Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Rope (1948)

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 get tied up with Alfred Hitchcock's ROPE! The innovative suspense thriller about two young, queer-coded men who decide to commit the perfect murder was filmed to look like one, long, continuous take, and tackles difficult philosophical concepts while also just being a heck of a lot of fun! And wouldn't you know it, it plays suspiciously like a certain ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW dinner scene...

Give it a listen!
