THE ROCKY HORROR PIC­TURE SHOW

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

ELEVEN, Mon­day, 8.30pm, M ( 1975)

An ode to de­viants and drag queens ev­ery­where, Richard O’Brien’s film adap­ta­tion of his lu­di­crous stage show ( in which he ap­pears as Riff- Raff) re­tains its sheen, but has lost much of its shock power. By lib­er­ally mix­ing end­less homages to ’ 50s horror films, old- time rock ’ n’ roll tunes with a twist and de­lib­er­ately bad act­ing, a bona fide cult clas­sic was born. Big, noisy, campy fun, to be en­joyed with a group of like- minded peo­ple. The cast fea­tures Su­san Saran­don, Barry Bost­wick, Meat Loaf and Tim Curry ( above) who steals the show as Dr Frank- NFurter.
