"I see you shiver with antici........ PATION!"

Below is the synopsis of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," per IMDb.

A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Curry originated the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter in a variety of stage productions in the early '70s. But he made his movie breakthrough by playing the role once again in the 1975 film. Dr. Frank-N-Furter is an alien transvestite and a mad scientist who creates a muscle man in his laboratory and seduces a young couple. Yep, Curry definitely stole the show in the film, and began a movie career of brilliant character performances.

"Oh, yes... They float, Georgie... They float... and when you're down here with me... YOU FLOAT TOO!"

Below is the synopsis of the miniseries "It," per IMDb.

In 1960, seven pre-teen outcasts fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.

Long before Bill Skarsgård took on the role of Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the 2017 motion picture reboot, Curry made the part iconic in the "It" TV miniseries adapted from Stephen King's acclaimed novel in 1990. By then Curry was an established character actor known for playing villains, but Pennywise turned him into a horror monster icon. Pennywise joined the ranks of Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Chucky.
