You never told me a nifty, new Rocky Horror treat (no tricks!) was just waiting for my greedy little hands.
Now I have it, thanks to The Rocky Horror Treasury (Running Press, $27).
And we sing along.
Forty years after it first hit theaters, The Rocky Horror Picture Show became the definitive cult movie with a dedicated following of fans. The Rocky Horror Picture show is a 1975 British-American film that took inspiration from B-horror and sci-fi films of decades past. Based on The Rocky Horror Show, a 1973 stage musical by Richard O’Brien, the movie was directed by Jim Sharman and starred Tim Curry as the iconic Transylvanian transvestite, Dr. Frank N. Furter. Nice gams!
Featuring behind-the-scenes stories, pull-out mementos, full-color photos and audio clips of the famed soundtrack, The Rocky Horror Treasury is the ultimate interactive tribute to a cult classic. The text is comprised of behind-the-scenes stories and history on the original stage musical, the 1975 film, and the story’s colorful history since then, fully illustrated with photos throughout.
Yep, you can also singalong to music clips from “Science Fiction/Double Feature,” “Dammit Janet,” “Time Warp,” “Sweet Transvestite,” “I’m Going Home,” and more. Also included in the book, penned by Sal Piro who has been president of the Official Rocky Horror Picture Show Fan Club for nore than 35 years, are fun pull-outs, like 5 Rocky Horror temporary tattoos, a 9-inch x 12-inch movie poster, a “Time Warp” dance chart and a party invitation.
No rice needed. Really.
