As people have said, this film got a horribly bad rap, and made verylittlemoney. The reason, as people have also said, is that it was expected to bein the same vein as RHPS, which it simply was not. Sure, it had RichardO'Brien's trademark musical style and whimsy, but it wasn't the campykitschpeople were expecting. It was, in fact, an intellectual movie with aseriousmessage, a brilliant satire of life in the late 20th century. O'Brientakesjabs at the hallmarks of the decline of modern Western civilisation;conformity, machismo, brainwashing, and the absurdity of the &quot;AmericanDream&quot;.<br><br>The plot can be a little hard to discern on the first viewing, but, aswithmany great intellectual films, more nuances of what O'Brien is trying tosayare picked up with each subsequent viewing. The film is certainly surreal,to say the least; and I would suspect psychedelics were somehow involvedinthe writing of the script. Denton, the picaresque happy U.S. everytown, isactually just a television studio; and all the residents are characters ontelevision shows or are in the audience. Enter Brad and Janet, who, afterexperiencing the &quot;horrors&quot; of RHPS, are having marital difficulties. Thisworks perfectly into the plan of a mysterious fast food magnate, whointendsto steal Janet away from her husband and use her to promote his business.Heconspires to have Brad locked up in the local mental hospital/soap opera,while promoting Janet as a new bombshell sensation, and taking the wholetown under his thumb.<br><br>In short, if you're looking for more of RHPS, you will be sorelydisappointed. But if you want a thought-provoking yet whimsical,tongue-in-cheek attack on all that is mind-numbing and soul crushing inourmodern world, definately check this film out. Jonathan Swift would beproud.

I had heard a lot of bad things about this &quot;sequel&quot; to &quot;The Rocky HorrorPicture Show&quot;, 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.<br><br>&quot;Shock Treatment&quot; 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 &quot;Marriage Maze&quot;. Brad is found tobe in need of help, so he's shipped off to &quot;Dentonvale&quot;, the channel'sbizarre medical show, while Janet is groomed to be the newstarof &quot;Denton Dossier&quot;, 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, &quot;Farley Flavor's FaithFactory&quot;.<br><br>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 &quot;The Young Ones&quot;' 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.<br><br>O'Brian's songs are fantastic and some exceed the quality of tunes in thebetter known &quot;Rocky Horror&quot;. Clever lyrics and catchy tunes abound inclassics like &quot;Bitchin' in the Kitchen&quot;, &quot;Little Black Dress&quot;, and thehaunting &quot;Lullaby&quot;. The choreography is great too, like the briefmirror-dance that accompanies &quot;Look What I Did To My Id&quot;.<br><br>&quot;Shock Treatmet&quot; gets T-E-N, that's ten out of ten!

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.
