So yesterday, I get off work, smoke one, sit down to watch TV and see from the guide its about to come on HBO in about 3 minutes. I thought, you know what? **** it, Im high, I aint got **** to do. Im going to see what this is about. As stated before Ive been hearing about it for decades so I somewhat knew what to expect.
For those who dont know. Its about a couple that gets a flat in the woods on rainy night. Goes to castle for help and they walk in on a freak party hosted by a transexual mad scientist, that turns out to be an alien.
That **** was pretty entertaining. I can totally see how its a cult classic. Wildly before its time. Its just so outrageous. I could only imagine how it was recieved in 1975. When Tim Curry first came out. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Is Tim Curry actually gay? The reason I ask is because you can tell he had a ball playing that role. Theres no doubt in my mind that smerk he had was 100% genuine. I always enjoy seeing that in movies.
Other funny things:
-The extremely cheesy acting by the boyfriend
-The bedroom scenes. That mind ****!
- At the dinner table, the boyfriend is looking all distraught and at this point the gf doesnt give a **** anymore and is just enjoying the songs.
- The random Meatloaf scene that I still dont get. Was he in the freezer? What was that? How did he get a motorcycle from? What? I dont even..
-When finish the first song, and Brads says "Hello" and they all get up like nothing happened.
On the cool. I know this is blasphemy for fans and people just hate remakes in general, but I could totally see this remade like an Eli Roth film. Especially, with all this newfound stance on sexuality in society. Just play up to the horror part a little more(I get the psychological horror of it, but that would be considered tame today). It be hard to top Tim Curry doe.
7/10 would watch again. My co worker told me about the audience lines. Ima check that out at watch it again. "Discribe his balls!"
And for the kiddos keeping score at home, my heterosexuality is still intact.
