Premise: An inquisitive young assistant district attorney (Linda Hamilton) discovers a wondrous, secret world beneath New York City and falls for the stoic, sweet Vincent (Ron Perlman), that world's beastly protector.
Why It's Cult: Vaguely supernatural, entirely romantic: Beauty was Twilight, 20 years ahead of its time. And the small but devoted fan base loved it to death (i.e., cancellation.) Marc Bernardin
