It's possibly one of the most iconic cult films in cinema history, with Tim Curry having successfully forced viewers of all genders to seriously question their sexuality. It doesn't look like that legacy is going to change anytime soon either with the latest cast announcement. 'I am so excited to be a part of #RockHorror legacy', the 'Orange Is The New Black' star told her followers on Twitter, adding the adorable hashtag #DontDreamItBeIt in reference to the refrain from the original 1975 movie.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Clips


Brad and Janet are a young, innocent couple who find themselves stranded in a storm in the middle of nowhere. They come across an eerie castle where they decide to go and ask for a phone, but are instead greeted by some unusual looking staff, a large party of eccentrically dressed guests and a formidable host wearing women's lingerie named Dr. Frank N. Furter. He's not just any transvestite, however, Frank is a pioneering scientist who has created a human life named Rocky, but he's also the most dangerous and insane man they could've come across - prone to jealous rages and unwilling to treat anyone like anything other than his playthings. When the couple are forced to spend the night, it's all they can do to resist the seductive charms of their host, and avoid running into his sadistic servants.

"He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour."

Burke & Hare Review


OK
You can see what Landis was trying to do here: recapture the funny-scary tone of one of his biggest hits, 1981's An American Werewolf in London. But the mix of comedy and grisliness in this comical take on a true story is off the mark.

In 1828 Edinburgh, friends William Burke (Pegg) and William Hare (Serkis) realise they can make good money supplying cadavers to world-class surgeon Dr Knox (Wilkinson). But when they can't find a dead body, they kill someone instead. Hare's wife (Hynes) finds out and wants in on it, but Burke can't tell his aspiring actress girlfriend (Fisher) how he makes his living. Meanwhile, Knox is battling a rival surgeon (Curry) for the King's seal. And the local militia captain (Corbett) is closing in.

The Cat Returns Review


Good
This rather simplistic entry into the feel-good anime genre comes from Kiroyuki Morita (last seen animating the raunchy Perfect Blue but also responsible for working on the kind-hearted Kiki's Delivery Service). The Cat Returns is Morita's first outing as director, and it's a fair, if ultimately unrealized experience.

The story involves young Haru (voiced for the States by Anne Hathaway), who rescues a helpless cat from an oncoming truck, only to find herself in the debt of a feline kingdom she formerly didn't know existed. Haru is awakened one night by a bizarre procession on her street: It's the king of the cats (Tim Curry), bearing gifts. Before she knows it, she's whisked into the world of the cats, where she is transformed into a half-cat/half-person, and is told she will be marrying the cat she saved, who turns out to be the cat prince.
