    Be prepared to be disappointed. It lacks the cohearancy and the energy of the original. What's more, without the Audience participation which so vitalized the RHPS it just falls completely flat. Just my opinion.
     
  3. yeah i heard bad rewiews too.

    dunno... i think ill get the dvd or something.
    but there's still dr Frankenfurther on it?
    cause i totally dig it!! what kind of continuation of rhps would it be without him?

    Frank isn't in Shock Treatment...the only characters who are that were in Rocky Horror are Brad & Janet...both of which are played by different actors. It does still have Richard OBrien, Patricia Quinn, Charles Gray & Little Nell though :)

    Actually, if I remember right, they aren't Brad and Janet, either. They are the two characters who got married at the beginning of RHPS (Ralph and Betty Hapshack?).

    Dr. Frank N Furter died at the end of RHPS, so to 'revive' him would kind of be a copout. I bought it a few months ago, but I have a 'movie pact', so I haven't seen it yet. The demand isn't as large so it's harder to find, but you should be able to special order it at any movie store. The one song I've heard from it sounds pretty good. Don't watch it with expectations of another rocky. observe it as a seperate entity.

    Shock Treatment was appalling!! There was one good song, but the rest was horrible. I wasn't all that thrilled with the TV themed setting either. It just didn't work for this flick. Brad and Janet are the primary characters, but different actors. Ralph and Betty Hapshat have bigger roles in this movie. The original actors from RHPS are all playing different roles. I gotta say, Little Nell doesn't look bad with long hair. Richard O'Brien still has that presence that I love, but it's not enough to save the flick.

    ive never even heard of this sequel thing! it must be bad. sequels very rarely live up to the 1st one.

    I just watched Shock yesterday. It's actually pretty good, but it's very loosely related to Rocky. It reminds me of Kevin Smith's View Askew series, a couple of the same characters, and the same actors from the first movie playing different people. It's not a sequel really. Or an 'equal' as the advertising called it. It's just another movie by the same people. I liked it, actually. It's not as good as Rocky, but it's all right as a standalone flick. Nell Carter looks gorgeous! It's a fun movie, it won't change your life or anything. You see Charles Gray sing and dance which is worth whatever you pay for it.

    GO see it in the theater...go with someones who has been before. When they sacrifice the virgins before the show accept the fact yer friend i s gonna rat you out, you might be embarrased and that after word you have a good memory and a great story, and you get to bring the virgins next time....

    *edit..I didnt read the first page first, I take back My post.*
     
  14. ive already seen it 6 times in theather and almost 20 in vhs!!

    I don't count seeing it on video. You're missing too much of the spirit of Rocky. There's no audience participation, no virgin auction, no silly people in silly costumes, no doing the Time Warp in the middle of the aisles, and on my VHS copy, one of the somgs is cut out.


    Dream it on video, Be it in the theaters.

    Watching rocky on tv/video is like masturbating..it's fun and will hold you over..but it's nothing compared to the REAL thing!
