**** out of ****    Characterized by its signature catchy lyrics, dancing trannies, midnight movie stylistics, and blood-red pouty lips on the common poster; "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" was an unmistakable cult phenomenon that took the world by storm in 1975 by introducing something new: audience participation. Since it's the characters and the songs that the fans of the musical film would remember most fondly; they would often come to midnight screenings and otherwise dressed …

Pros: a visual treat for those that dare to explore     Cons: none for me     The Bottom Line:   "It's just a jump_to_the_left   And then a step_to_the_right   With your hands on_your_hips   You bring your knees_in_tight  But it's the pelvic thrust  That really drives you insane"  ~O'Brien     When I received an email from Talyseon asking me to join the write-off to pay …

I was ten years old when I first saw “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at home. Those were the days of VHS, and I didn’t have access to the commercial version sold in stores.

Don't Dream It....Be It!
How many campy cult classics can you count on one hand that dominated the midnite cinema for nearly a decade or longer? Here is a perfect example of a musical which has never left our heads and seems to do well with each new generation. Probability suggests that rocky horror picture show will never go out of style and purchasing this DVD is the next best thing to seeing it in your local theatre on Halloween night.       Having had purchased several videotapes through …

Everyone loves a good musical, right? Me, I love a warped musical, a "Time Warp"-ed musical. Simply one of the greatest cult films ever.

Conceived, written, scored, acted and directed by a hairdresser from Hamilton, New Zealand, the stunning thing about The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack was not how accurate it is as a send up of seventies pop culture (and it was), but how, despite that, it stands on its own as a damn good rock record - funny, sure, but also sexy, bombastic, funky, swaggering and even moving in places. For all its splendour, there isn't a great deal of rock music from the time (or for that matter since) which …
