What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 cult classic movie in which two square sweethearts spend the night in the castle of a transvestite scientist. This movie is based upon complex adult themes of sexuality and personal freedoms/lifestyles. Dr. Frank N. Furter is played up as an outlandish, sexually-open character. There is a very suggestive scene of Frank N. Furter seducing the couple and another sex scene between Janet and the beefcake Rocky. While there is no direct nudity, the film is very provocative, right down to the song lyrics. Expect frequent sexual innuendo, implying erections, sexual desire, and group sex. "Dammit" and "goddammit" are heard. Violence includes a dead body in a glass table, characters killed by lasers, and the implication that a man was killed with a pickax. Comedic pratfall violence includes a male character kicked in the crotch and a female character playfully whipped. Mature teens with an understanding of sexuality and individuality are the best audience.
