"I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the 1975 film adaptation of the British rock musical stageplay. Directed by Jim Sharman, this cult classic is a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock 'n' roll, among other things that tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).
Cast members also include Richard O'Brien (one of the film's writers) and rock-n-roller Meat Loaf.
