It's the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when they car halts in the rain. They both look for contact only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Especially when a large group of Transylvanians dance to the 'Time Warp', Dr. Frank-N-Furter builds his own man and a whole host of participation for the audience to enjoy. Written by
At the midnight showings, not only do patrons dress up, they bring props. There are no hard-and-fast rules on props, but the following is a list of some of the most common:
Rice (to be thrown at Ralph and Betty's wedding)
Water pistols (back row squirts them during rain scene)
Newspapers (for front and middle rows to shield themselves from rain)
Flashlights or cigarette lighters ("There's a Light" verse of "Over at Frankenstein Place")
Rubber gloves (during and after the creation speech, Frank snaps his gloves three times)
Noisemakers (the Transylvanians applaud Frank's creation - so should you)
Toilet paper [preferably "Scott's" brand] (when Brad yells "Great Scott!", throw a roll)
Confetti (at the end of the "Charles Atlas" reprise, the Transylvanians throw confetti)
Toast (when Frank proposes a toast at dinner)
Party hat (when Frank puts on his hat to wish Rocky happy birthday, so does the audience)
Bell ("When we made it/did you hear a bell ring?")
Cards ("Cards for sorrow/cards for pain")
The props tend to vary somewhat from city to city, especially as some localities (and theaters) impose restrictions. For example, the "There's a light" prop was almost always lighters during the original 1970s shows, but open flames are now banned in most movie theaters (either by theater policy or by law - and considering that another common prop is newspapers, this is generally a good idea). Another example is that some fans insist that the toast should be buttered. However, many theaters frown on this, due to the mess (and the possibility of someone slipping).
When Brad and Janet are being undressed, Brad's sweater is pulled over his head. The shirt he wearing under it is clearly already completely unbuttoned, to speed the process. See more »

A young naive couple experience a modern Frankenstein.
Those who gave this gem a low score - Please! Crawl back in your cardboard life and stay there! This film bubbles with zest, wit, subtle humor, raw humor, strange scenes, great songs and a huge host of memorable characters. Most of the characters are drawn as sharply as if a straight razor...well, not straight...as if a razor had been used. Not intended for the super straight part of our culture, which is why it usually plays at midnight shows, but you'll notice that it's been playing steadily for 30 years now, especially along the American coasts, which is a better record that almost anything else you can think of (excluding Gome With The Wind in Atlanta, a single town). I even took my mother to one of the 15 or so theater viewings I've attended. She thought the dressed up audience was a little strange, but she found out why they were so enthusiastic and quite liked the show. It's just a time slip....
