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).<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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. <br><br>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.
