Not only is Rocky Horror Picture Show one of the best movies/Rock Operas of all time, but it also has the best DVD features I've ever seen.

I loved going to "Rocky Horror" when I was in college, but watching on home video just wasn't the same. I'm probably committing heresy but there's a reason why this sci-fi, horror, B-movie satire, rock musical didn't really make it big until theaters started showing it as a midnight movie and fans started attending in costume and talking back to the screen. The 25th anniversary DVD, with several audience participation options, really is the next best thing to being there.
For the uninitiated, "Rocky Horror" tells the story of two clean-cut American youths, uptight Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick of "Spin City") and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon of "Dead Man Walking") whose car breaks down on a dark, deserted road in the middle of a storm--the classic beginning to many horror movies--and who seek help at a nearby castle. Castles, as Rocky fans know, don't have phones! What this castle has instead is a cross-dressing mad scientist Frank-N-Furter Tim Curry, in perhaps his finest performance), two very creepy servants, Riff-Raff (Richard O'Brien, who wrote the musical) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn), and various other hangers-on, including lovers Columbia (Little Nell) and biker Eddie (Meat Loaf). Brad and Janet walk in on a party celebrating the creation of Frank-N-Furter's muscle-bound boy-toy "Rocky." Bed-hopping chaos soon ensues, until the servants reveal their true identities and take control.
Punctuating this wacky plot are some of the wildest rock-musical songs ever written. In addition to the classic "Time Warp," there's O'Brien's salute to cult-classic B-movies, "Science Fiction Double Feature," Meat Loaf's "Hot Patootie," and Sarandon ode to sexual self-discovery, "Toucha Toucha Touch Me!"
So much for the "Rocky virgin" portion of the review...

Having owned several 35mm prints of this film and watched many others, I know how this film should look. Overall, this disc looks amazing with intact grain structure and details; however there are 2 major issues.

1. For unknown reasons Science Fiction is LETTERBOXED ( within the 1.66 frame which the Fox logo and the rest of the film is in), cutting off the top and bottom of the lips during parts of the song. The entire film was 1.66 on the dvd so this blunder on the Blu-ray is unforgivable.
2. The blue tint from Brad's bedroom scene has been removed. The blue tint from the Timewarp flashback has also been removed.

I have emailed FOX and have not heard back.

This is a movie you either love or hate. I first heard of this movie when I saw "Fame" ... when I saw the kids in the movie watching this in the theater, it not only looked stupid, but the whole environment of people throwing things at each other in the theater seemed a little scary... and what's with all the midnight theater showings?
I finally had to find out what the big fuss was about and so I rented it on video and watched it at a friend's house. The beginning moves pretty slow, but you will soon be either taking the video back (without rewinding) to the store, or you'll be doubled over in laughter during the few minutes your jaw isn't hanging open.
Tim Curry is absolutely hilarious and perfect for his role... an outerspace Transexual from Transylvania (a planet, not the country - I think)... Dr. Frankenfurter.
Despite the slow parts here and there, the music is great and funny to boot. Where else can you see Susan Surrandon walking around in her underwear and Meatloaf riding a motorcycle with stitches all over his head like Boris Karloff? This is a cult classic, but not just because it's weird and twisted... it's also a musical and a comedy. The soundtrack is great just by itself, good beat, peppy tunes, clever (albeit not mainstream) lyrics.
If the idea of seeing a man walking around wearing lipstick and a garter belt makes you want to scream and take a bath, then this isn't the film for you... you'll feel like you need an exorcism afterwards!
If you like a good laugh, good music and a movie like you've never seen before, this is worth a shot.
After seeing this in the safety of my friend's home, I saw it a couple of years later in the theater. It was an interesting experience I can say I've been through, but that's about it...

So you haven't seen this movie and you call yourself a true movie fan! BAH! I'm sorry, folks. Whether you like it or not, this one's required-reading. And I will tell you something now: I've seen worse on USA's UP ALL NIGHT. In fact, that's just what this movie makes fun of. It takes all those late-night science-fiction thrill-omedies and skewers them mercilessly. A favorite of mine since first-viewing, it's a great musical and an outrageously fun romp. Misunderstood greatly when it first came out, this satire preys on cheesy musicals("Dammit, Janet" is a wondeful indication of this), sex-and-science-fiction films(read "Flash Gordon" & "Barbarella") and a bit of society's judgement of man("Frank-n-furter!/It's all over/your mission is a failure/your lifestyle's too extreme") and how we're crucified if we're not perfect. The performances are on par(including early ones from Barry Botswick and Susan Surandon) but it's truly Tim Curry who steals the show(as the transsexual Vampire known as "Dr. Frank-n-Furter") in a role STILL arguably unequaled to this day.
Wonderfully kinky, catchy and definitely DIFFERENT, it's not a film for everyone but then again, wasn't that the aim to begin with?
