A night with storm, a newly-wed couple that gets a broken tyre in the middle of nowhere, a tower that is hiding the most (literally) out-of-the-blue residents, a space scientist dressed in leather and garters ready to bring to the world the absolute male, a euphoric and non-stop playful celebration of madness, hedonism, pansexuality and flattening of any sort of seriousness.
An adaptation of the same-titled rock musical from the theatrical stage to the silver screen, «Rocky Horror Picture Show» unites an indulging homage to the fantasy and horror b movies of the 50s to the rock'n'roll freedom of the seventies in an incredibly kinky and absolving queer combination for open-minded viewers, unrepentant party animals and sworn enemies of any sort of puritanism, accompanied by one of the most beautiful soundtracks ever written.
A film-phenomenon, with the characterisation as a top cult movie in the history of cinema being worthily won and millions of viewers having transformed the watching of the film over the years into a frenetic and adoring ritual of mass participation, Jim Sharman's legendary music-dance extravaganza is hosted by the Festival at an anniversary screening for the 45 years from its first circulation at the movie theaters, in the summer of 1975, for those who want to watch it for the first or the … fiftieth time. Let’s do the time warp again! Loukas Katsikas
