The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) Micro Review

Rocky Horror Picture Show is wonderfully weird between the glam and punk rock era Richard O’Brien, who is also the actor
who played the butler had come up with a marvelous idea of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Richard said that during the first stage production the lights had gone out and while the lights were out a flash of lightning went across the sky and lit up the audience Clearly in the middle of the audience he could see no other than Vincent Price He took this as a good omen and the production continued Rocky Horror Picture is known as an ode to B-movies I used to say when you’re acting is just B-movie acting and when you’re singing
it’s you rock n’ roll dreams come true With the success of a stage show they
were picked up by a studio to produce a movie The filming of the movie went very
smoothly since most of the actors were brought over from the theater production
and it took them very few takes Although the previous three years of the theater was successful the debut of the film received poor reviews Richard O’Brien decided to leave the United States and return home feeling a little defeated The Rocky Horror film was removed from most major theaters but were picked up
by smaller theaters who were known for showing more radical movies late at night This was the right audience for Rocky Horror as most of the viewers loved the film and returned night after night Each night there would be new
traditions created that correspond with the movie transforming this movie into
an interactive film Richie O’Brien had no idea about the success that had become or the traditions I had come about from the audience he was quite
pleased to return and see the madness that had been going on in these theaters
this film has truly earned its place in cinema history not only because of the
time effort and passion from the actors and creators but also from the audience
who had taken this film and turned it into something completely new It’s fabulously freaky I remember doing the time warp drinking those moments when the blackness within me and the voice would be calling… LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!

  1. What would you like to see in the next Micro Review? Phantom of the Paradise, or the Marx Brothers movie that never was?

  2. I may have been one of the people lining up to watch this late at night… guilty! Also Marx Brothers πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

  3. It's definitely a rite of passage for nerdy kids in high school, to go to the theater at midnight and play one of the characters in front of the screen.

  4. Yeah, it might have flopped with the critics – but it was the number two movie at the box office behind Jaws. I always figured it flopped, but not so. It just got a critical drubbing.
