Rocky Horror Picture Show flopped on release
When the Rocky Horror Picture Show was released in 1975, it was a commercial flop. The producers then decided to screen it only at midnight shows. It became a cult movie and for long held the record for continuous running. It grossed more $200 million.
It also is one of the world’s most staged productions and is considered one of the best examples of pop culture.
