The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Richard O'Brien's brilliantly bizarre story of creation, love, hate, adventure, and, most of all, sex. A young couple stumble upon a Transylvanian house party in this 1975 classic, based on O'Brien's stage musical.

Lost, rain-soaked and in a broken down car, two newlyweds take refuge in an isolated castle belonging to the flamboyant transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Alongside other visitors from the planet Transsexual, Frank-N-Furter unveils his creation, a young man named Rocky Horror, who fears the doctor and rejects his sexual advances. When Frank-N-Furter announces that he is returning to the galaxy Transylvania, Riff Raff the butler and Magenta the maid declare that they have plans of their own.
