If you have to ask, you were never a member  ???   Ha.

Seriously (but loosely) speaking, the last definition I heard was a film not doing good initially in the box office but then becomes a success on DVD, midnight movies, etc.. with a constant following.

digitaldreamdoor.com definition. Cult movies are offbeat, strange, quirky, surreal, eccentric, campy, oddball, avant garde, often with outrageous characters, plots, and sets, that usually fared poorly at the box office but continue to live on with devoted and curious audiences.

Film appreciation isn't one of my strong suits, so wouldn't know.  I have DVDs on:

The Big Lebowski
Fight Club
Dr Strangelove (the atomic bomb movie from 62 - way before my time)

1. ...

Besides Fight Club and the Big L, I have Pulp Fiction, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Kill Bill as well, but those were commercially successful weren't they?  Wouldn't consider them cult films but if they are so designated so be it.

So my revised list would be the following:

Pulp Fiction
Kill Bill
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Fight Club
The Big Lebowski.

For someone who tries to be fairly peaceful I have a fairly violent taste in movies. Hmmmm.  Gotta see Surf Nazi's must Die (slightly risqué trailer ... don't play at work)
