1975 brought us one of the most iconic cult films of all time, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

The story centers on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in a storm near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention, hosted by Dr. Frank N. Furter, an alien from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania (played by Tim Curry).

Silliness, singing, dancing, and Meatloaf on a motorcycle all take place over the 1 hour and 38 minutes that the movie consists of. Initially, the film didn't have a great reception, with critics believing it would've been best kept as a live stage show. It was after five months into the film's midnight showings run when the audience started to get involved by shouting lines out during the film, dressing up, and becoming part of the experience.
