Students will produce a researched, original paper on a topic related to cult cinema. The student may
choose any topic that interests them, but it must relate in some way to course content, either through
readings, open questions, ideas, or particular films or authors. Students are strongly encouraged to
discuss potential paper topics with the instructor.

The final research paper must be in perfect Standard Paper Format (see below), with perfect MLA
citations. The paper will contain at least six scholarly sources (NOT including films, popular press
sources, or journalism; no more than one website, and must include outside research not found on our
course syllabus) and contains 8-10 pages of content not including your works cited page or title page.
