The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Canon #21 April 8, 2015

This week Devin & Amy are doing the time warp as they discuss their first musical film, Richard O’Brien’s 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Should this film be entered into the canon based upon it being the most successful midnight movie in film history? Or should it be judged as a poorly paced movie that is so bad that the audience had to begin interacting with it just to get through the movie? Would cinema be introduced to Tim Curry otherwise? Tune in to hear about Devin & Amy’s first encounter with this weird, sexually liberating, never ending night — and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!
