It's Not A Sequel... It's Not A Prequel... It's An Equal

From The Creators Of The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The sequel to the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, this film follows the further adventures of Brad (Cliff De Young) and Janet (Jessica Harper), as the now-married couple travels to a small town to appear on a game show. However, once on-stage, they discover that they are trapped on the television show with a bunch of unusual characters.

Shock Treatment is a 1981 American musical-black comedy film and a follow-up to the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show. While not an outright sequel, the film does feature several characters from the film portrayed by different actors and several Rocky Horror actors portraying new characters. It was originally titled The Brad and Janet Show, which included a similar plot and the same songs, but was rewritten to take place entirely in a studio when a Screen Actors Guild strike made filming outdoors impossible.[3]

In spite of pre-release hype (including a promotional TV special called The Rocky Horror Treatment), the film was both a critical and commercial failure when it was released only as a midnight movie on Halloween 1981. It never received a full general theatrical first-run release. Due to its increased budget and box office failure, Shock Treatment an even bigger flop than Rocky Horror's original general release in 1975. The film currently holds a 40% "rotten" rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on five review
