Many films are touted as “cult” today - but only a few really deserve this title. We present you 30 films, which are still cult-worshiped by their numerous followers.

Rank 30: "Grease"
(Randal Kleiser, USA 1978)

The petticoat musical romance between the pomady daredevil Danny Zuko and the sweet, innocent Sandy was already a hit on Broadway, but in the film adaptation with the young John Travolta, who went to the disco the year before in "Saturday Night Fever" Olympus had danced, and the Australian singer Olivia Newton-John it became a cult. The hype about the snappy 50s love affair knew no bounds: The style of the fifties was suddenly “in” again, the soundtrack was the second best-selling album of the year in the USA in 1978 and the light-hearted, peppy duet “You're The One That I Want ”, sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, became a world hit. A German parody by Dieter Hallervorden and Helga Feddersen (“You, the tub is full”) followed immediately and jumped to number 4 in the single charts in this country. The cheerful naivety of the film was already out of date in 1978 and it is also one of the reasons that "Grease" is worshiped by millions of fans to this day - it was not for nothing that the film was released in 2017 as a Sing-A-Long karaoke version once again released in cinemas worldwide.
