"A wholesome, American couple, Brad and Janet, are stranded one lonely night in a country lane. Seeing a light in the window they call to ask for help but find themselves at the temporary residence of Frank-n-Furter, an itinerant intergalactic transsextual, attended by a hunchback and assorted nymphos. Frank has created Rocky Horror -- Richard O'Brien's gloss on the legend of Frankenstein - who carries the 'Charles Atlas seal of approval'. The plot becomes increasingly frenetic with the appearance of Eddie, an old rocker and earlier creation of Frank's; and Frank's seduction of Janet (whilst passing himself off as Brad) and then his seduction of Brad (whilst passing himself as Janet). Dr Evrett Scott arrives in his wheelchair to save the day but Frank's powers are too great for him. However, the servants turn nasty, kill Frank and Rocky, and save the goodies from the awful fate of being transformed into a chorus line in suspenders and high heels." -- Back cover
