I watched half of this awful, awful, truly awful sequel to "Rocky Horror Picture Show" the other night. Well, when I say I watched it, I mean we sat through half of it before giving up.

The only saving grace it had was that the music was actually OK, and the girl playing Janet had a really nice singing voice. Barry Humphries was an embarassment.

I thought it was ok. Certainly a lot weirder than Rocky. It isn't really a sequel sequel. Yeah it has a couple of the same character names but it can just be viewed as a standalone film.

Didn't think they could make one worse than the first. [Razz]

Ooooh, I'm gonna catch hell for saying that. Sorry, I hated the original. [Embarrassed]

"Following on from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", this musical is set several years later in Brad and Janet Majors' hometown - which has become a giant TV station;
residents are either participants or viewers. They are married now, but their romance has fallen on the rocks.
Ostensibly to fix their marriage, Brad is imprisoned on the program "Dentonvale" (the local mental hospital) while Janet is conscripted to become a new star.
As Janet is entranced by the high life, she forgets Brad. Who is trying to woo her away?" (IMDb)

Just watched Shock Treatment and it´s just as good as Rocky Horror IMO.
Enter Cliff De Young and lovely Jessica Harper (Suspiria, Phantom of the Paradise) as Brad and Janet, they did a great job!

Loved the rocking tunes, the amazing settings and the whole cast. Recommended!
