best midnight movie that needsto replace rocky horror right now (2008)


The Sunshine Cinema showed it for three nights this spring, and it was picked up for midnight shows in Texas and L.A., too, but Menahem Golan's long-lost, deranged 1980 science-fiction disco musical THE APPLE deserves the full floor-show-and-props treatment that Brad and Janet have been hogging for too long. With costumes worthy of Fischerspooner, songs more ridiculous than Urinetown, and broader acting than Kiki & Herb, it's a natural for 21st-century New York City. And did we mention the overtones of messianic Judaism?
