Description The storyline of Richard O'Brien's creation makes up in improbability what it might miss in depth. Brad and Janet, two clean-cut American kids, seek refuge in a strange castle after their car breaks down in a storm. Inside, they encounter all manner of peculiar and grotesque people, revolving around a pseudo-scientific and sex-crazed transvestite calle Frank N Furter.
