gimme gimme Shock Treatment (1981)

I heard music from this pseudo-sequel to Rocky Horror in about 1981, on the Dr. Demento show (where all great music could be heard).
the good Dr didn't talk too much about the plot of the movie, and as it was presented as a sequel (it does star Brad (a**h*l*) Majors and Janet (sl*t) Weiss) but as such it would sure disappoint fans of Rocky.  however, it's got great music, some would say even better than Rocky.  singing about Denton, Texas, how unusual!
the television satire is rather more pointed today than it was in 1981.  sure predicted some trends!

interesting, Rik Mayall is in this movie!  and nice to see Charles Gray as well.  it's worth a look, that's for sure.

who's idiot idea is it to remake Rocky now?
