Released in 1975, and based on the stage production of the same name, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the most colourful, imaginative, and downright bonkers musicals of all time. The film – directed by Jim Sharman – is a parody of sci-fi and horror B-movies; stars Tim Curry, Richard O’Brien, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and Charles Gray; and tells the story of a young couple who are seduced by a mad scientist.
