Directors John Waters (Pink Flamingos), David Lynch (Eraserhead), George A Romero (Night of the Living Dead), Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo), Perry Henzell (The Harder They Come), and Richard O'Brien (creator and star of The Rocky Horror Picture Show) becaume underground superstars and their legacy is all encompassing to this day.
