That time Tim Curry told me that he thought Rocky Horror Picture Show was a “one-shot deal”

By Steve Newton

It was pretty cool being the only journalist in the world invited onto the Vancouver set of Stephen King‘s It back in 1990.

At least I think I was the only one, because I haven’t seen any other articles from that time, or interviews with the cast and crew, apart fromthe ones I did for Fangoria magazine.

The cool thing was that, not only could I ask star Tim Curry all about Pennywise, the evil clown he played, but also whatever else I damn well wanted to know.

So at one point in the conversation I asked him if there was any chance of a sequel to the 1975 film that made him a star, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. (The failed 1981 “spinoff”, Shock Treatment, hardly counts.)

He said that he thought Rocky Horror was kind of a “one-shot deal”.

Turn up the volume (it’s a little hard to hear) and have a listen:
