I had heard a lot of bad things about this "sequel" to "The Rocky HorrorPicture Show", and I can see how people expecting a return to the sexualhi-jinx of that classic would be disappointed. I found this to be great in acompletely different way. Save for a few RHPS character and location names,this is pretty much unrelated to that flick. This stands on it'sownas an excellent musical-comedy with great songs and characters.

"Shock Treatment" takes place entirely in the television station of DTV, alocal TV station that probes into the lives of its town's citizens. Brad andJanet (who act differently and are played by different actors than in RHPS)discuss their marital strife and appear on "Marriage Maze". Brad is found tobe in need of help, so he's shipped off to "Dentonvale", the channel'sbizarre medical show, while Janet is groomed to be the newstarof "Denton Dossier", a show that tells people how great Denton is.Meanwhile, nefarious fast food mogul Farley Flavors is conspiring to takeover the town and Janet with his latest show, "Farley Flavor's FaithFactory".

Jessica Campbell (who has worked with Dario Argento AND Woody Allen) issuperb as Janet, and Cliff De Young plays Brad and Farley so excellentlyit's hard to tell it's the same actor (he even has a duet with himself!).The rest of the cast is populated with British comedians (Ruby Wax, BarryHumphries, and "The Young Ones"' Rik Mayal, who should have had a biggerpart) and RHPS vets including Patricia Quinn, Little Nell, Charles Grey(also a former Blofeld!), and composer Richard O'Brian.

O'Brian's songs are fantastic and some exceed the quality of tunes in thebetter known "Rocky Horror". Clever lyrics and catchy tunes abound inclassics like "Bitchin' in the Kitchen", "Little Black Dress", and thehaunting "Lullaby". The choreography is great too, like the briefmirror-dance that accompanies "Look What I Did To My Id".

"Shock Treatmet" gets T-E-N, that's ten out of ten!

Ah, "Shock Treatment"-- a witty, campy, colorful movie bursting withcheeky innuendo and amazing songs (one line from "Duel Duet": "You're adead-end, deadbeat, nowhere mister with a kisser like a Mississippialligator's sister").

First of all, you have to approach "Shock Treatment" as a sequel to"The Rocky Horror Picture Show." While it doesn't contain the samelevel of raunchy cheese (or the aliens, or the transvestites, or thesex gags... mostly), it follows the married life of Brad and JanetMajors... who are now on the rocks (no pun intended) after years ofmarital boredom. This is because Brad is the only person in the town ofDenton who doesn't jump for joy watching the town's mind-numbing TVstation, which is ruled by a greedy corporate sleaze master with an oldconnection to Brad and Janet.

So eventually, a phony TV host (Barry Humphries, aka Dame Edna) and hisquack-psych-doctor cohorts (Richard O'Brien and Patricia Quinn, whoplayed Riff Raff and Magenta in RHPS) take Brad a hostage in theirpsychiatric facility/soap opera set so that station sponsor FarleyFlavors can turn Janet into the next big DTV star.

A few cast members return in different roles (Charles Gray, NellCampbell, and some of the Transylvanians, for example), with JeremyNewson coming back as Ralph Hapschatt. Generally, people dislike thismovie, but I love it. And you know why? It's rock and roll. It'sobscure. And it's just too much of a riot to pass up.

Shock Treatment is an extremely strange movie, the plot is all over theplace, the songs are weird and the confusion factor for the viewer ishigh.But Shock Treatment is a good movie.Forget everything about RHPS, there are no singing tranvestites or Meat Loafgetting hacked to bits with an axe, Shock Treatment is verydifferent.It is a funny satire about how television has become an obsession. It's alsoabout Brad and Janet Majors, who become contestants on a show calledMarriage Maze and Brad is committed into a mental asylum, placedconvieniently inside the TV studio.It's funny to see most of the cast return for a great big musical full ofmemorable songs.But a warning to the gay community, one song contains the lyrics.."Faggotsare maggots-thank god I'm a man!"
