The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the 1975 film adaptation of the British musical stageplay, The Rocky Horror Show, written by New Zealander Richard O'Brien. The film is a parody of science fiction and B-movie horror films. Director Jim Sharman collaborated on the screenplay with Richard O'Brien, who wrote both the book and lyrics for the stage. The film introduces Tim Curry and features Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Kings Road production presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1973. In its day it was a highly provocative, though comedic, portrayal of gay, transgender culture, a symbol of LGBT themes, as well as for underground sexual quirks.

Still in limited release 35 years after its premiere, it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theatres. Rocky Horror is the first film from a major Hollywood studio to be in the midnight movie market. The motion picture has a large international following and is one of the most well known and financially successful midnight movies of all time. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".



movie trailer


and a scene from the musical


my point of view
Arrow i love it.. saw the movie couple of times and the musical twice.. its so great.. funny and so controversial. because as audience you supposed to do everything at the right time.. so dance.. throw toiletpaper... splash water.. yes you will become wet in the musical.. so most of the diehards have raincoats on.. at the right moments..
its an very interactive musical..
if you have a chance.. go see it.. or at least watch the movie...
