"The Rocky Horror Picture Show," directed by Jim Sharman, and originally released in the United States 1975, is “a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas, [starring] Tim Curry as the kinky yet endearing 'transsexual from Transylvania.'" It’s a horror movie, a comedy, and a very poignant commentary on sexual liberation in society. And traditionally, it’s screened in theaters across the country around Halloween with midnight showings.
