Watch: The Rocky Horror Picture Show 1975 123movies, Full Movie Online – On a wild and rain-swept late-November evening, somewhere at an empty stretch of road outside Ohio’s merry Denton, blissfully-affianced, prudish, boringly-innocent young pair Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) find themselves stranded on their way to visit an ex-tutor. Instead, the couple will inadvertently unearth the cross-dressing Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Tim Curry’s) spooky lair of inexhaustible oddities, just in time to partake in the out-of-this-world mad scientist’s proud unveiling of his latest, delightfully extravagant, most daring creation: the ultimate male and the perfect sex symbol: the flaxen-haired Rocky Horror (Peter Hinwood). But, little by little, as the effervescent transgressive force gobbles up whole the unsuspecting visitors of the night, Brad and Janet slowly begin to embrace the potent fascinations of seduction, while an idolized Rocky roams free in the mansion. Who can interrupt man’s union with the absolute pleasure?.
Plot: Sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named ‘Rockv’.

Moving on from the riotous cult stage show which was born in a small studio theatre in the early 70s, this movie version is a well-cast, outrageous romp showcasing the absurdity and sci-fi obsession of Richard O’Brien’s inventive musical.
The small cast – the wonderful Tim Curry as Frank ‘n Furter (the sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania’); Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon as the odd science students Brad and Janet; Patricia Quinn as Magenta (‘a domestic’); Little Nell as Columbia (‘a groupie’), Jonathan Adams as Dr Scott; Meat Loaf as Eddie; Richard O’Brien himself as the handyman Riff Raff; Peter Hinwood as the muscle man Rocky, created by Frank in a spoof on Frankenstein; and Charles Gray having a great time as the Criminologist – are all really good, and the songs are terrific, from the madness of ‘The Timewarp’ and ‘Sweet Transvestite’, to the ethereal ‘There’s a Light’ and ‘I’m Going Home’, by way of the rocky ‘Whatever Happened To Saturday Night?’ and the film-reference heavy ‘Science Fiction Double Feature’.
Great, great fun and the floor show sequence in particular, showcasing Frank’s obsession with Fay Wray and the RKO cheapies, is exceptional, with its statues in basques and its huge swimming pool. Trash, yes, but classy trash, and most enjoyable.
A time(warp)less classic!
Best cult movie ever!
I have this on VHS, and it is one of my all time guilty pleasures. It has a great cast, a catchy music score and unforgettable satire on monster movies, like Frankenstein. If you haven’t seen it already, give yourself a treat! I will warn you though, it is extremely silly at times, but that is all part of the fun. And I seriously don’t care whether it’s poorly made or not and I don’t think so personally, all that matters is that it’s entertaining, and that is what exactly RHPS is. The cast is wonderful. Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick do a great job as Brad and Janet, although I didn’t know they could sing, which really surprised me. Richard O’Brien is solid as Riff Raff and he also wrote the songs. Also solid are Patricia Quinn and Peter Hinwood. The best performance, however, comes from Hollywood’s most underrated actor, Tim Curry, who I must say looks hot in fishnets and heels. He has a great singing voice, that is always overlooked. FrankNFurter is a landmark performance, but Tim Curry has also done other great films such as Clue, Legend,Muppets Treasure Island, Blue Money and It. (which has his career-best performance by a mile.) Voiceovers include Captain Hook, Slagar, Hexxus, Drake, Forte, Von Talon and the Mouse King. The songs are so catchy, especially “Time Warp” and “Sweet transvestite” that I actually wanted to dance to the music, but I am a novice at dancing. The complaint about this movie, which is undoubtedly the best cult movie ever, no matter how many times it’s been imitated, is the song “Science fiction” which is not in the same league as the more uplifting songs. Still I am happy, and lets do the time warp again! 9.5/10. Bethany Cox.
A gem of a musical that started as a smash play in London, then scored a phenomenal success on the midnight “cult movie” circuit
A middle-class young couple, motoring in the country on their wedding night, have car trouble in front of a huge mansion Wanting to use the phone, the two approach the house and go in just as its master, Dr. Frank N. Furter, is leading an experiment His newly made creature, the body-beautiful Rocky, is ready to be unveiled, and the innocent couple is caught up in this strange household filled with the doctor’s campy, exotically dressed admirers Both the wife and the husband are seduced by this garter-belted “scientist.”
The film’s first half is fast and funny, with virtually every song a memorable one But the second half tries to do too much and the film loses much of its potency Nevertheless, the adorable characters make this a delightful entertainment
