4 out of 5

This surprisingly witty and wickedly naughty Queen Mother of cult movies is a campy, vampy, kinky musical send-up of old horror flicks. Revealing what happens when strait-laced Brad and Janet get stranded at the weird castle of Frank N Furter (Tim Curry, wringing every ounce of deranged humour from his glam-rock role in a landmark performance), it cleverly satirises Frankenstein, haunted-house mysteries, science-fiction clichés and Carry On sexual identity confusion. The score is justifiably famous - stand-out songs are Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me and Sweet Transvestite - so if you've never seen it, give yourself a treat. If you have, then let's do The Time Warp again!

Plot Summary

Cult musical satire starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. Sweethearts Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves drawn into a bizarre and weird world when their car breaks down during a storm and they are forced to spend the night at a nearby gothic mansion.
