The Rocky Horror Picture Show
I expect most of you darling readers to have seen this week’s film already, but at the odd chance that some of you haven’t, I thought it would be worth to mention it. This week’s weekend entertainment is no other than the musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).
Newly engaged Brad and Janet are on their way to visit their friend Dr. Everett V. Scott, but unfortunately their car breaks down and, as there is a storm, they are forced to seek help in a nearby castle. And you just know that this is going to be good. The castle is inhabited by Frank- N- Furter, a sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, who is throwing a party to celebrate that he has created a man, with blond hair and a tan, and he invites Brad and Janet to stay for the night and witness the “birth” of his creation. And trust me, psychedelic 70s weirdness ensues.
The stars of this amazing musical include Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O’Brian (who also wrote the script) and Meat Loaf. The music is great, the costumes are revealing, there are oh so many references to old horror- and mystery films and the humor is great. You can tell that they had a lot of fun making this movie.
I strongly advise you to see or re-see it this weekend!
