The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

Giant mouths on giant screens creep me out, but the rest of TRHPS tickles my happy place. It's an insane flick inspired by a love of B-Horror movies and cheapo sci-fi, everything from Hammer to Plan 9, with a glaze of camp that gives it a love it or hate it sheen. It has Richard O'Brien on top form, a delectable Susan Sarandon, chilled Meat loaf, and Tim Curry in fishnets.
Now, if I could remove the words "It's just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right, with your hand on your hips, you bring your knees in tight..." from my brain at 2 a.m. then I could maybe get back to not sleeping for other reasons.
