ProOpen minded musical

ConsSome songs are a bit boring

The Rocky Horror Picture Show 1975 was the year in which one of my new found favourite musicals was released, directed by Jim Sharman and Tim Curry who is has starred in many films. This film combines madness, Mary Shelley's idea for Frankenstein in a sexier fashion and openness for sexuality...

I fell in love with Rocly Horror after going to Hull New Theatre to see Jason Donovan strut his stuff as Frank N Furter. The crowd was wild, the dresses were phenomenal, that bloke from Corrie (the one who did those crap windows ads) was the narrator! The only trouble was... I hadn't a clue what...

The first time I watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show was a real let-down. This was in 1975, after having had my fill of The Rocky Horror Show in the King’s Road Theatre. Goodness knows, I had seen the stage show so many times and knew every nuance of every actor, from Tim Curry and...

Following ten days of watching 1950's sci-fi movies, I decided to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show for both a break and further research for a Meat Loaf 60th birthday tribute article. It was with a sense of irony that the opening song to the film is "Science Fiction - Double Feature", which is...

It was somewhat embarrassing when, a couple of years ago, I had to confess that I had never seen Rocky Horror Picture Show. My drama group had been given the task of performing “Time Warp” for the schools talent show (don’t ask me why) and I had been given the role of Columbia. Due to having been...

Hmmmmmm - I still remember watching this oddball movie for the first time, and I must confess that I just didn’t get it. I did get the inkling that there was something going on that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. So I watched it again, and thought it was very amusing. Then again...

ConsME DANCING ALONG TO THE SONGS!

One of my favourite films of all time has to be ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’. It is now nearly thirty years old and yet I find the issues it creates are as relevant today as they were in the early 1970’s. It is a stereotyped science fiction movie, portrayed in a format, which...

ProQuotable, kitsch, funny

Constoo much of a good thing can be bad for you

At the late night, double feature picture show, you might bump into a tall dark man in a basque. We’re talking about a film that has made many a rational human being shout random sections of script, just for the sheer pleasure of doing so. The musical on which the film is based opened June...

If you have not seen this film yet, you have not lived, and I command you to see it at once!!! The best way is still to go to the cinema or to the stage production, but a close second is this DVD release. I am talking about the 25th Anniversary double dvd boxset.

I never really understood the appeal of this film until I heard the music and watched the film. Yes, I know that sounds faintly loopy – but you know what I mean. You hear people talking about it. You read things saying how good it is. But you just think to yourself – “Well...

Consnone - sorry

If a musical/science fiction/parody about an alien transvestite building the perfect man while playing strange sex games with his visitors, sounds like an interesting start for a movie, then you're in for a treat. Not only is this film all of the above and more, but it stars a brilliant cast...

It's wacky, it's crazy, it's mad, it's fun, it's fruity, it's FANG-tastic - It's the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW!

"Don't dream it. Be it." What is the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Let’s start at the beginning! In 1973, Richard O'Brien, a New Zealand-born Londoner (now known for The Crystal Maze amongst other things), named wrote The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This was a play like none other. It opened at...

Product Information : The Rocky Horror Picture Show (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

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 fabulous 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 Tranvestite') help make THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW one of the most bizarrely entertaining and satisfying musicals ever made.
