I first watched this film in 1977 at a late night double screening in San Francisco, along with Eraser Head. The movie blew me away, but even more astounding was the audience participation, which included full costumes, sex in the aisles, lighters going off at key moments, and perfectly synced audience dialogue. After that, I decided to watch it whenever possible in other cities too. Chicago was outrageously wild, with the police frisking everyone before they could go in. But the most boring rendition was in London, which really surprised me. I ended up watching it 17 times all over the world. Then, in 2009, I decided to take another look at it and see if it held up. Incredibly, I liked it even more! What a wonderful piece of filmmaking! If you haven't seen it, watch it late at night so the mood is right, and prepare for an unforgettable experience.
I happened to catch this late last halloween, playing on one of the basic satellite channels. Not too many people know what you are talking about when you ask if they have this film in stock at video stores. While this movie is not for everyone, especially children, Adults, as well as those in High school or college might enjoy it. The cast does a superb job and it is quite funny. Give this a try maybe for a halloween screening just for the grown ups or on a late night when the little ones are already sleeping.
None of the local video stores are carrying this DVD, and the kids working there had never even heard of it! If you know about the movie, you know what I mean; if not, but it and watch the extended version and ask your parents about it.
I was told by several people that this was the best movie ever, so I ordered it. I guess its best when you watch it at the movie theater. It was realy quite different and I am not sure yet weather or not I actually liked it. It is truly a classic and I now want to go to the Theater to see it, however it only plays in select theaters on holloween. Not a good movie for children.
I was impressed with the color quality of this older film. It's a different type of movie just for fun and still works. It's good for teenagers to have fun with too, but I would not let children watch. Also college students would get a kick out of it,, have fun......
This is a great movie! I heard of the "legend" and ended up going to a midnight showing (with all the characters in the aisle, etc.) The movie has large amounts of entertainment value and the actors do a superb job! I would not, however, reccomend this movie for anyone under 15 or so...
This film is a great cult classic. For those who have seen the movie this DVD has some great extras so you can experience some of the features you would if you see it in the midnight shoing with live caracters. It also has just the movie by itself in two versions (one has an added scene at the end). If your a Rocky first timer, this is a great movie but definatly not for all ages. This film is not sensored in anyway. Have fun doing the Time Warp!!!
This is a great movie, not quite suitable for all ages, mostly adults or close to it, but it is fun no matter what. I love this movie; i'm not going to watch it 10 times a day, but it's fun to watch with friends, or alone. non-stop comedy, with a little bit of serious edge.
