Our Score
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!


A young strait-laced couple stranded by a storm take shelter in an eerie castle, where they are enticed into the weird world of a menagerie of debauched characters - presided over by a mad sex-crazed transvestite scientist - and undergo a startling transformation as they let go of their inhibitions. Cult musical, with Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and the show's creator Richard O'Brien.
