Give yourself over to absolute pleasure
"It was great when it all began..." Celebrate the ultimate movie madness! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an "erotic nightmare beyond measure." Relive Richard O'Brien's sinful twisted salute to horror, sci-fi, B-movies and rock music--a "sensual daydream to treasure forever"--starring Tim Curry (in his classic gender-bending performance), Barry Bostwick and Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon. Do the "Time Warp" and sing "Hot Pataootie" with Meatloaf again...and again...and again...at home, or in a movie theater, where it will probably be playing for another 25 years!

Editor's Note
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a magical phenomenon unlike anything ever before seen onscreen. Borrowing largely from cinema's horror conventions, the film begins as an innocent young couple is stranded at the home of a mad scientist who is building the perfect man. The castle is filled with a most bizarre group of characters who worship their master, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, played magnificently by the fabulously sexy Tim Curry, in leather jacket, pearls, fishnet stockings, and heavy makeup. Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) are forced to examine their own sexuality as the voluptuous doctor releases the hidden desires in each of them.

Based on the stage musical by Richard O'Brien (who also appears in the film as Riff Raff), the film comes alive with unforgettable song-and-dance numbers that have come to represent the sexual liberation of the 1970s. The outstanding costuming and makeup, the terrific acting by a group of relative unknowns (Curry, O'Brien, Bostwick, Sarandon, Nell Campbell, Patricia Quinn, Meat Loaf), and the memorable songs ("Time Warp," "Sweet Transvestite") help make THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW one of the most bizarrely entertaining and satisfying musicals ever made.

Plot Summary
This campy cult classic is the most popular midnight movie of all time. A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite; Tim Curry's sensational entrance as Dr. Frank-N-Furter is a marvel to behold. The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie in the theater.

Professional Reviews

USA Today
"...This cultural phenom plays surprisingly well at home..." 11/06/1990 p.3D

Total Film
"...[With] quotable B-movie dialogue, sassy visual flair, some ridiculously catchy musical numbers and a killer performance from Tim Curry..." 04/01/2001 p.108

BBCi 8 of 10
...The film itself is filled with great tunes and a slightly loopy plot. So it's just like your common-or-garden-variety musical in that way. Where the film really takes off is in its subversion of sexual mores as Brad and Janet break free from their normality... Will it appeal to everyone? Certainly not. But for those willing to experiment with something a little bit different...The Rocky Horror Picture Show has a lot to offer. - Piers Beckley
