Oh my goodness, RHPS is easily, hands down, in my top 3 favourite movies of all time. I first fell in love with it as a child. I was a bit weird, Disney movies didn’t interest me, I was all about musicals.
I can remember watching it for the first time when I was about 6, and cowering in my dads lap when Riff Raff first opens the door and creepily goes “Hellooooo … ?” And I’ve pretty much been obsessed ever since.
Amazingly, an old theatre about an hour where I live, does showings of the film every 3 months or so, with the floor show as well. One of the most fun nights you can ask for, if you’re a Rocky Horror fan! It’s the most fun, kitschy, bizarre movies EVER! I can never get sick of watching it.
There was a sequel made called Shock Treatment - starring SOME of the original cast members, but the story veers off into another dimension completely. That said, I still loved it, there’s some really catchy songs, and funny one-liners, but majority of Rocky fans shunned it, as it didn’t keep with the standard of the original.
Now I’m just counting down to my RHPS themed 21st birthday next year!!
