frogpondgirl writes about The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Richard O'Brien


Film: The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Creator: Richard O'brian

Let's do the timewarp again

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

The Rocky Horror picture show should be seen by any science fiction fan, its a lot of fun to attend. There is no other performance like it where people not only know the words, but add new lines to make jokes out of the next lines uttered by the actors. Its a riot.

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

My local theatre did a version - it sold out instantly and people soon were joining in. It was in the late 70's and I was about 15.

Recollection and revelations

Discovered it via the local theatre performance - saw it twice as I thought the first time must have been some kind of audience riot - it was even better the second time.

Before this...

Dr Who

No more to tell on this one

After This


just hearing the sound of the UFO still makes me nervous
