Rocky Horror: Episode Zero - Mr. Sardonicus!

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 invite you into the weird and wonderful world of WILLIAM CASTLE, a horror filmmaker and iconic showman who incorporated gimmickry into his motion pictures unlike any director before him! And one of his best gimmicks ever was in MR. SARDONICUS, a creepy thriller where the audience (allegedly) got to pick the ending!  

How did William Castle and MR. SARDONICUS influence THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW? 

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are about to find out!
