Synopsis: Let’s do the time warp again! A man (Brad) and woman (Janet) get engaged after their friends wedding. On a road trip to visit an old professor (Dr. Scott), their car breaks down in front of a creepy old house which is holding a party. Looking to use the phone, Brad and Janet get pulled into a world of transvestites, lasers, and risky business. Watch as this musical unfolds a story about a mad scientist and his creation. But beware there is a bit of nudity.

All: You bring your knees in tight! But it’s the pelvic thrust / That really drives you insane / Let’s do the time warp again!

Frank: Oh, I just love success!
Riff Raff: He’s a credit to your genius, Master.
Frank: Yes!

Frank: OK? OK? I think we can do better than that! Well Brad and Janet, what do you think of him?
Janet: Well, I don’t like men with too many muscles.
Frank: I didn’t make him for you!… He carries the Charles Atlas seal of approval.

Fun Fact: On October 26, 2010 Glee had their own version of Rocky Horror calling it “The Rocky Horror Glee Show.”

Final Thoughts: I love this risky musical! The songs are catchy and the characters memorable. The (very) brief nudity can be missed with a blink and I think I never knew it was there until I was about 16. I watched this movie on VH1 when I was about 10 and most of the risky scenes (Silhouettes sex scene especially) were cut out. It is a cult classic that will withstand the tests of time.

Have you seen this movie? Give us your thoughts!

Have a Happy Saturday!
