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
B.J. Wilson & Mick Grabham were part of the 'band' who recorded the music for the Rocky Horror Picture Show. They were also members of the group Procol Harum famous for their 1967 hit 'Whiter Shade of Pale' (although neither Wilson nor Grabham played on that song as they had not yet joined the band at the time it was recorded.)

When performing the floor show, the position of the backdrop and the white curtain changes. On a wide shot, the curtain and the backdrop lettering appears high above the actors. On a narrow shot, the curtain and lettering appear right above their heads. See more »
A young naive couple experience a modern Frankenstein.
Those who gave this gem a low score - Please! Crawl back in your cardboard life and stay there! This film bubbles with zest, wit, subtle humor, raw humor, strange scenes, great songs and a huge host of memorable characters. Most of the characters are drawn as sharply as if a straight razor...well, not straight...as if a razor had been used. Not intended for the super straight part of our culture, which is why it usually plays at midnight shows, but you'll notice that it's been playing steadily for 30 years now, especially along the American coasts, which is a better record that almost anything else you can think of (excluding Gome With The Wind in Atlanta, a single town). I even took my mother to one of the 15 or so theater viewings I've attended. She thought the dressed up audience was a little strange, but she found out why they were so enthusiastic and quite liked the show. It's just a time slip....
