I have always loved this movie and was so thrilled to be able to own it!...
ITEM#: 2501032THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a magical phenomenon unlike anything ever before seen onscreen. Borrowing largely from cinema's horror conventions, the film begins as an innocent young couple is stranded at the home of a mad scientist who is building the perfect man. The castle is filled with a most bizarre group of characters who worship their master, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, played magnificently by the fabulously sexy Tim Curry, in leather jacket, pearls, fishnet stockings, and heavy makeup. Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) are forced to examine their own sexuality as the voluptuous doctor releases the hidden desires in each of them. Based on the stage musical by Richard O'Brien (who also appears in the film as Riff Raff), the film comes alive with unforgettable song-and-dance numbers that have come to represent the sexual liberation of the 1970s. The outstanding costuming and makeup, the terrific acting by a group of relative unknowns (Curry, O'Brien, Bostwick, Sarandon, Nell Campbell, Patricia Quinn, Meat Loaf), and the memorable songs ("Time Warp," "Sweet Transvestite") help make THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW one of the most bizarrely entertaining and satisfying musicals ever made.

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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
After seeing this in the theater 25 years ago, I wondered if I would enjoy seeing this again, I wasn't disappointed.Read More
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.Read More
