  • Great Substitute for the Real Thing Mar 25, 2013
    by CurleyQ

    If you're too old to want to go to the midnight showing at your local theater, this is a great substitute, provided you've already cleared the floor to dance and sing (popcorn not recommended unless you love cleaning). This movie remains great fun--perhaps more so now than even the original--and is a MUST HAVE for any serious movie fan.

    Great musical fun! Campy, colorful, alive with pleasure:P Fun in and OUT of the theater. Always great for a party or for Halloween. Once you lose it to Rocky Horror, you keep coming back! Have a blast and see it today!

  • Don't Lose This One Between Genres May 13, 2010

    TITLE: The Rocky Horror Picture Show
    GENRE: Musical Comedy based on The Rocky Horror Show
    CAST: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O'Brien, Patricia Lady Stevens Quinn, Nell Campbell, Peter Hinwood, Jonathan Adams and Charles Gray
    PLOT: Romance gone right meets excursion gone wrong meets weather gone bad meets dark mysterious castle gone haywire meets mad zombie birthday crowd meets mad scientist meets adonis incarnate meets failed experiments meets pick axe meets real scientist meets corpse for dinner meets sexual escapades as long as no one whispers a word meets medusa machine meets floor show from hell meets aliens come to stop the mad scientist meets his doom.
    RETURN ON INVESTMENT: Closed minds = 2 of 10: Open minds will want to keep sending money every time they watch it 9 of 10; Transvestite costumes lacy garters and corsets, okay, Dialog, okay Songs okay choreography okay lighting and sets okay high heels okay, make-up (lots of it) okay swim scenes went by too fast. That this is a take off off most musical comedies and SciFi Class B movies is evident in their opening homage to the genre. Scientific machinery hokey as it should be.
    DVD BONUS: The film as ended in USA and in UK versions,commentary overdub; dvd-Rom Game (didn't check it out) audience participation cues. Introduction from the fan club (All on one Disc? Yup)
    ADDED NOTES: This movie was made at the end of Hollywood musical comedy genre and the beginning of MTV. It was filling the need for a generation lost to Gene Kelly and Doris Day who still wanted that group enjoyment of just illogically breaking out in song. For about a decade, this film was shown regularly on Weekend nights at midnight showings and developed a cult of college aged fans. A theater in Germany in fact holds the record for continuous showing of a single feature by continually looping this film since 1977! I almost wanted to join in but I can't walk in heels (Don't ask how I know)

    I have always loved this movie, but it has been so hard to get. I am very happy that I have now found it and can watch it whenever I like. Just brilliant acting by Tim Curry (Frankenfurter), Meatloaf and many others.

    If you haven't seen this movie, you don't live on this planet, Janet.
