Science Fiction/Double Feature
at a deadly pace
it came from outer space
and this is how the message ran..
every halloween it seems quite fitting to find the cult classic rocky horror picture show gracing your cable station repeatedly during the countdown towards the haunted holiday. by blending science fiction into sexuality, bewilderment was the kind of word to use when the rocky horror picture show musical world of flamboyant and transsexual fantasies truly came to their provocative reality.
back in 1973, richard o’brien wrote the british storyline and shared the rocky horror picture show as a theatrical broadway experience. however, after a few years of fast success, a movie executive finally purchased the screenplay and created it into the 1975 famous movie that marked the introduction of then new-coming actors tim curry, susan sarandon, meatloaf and barry bostwick.
with a bit of a mind flip
you’re into the time slip
and nothing can ever be the same
you’re spaced out on sensation
like you’re under sedation
let’s do the time warp again!
although its important to see the movie and gain an idea of what the crazy mayhem is all about, the most ideal situation to understand the rocky horror picture show in all its glory is to actually attend one of its local theatrical showings as there’s nothing quite like it. based in mostly every city, fans come out at midnight decorated in full cast apparel of drag, lingerie, fishnets, red lipstick, maid costumes and every type of disguise to resemble their favorite characters from the film.
known not to be made for the faint of heart or those with shy reservations, attendees are expected to dress provocatively, scream obscenities and throw things at people. according to many venues who share this exhilarating and interactive experience, there is a whole list of props and etiquette to be brought to each excursion. in some places not all theatres are alike and rules are different for each showing, but nonetheless, the anticipating audience, even the rocky horror picture show virgins, truly all seem to know how to participate and enjoy.
