Sex & Nudity

  • Two of the aliens, Riff Raff (Richard O'Brien) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn), display sexual intentions to each other (like fondling and stroking that produce evident arousal in the other), but they are brother and sister.
  • In the dinner scene, it shows a book full of porn, and on the first page you see a woman with her breasts visible, but it's only for a split second and too brief to notice.

  • A woman's breasts briefly pop out of her bustier.
  • Several people are seen wearing revealing clothing throughout the film
  • Silhouettes (shadows) of people are used to depict two sexual scenes, a man having sex with a woman, and a man receiving fellatio. (Most graphic moment, the film keeps it's R rating for this scene alone)

  • Statues of completely nude people are seen around the castle (Not graphic, they resemble mythology statues)
  • An element of the plot has the main character creating a muscle man for his sexual pleasure.
  • Sexual remarks throughout and lots of sexual references.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is killed with a pickaxe offscreen. A trail of blood is seen, blood is seen on the killer's gloves.
  • It is strongly implied the a man was fed to everyone at dinner.
  • A man's gory remains are shown, but they're very fake looking
  • Some people are fatally shot with a ray gun. No gore or blood.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • People are seen drinking wine at dinner.
  • Frank-N-Furter periodically smokes cigarettes.
  • Dr. Scott finds a joint (but doesn't smoke it) in The Zen Room.
  • A picture of Eddie in a men's room with a syringe in one hand and tourniquet around his arm about to shoot up is shown briefly.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film is a spoof and homage of the Sci-Fi and Horror genre of the 1950s and 1960s, so there are some mildly frightening scenes, generally during the creation scene, but overall, the film has a comedic tone throughout.
  • The strong implication that a man was fed to everyone at dinner may disturb some people. However, this scene is in place more for comedic value.
