Genre Grandeur – Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) – Tranquil Dreams

This month’s Genre Grandeur highlights movies of the 70s. While I love some franchises that had its start in the 70s, the movie I watch again and again all the time and always keeps its weird charm is The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Remember to head on over and check out my review on this awesome musical and see what other choices were chosen by others.

Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)


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?
