I went out to smoke with some goth kids during a live screening of this (ya know, where people throw toast and make inside jokes throughout the whole fucking movie) so I never really saw it. Plus, I was high.
I hate musicals so I remember trying to drown out all the singing. Let’s see… The movie begins with… I have no fucking idea.
There’s a show that has a bunch of people who dance in it. And people go to see it but the show is actually made up of a lot of dead people.
Someone named Janet is in it. And Tim Curry plays this crazy goth trannie who decides to do a big show to bring life back into the town.
Some people are murdered and Tim is blamed? There are also a lot of fishnets. And they sing “Tell Me More” or something. No wait, that’s Grease or West Side Story. Or Bye Bye Birdie.
I have no fucking clue.
EDIT: Oh! I think there’s a Meatloaf song in it that all white people seem to know the dance to even though it’s really the gayest song I’ve ever witnessed white people dance to outside of The Macarena. And white people like to put their ties on their heads when this comes on. Something about fanning and grease lightning? Oh shit, that’s Grease again…
