Cult Movie Monday! “Single White Female” Packs A Punch! It’s “Crazy Roommate” Time!

How about this for a tagline?

“Allie’s new roommate is about to borrow a few things without asking. Her clothes. Her boyfriend. Her life.”

Watch out Allie, you are living with a perfect example of “Cult Movie Monday!”

My weekly look at cult films moves into a nice New York apartment with Allie, who doesn’t realize what kind of crazy roommate she has in the bedroom next to hers!

Single White Female

Talk about a great idea for a movie! This 1992 thriller stars Jennifer Lason Leigh, Bridget Fonda and Steven Weber, and was directed by Barbet Schroeder. It’s a great cult thriller with strong performances, fun twists, and a delicious sense of humor as well!

When a ‘Single White Female’ places an ad in the press for a similar woman to rent a room (to replace the boyfriend she’s just left), all the applicants seem weird. Then along comes a level headed woman who seems to be just right.

Oh, just one problem: the new “single white female” has a secret past which haunts her. Here is the trailer:

“You’ve got to be fucking kidding me…”

That’s what Bridget Fonda says when she realizes her new roommate is a psycho – because Leigh shows up one day sporting the EXACT same haircut as she has…and it gets worse thanks to Fonda’s easily-manipulated boyfriend.

Steven Weber plays Fonda’s boyfriend, who Leigh needs to get out of the way in order to get closer to Bridget. That leads to a blowup when Fonda is willing to take him back.

He will cheat on you again – that’s a promise. And when he does, don’t come crying to me, because… I’ve had it with you. You’re so FUCKING weak!

“Single White Female” is a terrific thriller, with great performances all around, especially by Jennifer Jason Leigh!

Every “Cult Movie Monday”, I will look at an offbeat slice of cinema that you may not know, or may not have seen, like this Kathleen Turner / Anthony Perkins film from 1984:

It’s wild and wacky, but a lot of trashy fun as well! See the trailer here:

“Single White Female” has a great “re-watch” as well, because it’s so much fun to watch the crazy go down!
