The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Richard O'Brien's brilliantly bizarre story of creation, love, hate, adventure, and, most of all, sex. A young couple stumble upon a Transylvanian house party in this 1975 classic, based on O'Brien's stage musical.

Lost, rain-soaked and in a broken down car, two newlyweds take refuge in an isolated castle belonging to the flamboyant transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Alongside other visitors from the planet Transsexual, Frank-N-Furter unveils his creation, a young man named Rocky Horror, who fears the doctor and rejects his sexual advances. When Frank-N-Furter announces that he is returning to the galaxy Transylvania, Riff Raff the butler and Magenta the maid declare that they have plans of their own.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Don't Dream It, Be It!

What a movie! It grabs you, shakes you up, and spits you out as a transvestite with a fetish. From Brad and Janet, our so-called heroes, to Dr. Scott and Dr. Frank-N-Furter, noone is safe from the movie's motto - Give Yourself Over To Absolute Pleasure! The movie is faithful to the award-winning stage show - an amazing experience on stage or as a...

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is not so much a movie as more of a long-running social phenomenon. When the film was first released in 1975 it was ignored by pretty much everyone, including the future fanatics who would eventually count the hundreds of times they'd seen it...

The film itself is filled with great tunes and a slightly loopy plot. So it's just like your common-or-garden 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...
