'''Danny Peary''' (born 1949) is a renowned American film critic, who published three influential books about "Cult Movies" in the early 1980s. Each book provides analytical essays about the plot and themes of all the films listed. Peary's books did a lot to attract attention to cult movies in the mainstream media and are often used as a reference guide. He established the definition of the phenomenon as a "movie that polarized audiences on its release and is only popular with a small number of enthusiasts, who spread information about it by word-of-mouth." Some of them are VindicatedByHistory or VindicatedByCable. Many of the films he elevated to cult movie status are now considered {{Cult Classic}}s. His list is very versatile and spans from the silent era to the ''midnight movie'' classics of the 1970s and early 1980s.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The first volume was written in 1981, when VHS wasn't yet that common and many ''midnight movies'' still had to see a video release. In a large city you could probably find a movie theater play some of these cult classics, but not in suburbs or rural areas. As a result many titles were sometimes very obscure but intrigueing for the casual movie fan.
