It's the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when their car halts in the rain. They both look for contact, only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Especially when a large group of Transylvanians dance to the 'Time Warp', Dr. Frank-N-Furter builds his own man and a whole host of participation for the audience to enjoy. Written by
A gem of a musical that started as a smash play in London, then scored a phenomenal success on the midnight "cult movie" circuit
A middle-class young couple, motoring in the country on their wedding night, have car trouble in front of a huge mansion Wanting to use the phone, the two approach the house and go in just as its master, Dr. Frank N. Furter, is leading an experiment His newly made creature, the body-beautiful Rocky, is ready to be unveiled, and the innocent couple is caught up in this strange household filled with the doctor's campy, exotically dressed admirers Both the wife and the husband are seduced by this garter-belted "scientist."
The film's first half is fast and funny, with virtually every song a memorable one But the second half tries to do too much and the film loses much of its potency Nevertheless, the adorable characters make this a delightful entertainment
