Two stranded travelers find themselves at the mercy of a mad doctor aptly named Frank-n-Furter and his eccentric guests…
Both an homage to old science fiction films and a send-up of sexual mores, and starring a surprising cast – Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick (as the demure Janet and uptight Brad, who get lost in a storm), Meat Loaf (as the rebel Eddie), Charles Gray (as our criminologist and narrator) and, of course, the inimitable Tim Curry as our "sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania" – The Rocky Horror Picture Show was, upon its release in 1975, an astounding flop. But a few devotees persuaded a New York cinema to show it at midnight, and thus was born one of the ultimate cult films of all time. The songs are addictive (just try getting The Time Warp or Toucha Toucha Touch Me out of your head), the raunchiness perfectly amusing and the plot line utterly ridiculous. Moreover, for those who wish to perfect their lip-synching techniques or for those who want to gather a crowd for some good, old-fashioned, rowdy fun, this film can't be beat. Deviant and pure genius.
