Here’s a weird fact very few people know about me: I have a heart for musicals. Not all of them and no you won’t see me standing in line for Momma Mia on Broadway, but I love the weird ones. And let’s face it, how many movies are as strange as the Rocky Horror Picture Show?
Brad and Janet are two wholesome young people are newly engaged. After Brad pops the question at the wedding of a mutual friend, they decide to ride off to tell the good news to there mentor and friend, Dr. Everett Scott. As fate would have it though, their car breaks down during a bad storm and the couple wanders to a nearby mansion for assistance. What they find is madness, depravity, sexual awakening, desire, aliens, and the perfect lover. Welcome to the home of Dr. Frank N Furter.
This movie is something everyone should experience at least once, musical fan or not. This movie is fun, absolute batshit but I love it. Tim Curry is a legend if not for anything else, it’s his portrayal of Frank N. Furter. The cast is memorable and the music and dances are infectious. The movie is unexpectedly hilarious and heart felt at times. The only real issue I have is the pacing is off and there are a few parts where the movie feels longer than it should and there is some dragging parts. In the end, while this movie sure as hell ain’t for everybody, I highly recommend and may the gaming gods do the time warp.
