When bland engaged couple Brad and Janet seek shelter after their car breaks down in a storm, they find themselves made welcome in the very weird home of mad scientist Dr Frank N. Furter, an alien transvestite who is building a...
This is a movie with a huge cult following, and deservingly so. With its dark humor and fun, witty musical numbers, it's surprising it's not even more popular than it already is. Sure, the storyline is pretty silly: but that's part of the fun! And what fun it is. So... does the Blu-ray do this classic cult film justice?
The answer is a resounding YES. One of the best, if not the best, releases in m collection at this point. Fox has outdone themselves with this Blu-ray. Menus are gorgeous, leaving a very positive first impression. You play the movie, and the opening scene's video quality is astounding. The iconic red lips are better than they have ever looked, and probably the best they ever will look. The video quality is fantastic throughout the movie, although at some point there is some grain (particularly -- as mentioned -- in the scenes with Charles Gray's Criminologist). Audio quality is the real star here, though. Everything comes out clean and polished. No real faults I can find.
The extras are great. Part of the Rocky Horror experience is audience participation, and with some of the features you can experience that while using your home theater. Sure, they're a little cheesy, but they're very fun nonetheless. There's also plenty of other features, including a documentary chronicling the search for the Blu-ray's shadow-cast that includes cameos by cast-members of the movie.
