“For a movie that's mostly a plotless mix of old sci-fi flicks and Bowie-esque gender-bending, Rocky Horror continues to charm. That's due in part to the honest delight we take in the freedoms this movie so cheerfully flaunts.”
   Ty Burr, Entertainment Weekly

“The powerhouse of the film is Tim Curry's cross-dressing alien, Frank N. Furter, who would never reach these kinds of gloriously demented heights again.”
   Adam Smith, Empire

“The material inspires affection, given its knowing pastiche of everything from Universal horrors to '50s grade-Z sci-fi, and a shamelessly hedonistic, fiercely independent sensibility that must have seemed a welcome relief from the mainstream bombast of other '70s musicals.”
   Trevor Johnston, Time Out London

    How can you describe Rocky Horror? Ingenious songs and music? Hugely likeable and amusing characters? Brilliant acting? I think it’s a combination of them all. Tim Curry is fantastic in this part. His voice is superb, his facial expressions are hilarious and the sheer perfection of his lipstick application is something to behold.
    The music in this film is not only ingenious but massively catchy. I love how it’s got a rock undertone and unlike Grease (dare I say it!) it’s not cheesy. While the sets aren’t stunning, that doesn’t matter. Rocky captures something else. I guess that’s what makes it so special, it’s impossible to know what makes grown men dress in drag to go to the theatre to see this 25 year on, but Rocky manages it effortlessly.
