Thankfully though a lot of these movies managed to get something of a cult following following positive reviews and word of mouth, leading to them enjoying success on home media platforms.

Of course while it’s nice that these film’s went on to enjoy some degree of success we’re pretty sure that studios who bank rolled them would have preferred them to turn a profit.
