It is a perfect example of a cult classic. It was panned on release, but gathered momentum in midnight screenings with audiences joining in and dressing up. It is a glorious horror-comedy movie, gleefully satirising the B-movies genre as it strides across the floor. If you’re looking for high camp and infectious insanity, look no further, because Tim Curry’s wearing fishnets.
