent Price indeed belongs on this list, he and horror go together like
    PB & J, so sad how he died in his last movie, right on set, that fatal
    heart attack in Edward Scissorhands was the real deal.

    Steve Buscemi was an underrated actor, i appreciated when he was in movies,
    especially some of the big ones like Con Air and Armageddon.

    sadly i only knew of Pam Grier for her appearances in Martin and In Living

    oh yeah, Dennis Hopper, he’s a good one, havent seen that many movies he’s
    been in though.

    Robert Englund counts as a Cult actor? well i guess he pretty much was only
    well known for the Nightmare on Elm Street films.

    now Cult Classics is what good old Kurt Russell is about, he’s been in so
    many John Carpenter films it’s unreal.

    hmm, i guess Christopher Lee is a Cult actor, i mean aside from the Lord of
    the Rings trilogy playing Saruman, he did a great many B-movies and movies
    that went far under the radar, true story the first time i saw Christopher
    Lee was in a movie i rented called “The Land of Far Faraway.”

    Tim Curry made #2? XD nice, i liked his voice in movies and cartoons,
    definitely defined and unique like Christopher Lee before him.

    Bruce Campbell reigns as King of the Cult Movie Celebs for another year,
    and he doesnt do bad in tv series either, loved when he was on Hercules:
    The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess and Burn Notice.
