Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Scorpio Rising (1963)

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, and in Season 2, they're using THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW as the starting point!  

This week on EPISODE ZERO they gear up for Kenneth Anger's experimental queer short film SCORPIO RISING, about a group of masculine bikers who defy popular convention. Bibbs and Witney explore the way that SCORPIO RISING forever changed how filmmakers used movie music, paved the way to help legalize controversial and risqué motion pictures, inspired Martin Scorsese and David Lynch and Nicolas Winding Refn, and much, much more! 

Give it a listen!
