Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

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, Bibbs and Witney revisit THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, an early sci-fi sensation from future Oscar-winner Robert Wise, about first contact with an alien species, who have a message for humanity about how we should live! Is it still one fo the best science fiction movies ever? And how, oh how, did it influence ROCKY HORROR?

Give it a listen!
