''Shock Treatment'' is a 1981 movie musical from the makers of ''The RockyHorrorPictureShow'', with many key cast members -- but although Brad and Janet are once again major characters (albeit played by different actors), it ''isn't'' a direct sequel and few characters aside from them return.

* CanonDiscontinuity: It helps that no attempt appears to be made at all to tie the plot of this film in with''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''. To be fair, it's presented as a SpiritualSequel rather than a direct sequel, albeit with some of the same characters from the previous movie. (And even then 'Brad' and 'Janet' are such common names one could easily presume Richard O'Brian just likes those names and reused them - except for the fact their surname is Majors. Also Betty Hapschatt and Ralph Monroe were characters from ''RHPS'' too.)

** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen An early draft]] would have had Doctor Scott from the first movie filling his role. On escene would have had Nation walk in to find him standing in front of his wheelchair, then he would quickly get back into it.
