Reviewed byANewLeafVote: 10/10/10

After afew years since my last comment on this movie things havechanged. The explosion of reality television on TV now makes thecommentary on this movie a lot more relevant then when it was originallyreleased. This movie looks not only at the "actors" of this form ofentertainment but also the audience and even the producers. A lot of thepeople who watch this movie are seeing it in a monotone 2 dimensionalway, when this movie has a lot more depth then can be seen with such aview.

This movie still deserves the 9/10 I gave it 2 years ago, it probablydeserves 10. The style with which O'Brien shows the consumer/TV culturethat was forming at the time this movie was made still works eventoday. This movie is a satire, it is not a spoof like the RHPS was, itis not a sequel, and it cannot be watched in the same manner. It worksvery very well as a satire on it's topic though using over the topimagery, effective musical numbers, and very over the topcharacterization.

It grows on you, and the songs are greatReviewed bynopuppy-1Vote: 8/10

Those of us weaned on "Rocky Horror" are in for a shock with this one. The Brad and Janet of "Shock Treatment" are not the wonders of "Rocky Horror." But give it a chance, this is one that grows in its impact with repeated viewings. One off-putting (but right on) element is the set design, which is really pretty ugly, but why shouldn't it be? It's all set in a television studio! The plot is murky to begin with, and the denouement isn't all it could be, but it does make sense (after you watch it twice), and the songs are almost up to RHPS standards, with winners like "We're Gonna Do It Anyhow," "Looking for Trade," and the title number. A great cast, too, with Jessica Harper rocking up a storm, Patricia Quinn finally getting some real dialogue (and delivering it marvelously), Cliff de Young in a dual role (he's a bit weak, but may have been directed that way), Ruby Wax, Rick Mayall pre-"Young Ones," at least one RHPS bit player upped to a major role (Jeremy Newson as Ralph Hapschatt), and Barry Humphries as "blind" Bert Schnick, before he went into permanent drag as Dame Edna.

This is due out on DVD next month, and I'm ready to spring for it. If you like off-kilter satire with rockin' numbers, you might like this too.

An accident!Reviewed bybeatlesgirl24Vote: 7/10

Shock Treatment was an accident. There, now it`s out. While Richard O`Brien DID plan a follow up to Rocky Horror (which actualy bombed in the box office but soon got itself a cult following) this was not what he had in mind. We won`t go into his original idea, but in 1980-1981 there was a SAG strike, thus causing problems for O`Brien and crew. Also, they had numerous budget cuts. Sarandon requested a considerable amount of money to return which the budget couldn`t allow, Bostwick was uninterested and Curry felt he could not handle an American accent. So at the last minute, this is what came out of it. And Richard himself will tell you it is not a sequel, not a prequel but an equal to Rocky. I do agree that it doesn`t match RHPS as a film but it`s delightful none the less. I think you just need to sit down and watch it once more before you pass judgement. Don`t look at it as the RHPS sequel, just look at it as a film. And enjoy.
