Product Description

Amazon.ca

If a musical sci-fi satire about an alien transvestite named Frank-n-Furter, who is building the perfect man while playing sexual games with his virginal visitors, sounds like an intriguing premise for a movie, then you're in for a treat. Not only is The Rocky Horror Picture all this and more, but it stars the surprising cast of Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick (as the demure Janet and uptight Brad, who get lost in a storm and find themselves stranded at Frank-n-Furter's mansion), Meat Loaf (as the rebel Eddie), Charles Gray (as our criminologist and narrator), and, of course, the inimitable Tim Curry as our "sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania."

Upon its release in 1975, the film was an astounding flop. But a few devotees persuaded a New York theater to show it at midnight, and thus was born one of the ultimate cult films of all time. The songs are addictive (just try getting "The Time Warp" or "Toucha Toucha Touch Me" out of your head), the raunchiness amusing, and the plot line utterly ridiculous--in other words, this film is simply tremendous good fun. The downfall, however, is that much of the amusement is found in the audience participation that is obviously missing from a video version (viewers in theaters shout lines at the screen and use props--such as holding up newspapers and shooting water guns during the storm, and throwing rice during a wedding scene). Watched alone as a straight movie, Rocky Horror loses a tremendous amount of its charm. Yet, for those who wish to perfect their lip-synching techniques for movie theater performances or for those who want to gather a crowd around the TV at home for some good, old-fashioned, rowdy fun, this film can't be beat. --Jenny Brown

3.0 out of 5 stars don't get too excited about the features... Nov. 25 2002
Format:DVD
The audience participation prompter sounds like a bigger deal than it is.. it really only advises on the major prop participation, and is only a few directions scattered throughout the film.
The audio of the audience is much more intensive, but was apparently just taped from a viewing, for a vast majority of it is simply audience members trying to outscream each other with their own lines, which results in a jumble of sounds that I cannot decipher. When they do come together simultaneously, it's great (witty, and great if you're trying to learn), but you have to suffer through the random screaming of inaudible comments to get there.
I have had a major problem with this, which is the features keep turning themselves off. The multi-view experience inevitable shuts off if you try to add anything else (like English subtitles to understand the dialogue during the cacophany). The subtitles and participation prompter also shut themselves off, so that you end up with nothing but the audeience audio time and time again. This has happened on two seperate DVD players, so I would assume it's a problem with the dvd itself.
OTOH, the commentary from the stars makes a unique and entertaining show in and of itself, even to the causal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Used to Cost a Fortune Feb. 15 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This used to cost a fortune to buy.... was a cult favourite in our local Repeatory Cinema... they used to play it at midnight around Halloween. Patrons would dress up like the characters, join in the songs and light lighters at the right scenes... until fire regulations nixed that! :) Tim Curry fans who have seen some of his other movies, like Annie, Muppet Pirates and Fern Gully are in for a big suprise if they haven't seen this one.... this was (in my opinion) his defining role of both his youth and his theatrical versatility.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what you'd expect Jan. 10 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Comes in a nice little book with some neat, high quality pictures and a message from the fan club and producer of the film, Lou Adler. The special features are also what you'd expect. There's not really any behind the scenes but they didn't bother with that back when they were making it. There's some nice things in there, but some of it is kind of pointless, like the callouts portion. But I'd say that if you're a big fan of rocky horror like myself, than you'll like having a high quality copy like this to watch at home, for a good price!

It's Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's a cult classic you either love or hate. This movie requires no review. If you're a fan of RHPS, you'll want this edition for all the bonuses. It also looks fantastic on blu-ray.
