This is my ALL TIME favourite Cult/B-Movie. Seriously. This movie is a classic. While the audience participation of Rocky Horror is an unbeatable experience, I actually think on its own merits this is even better than Rocky Horror. I just wish that my husband didn't wait so long to watch this with me, he said that the cover reminded him of Divine. I don't know why, Susan Tyrell is an actual woman and really isn't that ugly even if she's a little creepy looking. I finally got him to watch it when I said it had Minnie the Moocher in it. His love for that song is probably equal to Danny Elfman, Cab Calloway is his favourite. Naturally, he loved it.
This movie always manages to cure depression for me. If I'm in a bad mood or depressed, I pop this baby in and laugh my ass off. I actually have hopes that the sequel will be decent, I know sequels to cult movies are usually a bad idea (See: Shock Treatment) but I think Richard Elfman can pull it off, plus it'll be fun to see the expanded Elfman clan in it, supposedly Jenna's gunna show up in it.
It's just a shame that Herve died and won't appear in #2, but that shouldn't ruin it.
