Cult Following evolved from the people who produce the Cult Classics AZ film events in the Metro Phoenix Arizona area and the genre events at Alamo Drafthouse Phoenix. We’re a big group of film lovers and we review our favorite films and write about films and film and pop culture here on Cult Following. Our current writing staff includes Victor Moreno, Kirby Nelson, Joshua T. Ruth, Ruby Tate, Adam Rutkowski, and Ann Rutkowski.

Victor is also a member of the Phoenix Film Critics Society and occasionally contributes to their website with articles at https://phoenixfilmcriticssociety.org/.

We are also a film and pop-culture podcast network and currently produce several podcasts on our network; our flagship show Cult Following discussing all aspects of film culture and recent releases, Cult Following Xtra – which is when the whole crew can’t get together, and Cinema Fantastico, consisting of the limited series Beards on Breen, and the ongoing View & Spew Review, which look at films and nostalgia. We also have a horror-movie themed podcast called Horror/Cult, looking at horror culture and genre films.

We are also a YouTube partner and upload lots of pop culture/film/collectibles-themed content on our YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/c/cultclassics. We chronicle our trips to pop culture events, reviews, and much more to our followers. We invite you to subscribe!
