A great cult movie is like a weird underground discovery, that feels so strange and wonderful, you suspect that you’re the first person ever to appreciate it properly. But certain cult films have acquired fame and influence to rival any blockbuster, and have become part of our shared vocabulary.
Rusted Wave is an online destination where you can buy vintage cult movie T-Shirts. They have a growing collection at very reasonable prices with great customer service. Here is a small list of tees you should consider for your wardrobe.
Mixed Veggies – Wet Hot American Summer
If you’re one of the hip kids (and if you’re not, you should aspire to be), you should know all about The State, the MTV sketch comedy show that aired from 1993 to 1995. For his first directorial effort, David Wain gathered a bunch of his former State cohorts (co-writer Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino) to mock summer camp flicks in the 2001 ensemble comedy Wet Hot American Summer.
Aside from featuring future stars such as Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks; the film also showcases a truly hilarious performance from Christopher Meloni as an off the rails cook named Gene. In one of the most memorable moments of the film, Gene gets some profound guidance from a talking can of vegetables (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin).
Printed on a comfy, natural color Next Level premium tee, this shirt will always remind you that you should always be honest with yourself – whether you want to confess your love to the girl of your dreams or you simply want to rub mud on inappropriate parts of your body. Order Now, $23.75
Arty’s Camp Firewood Tee – Wet Hot American Summer
Wet Hot American Summer features a plethora of young kids who are coming of age. This includes the kid that all of us knew growing up, and nobody wanted to stand near – the kid who never takes a shower. In WHAS that kid is Arty (Liam North), a young lad with broadcasting aspirations and an extreme aversion to water. He also liked to wear his Camp Firewood T-shirt – day in, day out.
This premium combed and hand-spun cotton tee has a perfect worn-in feel that any t-shirt snob should be able to appreciate. Just make sure you take a shower before wearing it. Order Now, $23.75
Hopkins Award – Wet Hot American Summer
Wet Hot American Summer features another memorable performance from (Dr. Niles Crane himself) David Hyde Pierce as Professor Henry Newman, the dorky astrophysics expert-next-door who must save the camp from a falling piece of a NASA space station. He also had quite the thing for the camp’s director, Beth (Janeane Garofalo).
Land a camp director of your own as you commemorate Professor Neumann’s receipt of the Hopkins Award with this premium tee made of combed and ring-spun cotton for the super-soft, worn-in feel. Also, FYI, a little birdie told us that this shirt will be finding its way onto a character on Orphan Black this season. Just throwing that out there. Order Now, $23.75
Toxic Avenger Wanted – The Toxic Avenger
The film that basically put Troma on the map, The Toxic Avenger follows Melvin Ferd III, a 98-pound weakling, who works as a janitor at the Tromaville Health Club in Tromaville, New Jersey. After accidentally falling into a drum of toxic waste (thanks to an ill-advised prank gone wrong) he transforms into a hideously deformed creature with superhuman size and strength.
