The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 British musical comedy which parodies horror and science fiction films, based on the 1973 stage musical The Rocky Horror Show. A favorite of the midnight movie screenings, it is the longest-running theatrical release in history. The film is currently famous for its often participatory nature in public screenings.
