Monsters in the Movies, the fantastic book by director John Landis from DK Canada moves on to the next chapter.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) – Jim Sharman

The mad scientist chapter of DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies brings me the always enjoyable, and sing a long to every song, film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. It’s a musical send-up of science fiction and horror films of the 50s and 60s, that also reveled…
