I got it. Spoilers below. . .






















































All are referenced in the opening theme of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

Although "King Kong" I don't think is in the theme but is mentioned in another song. Perhaps replace it with this.

Oops, forgot "Day of the Triffids", but "King Kong" is indeed mentioned:

Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still
But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Raines was the invisible man
Then something went wrong for Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space
And this is how the message ran:

Science Fiction - Double Feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Ann Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carroll was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot when I saw Janet Scott
Fight a Triffid(refers to Day Of The Triffids) that spits poison and kills
Dana Andrews said prunes gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills(refers to Curse of the Demon and is the least obvious of all of the references)
But when worlds collide, said George Pal to his bride
I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills, like a:

Science Fiction - Double Feature
Dr. X will build a creature
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Ann Francis stars in Forbidden Planet(second mention)
Oh-oh at the late night, double feature, picture show.
I wanna go, oh-oh, to the late night double feature picture show.
By RKO, oh-oh, at the late night double feature picture show.
In the back row at the late night double feature picture show.
