It's no match for THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, but it has its own cult vibe.
The creative team behind The Rocky Horror Picture Show reunite to create what is not so much a sequel but an "alternate universe" spin on the previous film's innocent heroes, Brad & Janet. If Rocky Horror trapped the young lovers in a the clichés of sci-fi movies, here they find themselves starring in the even more bizarre (and eerily prophetic) world of reality television, manipulated by a megalomaniacal network president hungry for more than ratings. Rocky Horror stars Richard O'Brien, Patricia Quinn and Nell Campbell return, with Cliff De Young and Jessica Harper as Brad & Janet, and appearances by Barry "Dame Edna" Humphries and U.K. comedians Rik Mayall and Ruby Wax.
