The Rocky Horror Picture Show

July 24, 2010

People aren't kidding when they say that The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a strange film. Filled with bisexual mad scientists, creepy servants, rock n' roll musical numbers, and plenty of sexual innuendo, the film's definitely not for everybody. The film's certainly a trip, but I can't help but feel that this story doesn't work nearly as well on-film as it does on-stage. It feels empty without audience participation and that lack of interaction makes for something that feels far less memorable.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show tells the tale of a newly engaged couple, Brad and Janet, who find themselves lost and with a flat tire on a cold and rainy, late November evening. Seeking a phone for help, the couple stumbles upon a nearby castle that's filled with outlandish scientists, tap-dancers, servants, and Transylvanians.
