This movie does match and surpass "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in manyways. You can tell that Richard O'Brien and the film's producers had abigger budget to work with. The songs are a match to the original (same songwriter, same style...). Visually, a little too heavy on the reds, but thisWAS 1981, after all. This movie will be enjoyed by those who will get theRocky Horror references that are scattered throughout. Too bad BarryBostwick and Susan Sarandon weren't there to provide a little morecontinuity to their characters. Jessica Harper does a great job though, sheappeared in several off-beat movies in the 70s ("Phantom Of The Paradise"and "Suspiria" spring to mind) so playing in a Richard O'Brien movie was nottoo much of a stretch for her it seems. This sequel was, to me, a lot sexierthan RHPS. The original seemed to center on campiness and shock value, it'shere as well, but there is a lot more eye-candy in thissequel.

I'm still waiting for a Richard O'Brien / John Waters musical collaboration.Imagine the possibilities!

I loved Rocky Horror. I thought it was a great film and proves to beone of my favorite musicals. So when I found out that there was asequel, I searched it out... with much difficulty. Apparently the filmwas a huge flop and therefore is extremely rare. (funny, when you thinkabout Rocky Horror, which was originally a huge flop as well, but wasre-released after finding cult status).

I have just watched Shock Treatment twice in a row and I'm proud to sayI love it just as much as Rocky Horror. But be warned, Shock Treatmenthas completely different subject matter (which means no revealingcross-dressing, references to old horror films and no Tim Curry), butsome familiar characters and some very familiar actors appear in a filmthat looks at the brain-washing nature of television.

It wasn't the sequel I expected, but after seeing it twice, I realizeit is the perfect sequel to a perfect film like Rocky Horror.

But the emotion I was filled most with after watching this film wasn'thappiness, it was frustration. I was frustrated that this film isshunned by many, that it never has been released onto DVD and mostprobably never will be. It was depressing to know that probably theonly way I am ever going to view this great film is on a terriblequality full screen VHS cassette.

I'm hoping that this will find higher status eventually and is releasedonto a far more watchable medium. This film proves a satirical look attelevision, specifically in the eighties, but in doing so creates aprophetic masterpiece long before its time.

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!
