Brad and Janet have no choice but to seek help from a creepy old mansion. They didn’t expect to find a showcase of the strange and free spirited residents. The strangest of all is the leader of the crazy menagerie. How are Brad and Janet going to escape? That is if they really want to.
Chocked full of music, fun, and crazy, this movie is a wild ride. Known for being a cult hit and enjoyed by millions, this may not exactly be the film for everyone. It will immediately take most out of their comfort zone. I wouldn’t dare go near this movie if you like staying in your comfort zone, since the basic theme of the film is sexuality. The merit of the film is encouraging people to be comfortable and not be afraid of being themselves no matter how normal or strange it may seem to other people.
There are several examples of great acting in this film, but I think the one person people always seem to remember from this film is Mr. Tim Curry. This is probably his breakthrough role and the one he is most famous for. In my honest opinion, had this film been made today, Curry probably would have been nominated for an Academy Award. Sadly, that was just not the case for the time period of the film.
If you are willing to keep an open mind, I think that you just might enjoy this film.
I give this film 3 Buttery Kernals.
Coming Soon: Bubba Ho-Tep
