Frankenstein

review by
Mike Haberfelner



Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) just got engaged, and want to tell the good news to their science professor Dr. Scott (Jonathan Adams), but on the way to his home their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, so they take a walk to the next creepy castle they can find to ask for a phone - and walk into a big party thrown by cross-dressing Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry) to celebrate his creation of a man, Rocky (Peter Hinwood, voiced by Trevor White). The party's somewhat interrupted by biker/rocker Eddie (Meat Loaf), a former favourite of Frank N. Furter whom he has since kept in deep freeze, but eventually Frank N. Furter kills him. Later that night of all people Dr. Scott shows up on Frank N. Furter's doorstep looking for his nephen, Eddie, but Frank N. Furter remains evasive and forces everyone to do likewise ... to later serve Eddie for dinner - to the shock of his guests.

Frank N. Furter has Brad and Janet locked up in separate rooms, then sneaks into their respective rooms to seduce both of them. Both Brad and Janet escape their rooms to find a way out, but Janet bumps into Rocky, and the two eventually have sex. This all leds to a big orgy including almost everyone involved, until Frank N. Furter's servants Riff Raff (Richard O'Brien) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn) put an end to it by killing Frank N. Furter and flying the castle home to their home planet.

 

Now in writing, The Rocky Horror Picture Show might not sound like much, but on screen it's pretty much the dream of every horror and B-movie fan come true, being chock-full of allusions to Universal and Hammer horrors, drive-in flicks from the 1950s, all sorts of science fiction clichés and so much more, but presenting the audience with over-sexed versions of all of these, while also driving glamour expected from musicals to absurdity, also but not only by putting an emphasis on cross-dressing and bi-sexual sex. And of course, a very brilliant cast with Tim Curry giving the performance of his life doesn't hurt one bit either.

And of course, there's the music, which is just full of instantly recognizable and memorable songs that even people who're not exactly into the film's musical genre (middle of the road rock) can't help but sing along - all of which makes this film seem remarkably fresh even after it premiering almost 45 years ago.

A must-see movie for sure!
