Some CLASSICS will never die and this Movie is one fine example. And if you’ve never seen this one, places would have made you blush years ago, but maybe not so today.
But still, this Movie will remain in a League all by itself. Ask your grandparents if they ever saw it. And if they did, they’ll smile and then get ready for some tales. But in the Movie Theaters where this Movie is Playing, the audience will dress akin to how the Characters in the Movie do.
And my, oh, my, this one is a rib-tickler. But a fun watch.
So, pop that Popcorn and grab a drink and sit back and enjoy a rest from Covid!

The story centres on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in the rain near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle or country home is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention. They discover the head of the house is Dr. Frank N. Furter, an apparently mad scientist who actually is an alien transvestite who creates a living muscle man in his laboratory. The couple are seduced separately by the mad scientist and eventually released by the servants who take control.
