pulp ficiton (indie/cult? one of QT's firsts)
not one of his 1st, nor was it as low budget as his others, but definately a great movie. I've never disliked anything done by tarentino.

All of the above, plus
Vanishing Point ( I thought it was really dumb until I actually watched it, it is a good movie)
Evil dead (and the rest of them)
Necronomicon
The day of the animals (very old, but still creepy low budget with snakes to boot)
House

That is about all I can think of, you guys pretty much named them all.

Not sure if it's really an indie, but an excellent movie that I can't believe I forgot to mention:
City of God

the children of dune was indie, dune could be considered cult i'm sure. i posted city of god i my 1st post;) oh btw on the kung fu films, while most aren't indie in chnia/japan they're definately cult here in the states. atleast that's my take on it.

p.s. city of god is one of my favorite movies.

Whoops, sorry bout that, just plain forgot I guess. So yeah, anyway, that's true about Kung fu movies being cult films here, so in that vein, here's the first and foremost in my opinion:
Enter the Dragon
