Nerdy Show Interview: Marc With A C Gets Shock Treatment

Posted by NerdyShow on July 26, 2017

When The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast isn’t unloading on the latest geek news and happenings, we’re diving deep into super-specific discussions and interviews.

Before there was “reality TV” there was Shock Treatment – a side-step sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show that confounded fans and slipped in under moviegoers’ radars in 1981. No sweet transvestites here, just Brad and Janet trapped in a televised torture chamber that looks eerily like America in the 21st century. The film faded into obscurity, where it would’ve languished were it not for some die-hard fans, among them the lo-fi musician and familiar voice here on The Nerdy Show Network, Marc With A C.

In this episode, Marc and Cap share everything you need to know about this hidden gem of b-movie musicals: the actor strike that led to massive changes in the plot, the fandom that re-discovered it, and the weird story of how Marc’s just for fun covers of the songs turned into a beloved piece of the Shock Treatment legacy (now being pressed on vinyl to coincide with the Blu-ray release). We also have a Rocky Horror bombshell to drop as Marc’s journey to license these songs shed some light on the long-rumored, often-denied follow-up film, Revenge of the Old Queen.
