I recently watched the 40th Anniversary version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray for review on my movies blog. Believe or not, this was the first time I’ve seen the Rock Horror Picture Show. The film has a strong cult following, but it didn’t appeal to me. It wasn’t a horrible movie — just not my type of film. Plus you have to be in the mood to dress up and sing along to really enjoy Rock Horror. BTW, if you a big fan of the Rock Horror Picture Show, you should seriously consider purchasing the Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The new ultimate edition includes limited edition packaging, exclusive collectible pink surgical gloves, fishnet stockings and a soundtrack. The Rocky Horror Picture Show 40th Anniversary Edition is available now.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is about a young couple, Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon — she’s so young!). They’re caught in a storm when they run into a car problem. They flee to a scary-looking mansion. The owner is Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), who is a transvestite scientist (this must’ve been a big shocker back in the 70’s). Anyways, while in the mansion, the young couple meets a variety of odd characters — including a biker played by Meat Loaf (I didn’t even know he was also an actor) and a muscular man named Rocky, who was created by Frank-N-Furter.
