This is no ordinary party, no ordinary night. This is the unveiling of the doctor's latest creation: Rocky Horror, a man-made Adonis that will give absolute pleasure. Over the course of the night, Frank seduces both Brad and Janet, Janet and Rocky become biblically involved, and Dr. Everett Von Scott arrives looking for his nephew Eddie (whom Frank killed earlier in this film). This is an exceedingly grand visual and musical camp satire of the golden days of the B-movie horror and science-fiction genres. Projected along with a musical soundtrack to give audience participation a new meaning in dimension, time and space, this shall be a night that both Brad and Janet will remember for a very long time in the sexually kinky, rock 'n roll, rock-opera world of a g

. . .for a very long time.

I have never been a quitter.

To leave office before my term

Gosh, that's the third motorcyclist

They sure do take their lives

in their hands.

Yes, Janet. Life's pretty cheap

to that type.

What's the matter, Brad, darling?

We took the wrong fork

a few miles back.


Where did that motorcyclist come from?

I guess we'll just have to turn back.

What was that bang?

We must have a blowout.

Damn it! I knew I should've gotten

that spare tire fixed.

You stay here and I'll go for help.

We're in the middle of nowhere.

Didn't we pass a castle

a few miles back?

Maybe they have a telephone

I could use.

I'm going too.

-Both of us don't need to get wet.

-I'm coming with you.

Besides, the owner of that phone

might be a beautiful woman. . .

. . .and you might never

come back again.
