Product Description

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.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

First off, I've never see this production live, I intend to at some point in my life but have yet to experience it. Secondly, I absolutely am astonished by Tim Curry as an actor, his ability to change personality, character and especially voice is riveting. Thirdly, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of my favorite (if not favorite) musical. It's certainly dark, gritty--sure the plot is far-fetched but for 1975 the songs, the acting and the characters have such charismatic depth and perception which is what made the film so enjoyable. I first saw this at the age of roughly 14-15, I didn't appreciate it as much as I do now at the age of 20. I recommend it, most definitely.

'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 Rains 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.'

The above comes from the opening (sung by disembodied oversized female lips with a male voice) of this completely different musical comedy horror film that's a satirical tribute to science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through to the early 1970s.

It is based on the 1973 musical stage production, 'The Rocky Horror Show' by Richard O'Brien (who acts in this movie as the character Riff Raff).

The story centers on a young engaged couple Janet & Brad (Susan Sarandon & Barry Bostwick) whose car breaks down near a castle called the 'Frankenstein Place' where they seek a telephone (no cell phones at this time) to call for help. The castle is occupied by Strangers (notice the capital 'S') in elaborate costumes celebrating the 'Annual Transylvanian Convention.'

They discover that the head of the castle is a Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), an apparent mad scientist who is a transvestite. (Yes, that's right, a transvestite mad scientist.) Dr. Furter hails from (you guessed it) Transsexual, Transylvania. (Well, maybe you never guessed it.)

The singer Meatloaf has a small part in this movie as Eddie.

A criminologist (Charles Gray) narrates the story.

The twenty songs found in this movie are quite good and catchy. And Susan Sarandon sings!

This is undoubtedly one of the canniest, cheesiest, corniest, funnest, and loads of other "ests" movie ever created. And if you haven't had the joy of live play, this is a great sneak peak for all the virgins still hiding in their cobwebbed corners. If you have been de-virginized and just feel the need to be re-prodded, you can't beat the price! Shame Amazon didn't sell it directly when I ordered but the seller still managed to deliver within the allotted time frame. My son lost his RH virginity to this at home (which he insists was better than being in a room full of virgins) and as disturbing as it sounds, he seemed to really enjoy it. Watch it over and over...and over again. Might as well give yourself over to absolute pleasure.

Note: I gave this 4 stars because the extras seem a bit buggy. The interviews are great but the audience participation options are tricky. This isn't a seller or site issue. Those were great. This is just a manufacturing or tech problem (the movie itself or perhaps my player refusing to read and react correctly to the options).

Format: Blu-ray
The cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show looks fabulous re-mastered on blu-ray, and it comes with some fantastic extras, including deleted scenes, commentary, karaoke sing-a-long, both US & UK film versions, and new for the blu-ray, a "midnight experience" which has options of pic-in-pic "shadow" performance, trivia track, and on-screen directions for audience prop and vocal participation. Additionally, there is a brief photo gallery and featurette on photographer Mick Rock, along with doc's on the extensive casting process for the "shadow performers". Not surprisingly, there are noticeable audio fluctuations (between loud musical numbers and softer dialogue), but it's not much of an issue, given the trade-off of worthwhile and interesting extras. Also, the wonderful packaging is designed as a small picture-book disc container. This 35th anniversary blu-ray version of Rocky Horror Picture Show is a must-have for fans.

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.
