A good chance to dress up

Advantagessee article

Disadvantagessee article

"...evening. I had heared of the Rocky Horror Show but did not realise that it had such a massive cult following. I joined the long wait to get in and felt a bit out of place as I was the only one not dressed up. On the way everyone was buying water pistols and rice so I followed by doing the same although I was not really sure as to why. The theater was packed and very noisey untill the film started then there was a deathely silence as every one waited ..." Read review

I See You Shiver

AdvantagesToo many to list...

DisadvantagesMay frighten you at first glance :)

"The first time I saw the Rocky Horror Picture Show I was confused; the second time I saw it I was turned on; the third time I saw it I was a "regular Frankie fan." :) Since then I've seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show hundreds of times, starting collecting Rocky Horror memorabilia, and listen to my various soundtracks whenever possible *thank you, Baby* :) If you like science fiction, musicals, or sex this is truly the film for you. Where else ..." Read review

It's just a jump to the left

AdvantagesClassic Musical returns on 25th anniversary 2 disc boxset

DisadvantagesA bit too strange for some

"...went to see it at the Theatre and instantly became a fan (yes i did dress up, but not too outrageously!). For those who don't know the story is of a young couple who get stranded in the car and call in at a local house to use thier phone. Little do they know that this house is inhabated by rather strange people from another planet included the cross dressing Frank N Furter! A whole amnor of crazy songs and dance routines follow and the young couple ..." Read review

I'm just a sweet transvestite...

Advantagesgreat cult following

Disadvantagesvideo a disappointment

"...teh 25th anniversary video of the RHPS, which we love and have been to see many times. We watched the film, which was as good as ever, about a betrothed young couple off to find their old science teacher - they break down and end up knocking on the door of a big, old gothic mansion to ask for help. They become involved in the goings on there, and end up having a night "a night they would remember for a very long time indeed". The video however, ..." Read review

Rocky Horror Rocks

Advantages2 Disc Set - Good Extras

DisadvantagesNot for all tastes

"...In order to use the telephone to get help they go to the nearest house, an old imposing building with a solitary light showing through an upstairs window. Afer a brief introduction from Riff Raff (Richard O Brien) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn) everyone has a jump to the left, and then a step to the right as they do 'The Timewarp" again. Next we meet up with the "master" of the house, one Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) in all his cross-dressing transylvanian ..." Read review

AdvantagesFunny, great actors, great soundtrack

DisadvantagesAlways finishes when watched

"...favourites, every minute of the film is jammed full of one line jokes, very amusing and catchy sings ie 'the timewarp', great costumes and makeup. The effect is cheap as it should be for a film taken from the stage. The acting is great with many great actors making this one of their best appearances, Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon. The writer himself (Richard O'Brien) plays the part of the weird but funny butler 'handyman'. The plot is thick if not bewildering ..." Read review

What A Sweet Transvestite !!

AdvantagesGreat soundtrack, talented cast, a classic !


"The idea of this film is completely bizarre - a weird mixture of B movies, aliens, orgies & transvestites - but it works ! Tim Curry stars as the outrageous Frank N Furter, with a supporting cast including Richard O' Brien (The Crystal Maze ex-host)& Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise). It is a wonderful film, filled with excellent songs & great dance routines. It is a very camp movie & is a lot of fun, although the violence involving Meatloaf's character ..." Read review

Oh, the An...ti...ci...pa...tion!

AdvantagesClassic songs, Tim Curry is perfect.

DisadvantagesHave to wait till October for the DVD

"...Horror doesn't just belong in the Cult category - it DEFINES it! For 25 years this movie has been entertaining millions of people in theatres and at home. If for some twisted reason you haven't seen the movie or the live show, the story follows two newlyweds after they 'accidentally' stray into the confines of Dr. Frankenfurter and his friends. As it turns out, Frank and his gang are of another planet, and a battle ensues. It may sound corny or odd ..." Read review

The rocky horror picture show - Review.

Advantagesthis film is brilliant for a girls night in, or to watch if your sick or feeling ill

Disadvantagessometimes, one or two songs can drag on for a while, this can get annoying

"...You might of gathered by the title that this would be a horror film, but in no way is it scary or gory.. Ok, so maybe a little bit kinky in places, but I would say that this film is definite fun for all the family. The lead role is played by Tim curry as Dr Frank-N-Furt, He manages to make a character so obscure and bizarre yet likeable and almost, attractive. You want to be in his gang; that's a hard thing to accomplish for a man in stockings. Even ..." Read review

Lets do the timewarp again and again

AdvantagesHilarious and brilliant sound track

DisadvantagesDifficult to get hold of a copy

"...to be, without a doubt, the best cult film ever! Richard O'Brien is a genius for coming up with this cross between all the B movies you;ve ever watched and a few musicals too. Tim Curry is excellent as Frank N Furter, and there's a whole host of famous people in the case, including Christopher Biggins, Meat Loaf, Susan Sarandon and of course Richard O'Brien himself. The film is wonderful, and gave us the classic Time Warp track. The only downside ..." Read review

Rocky Horror Show

AdvantagesIt's so funny and memorable

DisadvantagesIt WILL freak out people without open minds!

"...laugh! If you've never seen the show, you don't know what you're missing, and I'm not going to spoil it for you! The show churns out such memorable songs as, "Time warp" which everybody knows the words too. Considering this was made in 1973, it's quite a tribute that people just want to see the show again and again, it's made millions on the stage, and it's so refreshing to see it on DVD. The quality hasn't been comprimised, sound and vision are perfect, ..." Read review
