Actor Alan Cumming best known as Nightcrawler from the movie X2 is host of Sundance Channels Midnight Snack where he sits through bizarre cult films like Orgazmo, a musical about a Mormon who becomes a porn superhero to finance his wedding; and the 1977 bomb, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, a movie he says is so strange it allows a person to imagine theyre on hallucinogenics without actually doing any drugs.
Cumming admits the hosting job is like calling attention to a train wreck, but then theres the joy of introducing audiences to something new, such as Its All About Love, a 2003 thriller starring Sean Penn, Claire Danes and Joaquin Phoenix.
Although its billed as a futuristic fantasy about ecological disasters, clones and celebrity figure skaters, Cumming was happy to discover its really good.
Midnight Snack debuts for its second season on Dec. 2 with the Emilio Estevez punk comedy, Repo Man.
