The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) Film Review

Rocky Horror
DIRECTOR: Jim Sharman
BOTTOM LINE: Every boy and every girl whether gay or straight, must see Richard O’Brien’s fantastical creation The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It has been running continuously on one stage or another/one film theatre or another for almost 50 years since its stage debut in London’s West End in 1973 and the release of the Lou Adler produced movie from 1975. It is, of course, a GROUP EXPERIENCE with those inspired zingers going back to the screen, composed by a generation of audience members over the years, being the real entertainment. So, let’s join Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) as they find themselves in the world of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (the incredible Tim Curry), Riff Raff (O’Brien), Magenta (Patricia Quinn), Columbia, a Groupie (Nell Campbell aka Little Nell), Dr. Everett V. Scott, a rival scientist (Jonathan Adams), Eddie, an ex-delivery boy (Meat Loaf) and, finally, The Criminologist, An Expert (Charles Gray).
