    For a movie that's mostly a plotless mix of old sci-fi flicks and Bowie-esque gender-bending, Rocky Horror continues to charm. That's due in part to the honest delight we take in the freedoms this movie so cheerfully flaunts.

    "The Rocky Horror PIcture Show" is a terrible example of what happens when you forcefully fuse different genres into one big pot. Nevertheless, the music is great and at least the film earns recognition as the 'godfather' of all cult films mostly due to a true crazy performance by Tim Curry. A fan boy must-watch. Full Review »

    Totally on the money as a representation of dark humour but time has aged this film and there is no denying that it is not scary. Tim Curry is made of the stuff of legends and he is the only bright spark in an otherwise slightly dull experience. Wholly relevant but underwhelming and slightly too niche for my tastes. I am sure this works better as literature or musical. 72/100 Full Review »

    An amazing movie with many themes and messages. From the concept of pleasure to human worth this movie is truly a thought provoking interesting viewing experience. The music and wildness is also a plus! Full Review »
