    Deep Throat is probably the most sucessful. It cost only $25,000 to produce, yet brought in over $600 million.

    Eraserhead is probably my favorite low-budget film.

    Napoleon dynamite

    The budget was about $400,000.

    The movie brought in $46 million

    Jon Heder (napoleon) was only offered $1000 for his roll.

    i think both "boondock saints" and "reservoir dogs" were shot on the cheap.

    i love clerks too.
