Movie Review: Shock Treatment (1981)

Shock Treatment is a sort of sequel, sort of equal to 1975’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with different actors playing old roles and old actors playing new ones. The entire town of Denton (“The Home of Happiness”) has been transformed into a television station (in a way), with the majority of the population living in theater seats, lots of other people involved in reality television shows, and various machinations happening on and off screen. Brad (Cliff De Majors) and Janet (Jessica Harper), now married, are slotted to appear on a marriage counseling show hosted by blind Bert Schnick (Barry Humphriese aka Dame Edna).
