A camp classic tailor-made for Halloween, The Rocky Horror Picture Show opens with the newly, ecstatically betrothed Brad and Janet, who get lost in the rain and seek shelter at the creepy castle of Dr. Frank-n-Furter. The good doctor is a transsexual, holding an annual party of guests from a similarly-themed planet, and about to spring his new creation, Rocky Horror on the world. Still, he has time to come on to both Brad and Janet, Janet gets it on with Rocky Horror, and the guests engage in all sorts of kinky fun that includes a Sonic Transducer and other bits of weird science. Throughout, catchy tunes, simple and comic dances and direct-to-camera instructions from the performers encourage audience participation on an specially entertaining scale.
