Give yourself over to absolute pleasure this Halloween with CinePunked and Accidental Theatre.
On 30 October Accidental will be hosting a singalong screening of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show hosted by Ms Cherrie On Top. While the film is screening, a feed on Facebook and YouTube will feature an accompanying live commentary led by CinePunked’s Robert JE Simpson and Dr Rachael Kelly.
CinePunked’s Rachael Kelly explains: “We’ve been talking about some exciting new forms of content with Accidental for some months now. One of Accidental’s suggestions was a live commentary, and we nearly did that for our Clerks event. We’re both Rocky Horror fans so when they suggested this we couldn’t say no.”
Robert JE Simpson continues: “Its nonsecret that I’ve harboured a lifelong ambition to be in the Rocky Horror cast for a show and this is as close as we might get. The live format is terribly exciting, and commentary tracks offer lots of unexpected challenges. When I recorded the commentary for the Howard the Duck Blu-Ray earlier this year we had the advantage of being able to rerecord – no such luxury here! Expect some facts, some opinions, and maybe some surprises.”
