Lent: Part 2

Shock Treatment (1981) – So this was pitched to me as a sort-of-a-sequel to Rocky Horror, but apart from the couple being named Brad and Janet Majors, I’m just not seeing it. Honestly, if they had just named the couple something else, the effort might have been more successful without being compared to its ostensible predecessor. Some of the cast and creative team from Rocky Horror are still there, but it just doesn’t have even remotely the same feel. In a lot of ways, I’d say this is more a companion piece to The Apple than anything else, and I can’t quite decide which one I like more.
