Shock Treatment is coming!

The River Oaks Theatre will be screening the 35mm print of Shock Treatment on March 18th and 19th at midnight.  There will be a live cast shadowing select numbers during the Saturday night show.  If you would like to be involved, e-mail Mina at SewEccentric@yahoo.com for details.

What is Shock Treatment?  It's not exactly a sequel to Rocky Horror, but it does have Brad and Janet. Most people agree the music (by Richard O'Brien) is every bit as good, but the plot is a little meandering.

If you feel disappointed, keep in mind that this film was on the tails of the Screen Actors Guild strike in 1979 that froze production funds.  Locations were nixed and the budget was slashed.  Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon all turned down roles, but you'll see Richard O'Brien, Patricia Quinn, Little Nell and Charles Gray.
