Product Details


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

Product Description

Fasten your garter belt and come up to the lab and see what's on the slab! It's The Rocky Horror Picture Show Special Edition, a screamingly funny, sinfully twisted salute to sci-fi, horror, B-movies and rock music, all rolled into one deliciously decadent morsel. And now there's even more to make you shiver with antici...pation: two additional musical numbers, "Once In A While" and "Superheroes", never seen theatrically or available on video! The madcap, musical mayhem begins when rain-soaked Brad and Janet take refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite mad scientist from outer space who is about to unveil his greatest creation - and have a bit of fun with his reluctant guests! Join Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon and rock star Meat Loaf in the most popular cult classic of all time.

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 "It's just a jump to the left...," July 2 2006
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
It was a cold and rainy night Brad and Janet, had a flat and needed to find shelter and a phone. There was a light. Unknown to them was the particular caste was a meeting place of a unique other worldly crowd. Soon they will have realized their mistake; but will it bee too late?

And where have all the actors gone?

Susan Sarandon from Janet Weiss to Jackie Harrison in "Stepmom" (1998).

She took her screen daughter to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Tim Curry (who likes to play doctor) from Doctor Frank-N-Furter to Dr. Thornton Poole in "Oscar" (1991).

Oscar is still available from amazon.co.uk

Barry Bostwick from Brad Majors to Det. Tucker Pendleton to himself in "Hollywood Squares" (1998) [TV-Series]

Meatloaf from Eddie to himself in "Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell" (1999)

Richard Milhouse Nixon from Himself (archive audio: resignation speech) to "Speeches of Richard Nixon, The (1995) (V)" (archive footage) he will always be with us.

And where is Denton now?

Do your homework and be sure to get these movies first:

Day the Earth Stood Still, The (1951)

Flash Gordon (1936)

Invisible Man, The (1933)

King Kong (1933)

It Came From Outer Space (1953)

Doctor X (1932)

Forbidden Planet (1956)

Tarantula (1955)

Day of the Triffids, The (1962)

Night of the Demon (1957)

When Worlds Collide (1951)

House in Nightmare Park, The (1973)

Reptile, The (1966)

Brides of Dracula, The (1960)

Man in Black, The (1949)

Night of the Demon (1957)

Forbidden Planet (1956)

First time or 100th time, have fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasure, Joy and no Limits March 7 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This is great entertainment. First of all it is a good musical in the rock style with good songs and at times funny lyrics. Second it is a good visual show where gags and tricks are constantly bombarding us with great creativity. I particularly liked the RKO Radio Pictures' Eiffel Tower falling down into some swimming pool. Third it is absolutely delirious and crazy as for the « adventure » the young couple lives in this castle. They both manage to taste the forbidden fruit, the girl with both the host and his male creature Rocky, and the boy with the host himself. Ambiguity and absolute freedom are the two rules of this perverse universe of transexual Transylvanians from outer space. That sure is a joy ride for those two newly engaged young people who got trapped during a rainstorm on a dead end road with a flat tyre and no spare tyre to repair the flat. Next time remember that you must always have a spare in your trunk, but don't think that such an adventure is going to happen to you just because you're going to forget to put a spare in your trunk. It would be too easy. Nightmares of fear and pleasure only happen when you do not expect them at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wild and an untamed thing... March 4 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This video is far more deserving than any other review the rocky horror picture show could get. I like to think of this version as perfect for halloween kareoke. The video has interviews with cos players at the theater about their performance mimicking the movie. After the movie is over, we are shown just how much fans love the time warp at the theater performance. Also, the words are silenced at "Oh brad" (as in when they also say janet), "Creature of the night" (all the characters except rocky at the end) Riff Raff's dazzling "it's all over" song thingy, and the music at the beginning of the floor show (as frank is prepping the performers) is lowered significantly.
Each Rocky Horror video has it's own charm, everything in a certain place. The 25th anniversary, for example, has the two songs that were cut. As for the dvd's, the basic grey covered one I've noticed is exactly the same as disc one of the two disc set, so as far as dvd's go, the two disc set is the way to go (although the dvd version of the movie sucks because the audio tracks are different, it just doesnt seem right, but the extras are great) If you're a newcomer to the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and you need other people to tell you just how great it is, this video is for you (it does include the movie by the way).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favourite musicals of all time
This film is hilarious and a very odd spin-off/reimagining of sorts to the Franksenstein's monster tale. This is one of my favourite musicals of all time!
