ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
In The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) are a newly-engaged couple out on a drive one night, when their car suddenly breaks down in front of a castle full of strange people attending something called the “Annual Transylvania Convention”. The host of the event, Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry), welcomes them to the event, and shows them to separate bedrooms.
What follows afterwards is a bizarre comedy of events as Dr. Frank variously brings a Frankenstein-like creation to life, deceptively challenges the sexuality of both Brad and Janet, murders one of his servants, and generally creates mayhem. Janet also becomes intimate with the monster, known as Rocky, bringing upon them the ire of both Frank and Brad.
In an unlikely transpiring of events, Brad and Janet’s high school science teacher appears, looking for his nephew, who was the one murdered by Frank, and all are treated to a vast dinner banquet featuring dishes of the murdered boy’s body. This results in a climax of Frank using a futuristic device to force all of the guests to take part in a large-scale cabaret show, finally interrupted by two of Frank’s friends, Riff Raff and Magenta, who then reveal that the Transylvanians are in fact from another planet. They slay Frank, and release Brad, Janet and the teacher outside, before taking off in their castle-cum-starship back to their homeworld.
