The second movie I decided to watch was Rocky Horror Picture Show. I have a lot of love for this movie actually. I had initally wanted to do this as the Halloween special but the DVD had somehow vanished from its box. I won’t give up on the search though, but when I get back. This is a big Halloween theatrical thing here in Montreal. I’m pretty sure other cities do it too. However, I have never gone to any of those shows.
The story is quite simple here. Brad and Janet are recently engaged and decide to pay Dr. Everett Scott a visit to tell him the news. On that dark and stormy night,a flat tire leads them to a castle to ask for help. You already knows a bad idea when you see the ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!! sign at the gate. Still they decide to give it a shot and end up at the castle and meet the odd characters that reside there. We have Riffraff, Magenta, Columbia and the master of the house, Frank n Furter. It is there they are dragged into a whirlwind of events from the creation of Rocky himself that leads to some other events. Let’s just say that this movie gets to be peculiar and very original.
I think it’s exactly the originality of this movie and how it is so unique that I love it so much. I love the catchy music and the characters are really fun to watch. Tim Curry doing the whole transsexual transvestite thing is amazing. I love Susan Sarandon as an actress and she pulls thing movie off rather well. Although I think this movie really attracts a specific crowd and some people will just consider this as a freak show party, I don’t know. I’ve never really discussed this movie much with other people except my boyfriend and he just finds this movie simply odd and he doesn’t understand why I love it that much.
I would love to hear what you think about. Have you seen it? Do you like it? If you did or didn’t, what made you love or hate it?
