From the (UK) Daily Mail on the 6th, a feature on the Rocky Horror Picture Show, in “Let’s Do The Time Warp again! Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry reunite with Rocky Horror Picture Show cast for 40 year anniversary of cult comedy-horror musical” (a long and informative title), which begins:
It started as a quirky art-house film that was panned by critics – but grew to be one of the most-loved cult phenomenons of our time.
And cast of the The Rocky Horror Picture Show movie got together for the first time in 25 years to celebrate the 1975 camp classics’ 40th anniversary for a special issue of Entertainment Weekly.
And the stars reminisced about being part of the musical comedy horror classic in an interview with NBC’s Today on Tuesday.
A still from early in the movie:
Camp classic: Dr Frank-N-Furter, played by Tim Curry, greets Susan Sarandon’s Janet and Barry Bostwick’s Brad in The Rocky Horror Picture Show movie, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary
A wonderful show, created by Richard O’Brien, who also plays Riff Raff in the movie (and who, not entirely coincidentally, sees himself as 70% male and 30% female, as transgender or perhaps third sex). A music comedy + horror movie — not the only one, but surely the high point of the genre.
Now a bit on the movie, which will take us (via Tim Curry) to the tv show Criminal Minds, of all places.
