Episode 010 – Shock Treatment

Shock Treatment Theatrical Poster

For this episode we talk about, (Oooooooo) Shock Treatment (1981), a sort of not really sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.   We learn what happened to Brad and Janet and it has some similarities to RHPS but don’t go into it expecting it to be like Rocky Horror.  Brad and Janet are pawns in an elaborate plot by a madman who controls everyone in Dentonville through the magic of television, a creepy pitchman and mind control.  It’s a colorful cult classic, packed with music and we’d be remiss not to mention Nell Campbell’s butt.

Standout numbers include Little Black DressBitchin’ in the Kitchen, and Shock Treatment. This also happens to be The Infamous Bill’s favorite soundtrack out of any film that we have viewed to date!

Shock Treatment stars Jessica Harper as Janet Majors,  Cliff De Young as Brad Majors/Farley Flavors and Richard O’Brien as Dr. Cosmo McKinley and was directed by Jim Sharman.
