In the typical American town of Denton, USA, Brad and Janet Majors (two ordinary, healthy kids) find themselves at the mercy of television & fast-food magnate Farley Flavors.
Using the game show Marriage Maze, hosted by blind ex-Nazi chef Bert Schnick, Farley gets Brad committed into the care of Cosmo McKinley (Richard O'Brien) and his sister and "colleague" Nation (Patricia Quinn), two over-zealous television shrinks, in an attempt to have Janet for himself.
Farley and his pawns plot to make Janet into a "sensation", crowning her as the "first of, we hope, many Miss Mental Healths!"
A sick and wonderful satire of television, mental health and of course, America, Shock Treament is virtually unknown compared to Richard O'Brien's 1975 sensation The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
It's a perverse, campy and hilarious cult classic with one of the best soundtracks ever produced...
...It's a sequel. It's not a sequel.
