On this week’s “Cheer and Loathing”, we kick off “Musical March” with a science fiction double feature of “Rocky” and “Repo”.
THIS EPISODE: “THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW” AND “REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA”
You’re arrived on a very special night. Now that February is over, we’ve put Nic back in his Cage, and we’ll be sounding off about horror musicals all month long. That’s right…it’s Musical March! And we’re ranting and raving about two paradigms of rock opera: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008). Stephanie craves these cult classics like a junkie craves Zydrate pressed against their anatomy. But do they strike a chord with Casey, Mister “I hate musicals” himself? Tune in to find out!
Don’t forget that each month you have a chance to win a killer prize just for leaving a review of the show on iTunes (or the platform of your choice) or leaving us a short voice message telling us what you think of the show, leaving a suggestion for a future episode, or just letting us know how wrong one or both of us are! You can do that right here: https://anchor.fm/cheerandloathing/message.
Be sure to head over to our Instagram page at @morbidlybeautifulhorror or @srgreenhaw. Find one of our Cheer and Loathing posts and leave a comment letting us know you left a review or voice message. This makes sure we can reach you to send you your prize if you win!
In the U.S. where Stephanie is, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is not currently streaming anywhere for free, but you can rent it on most VOD platforms. In Canada where Casey lives, it’s showing on Disney Plus. Repo! The Genetic Opera is available in the U.S. for free on Prime, or free with ads on Roku and Tubi. It’s available on both Prime and Tubi in Canada as well.
Tune in next week (3/14) where we’ll be continuing Musical March, discussing Sweeney Todd and Little Shop of Horrors.
