Trivia

Tim Curry was cast as the original Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the stage production of The Rocky Horror Show in 1973, he continued to play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the first U.S. stage production in 1975 to 1976, and in the 1975 original Picture Show. See more »

Goofs

At the start of the film we see the projectionist start a single 35mm projector loaded with a single 1000 ft reel. This would only provide about 20 minutes of the film at most and nowhere near enough footage for the whole movie. See more »

If I saw it first I might have liked it
21 October 2016 | by lorielles_1960See all my reviews

I knew before I watched this movie that I would not be pleased, but I never thought that I would be so disappointed. If the producers of this mistake wanted to be true to the original, they would never have been able to run it on network television. It almost felt as if the movie tried to take itself too seriously...and that was never the intention of the original.

There are just two things that I can compliment this film on...the vocal talents of the cast, which were overall better than the original, and the inclusion of the audience. It was also good to see Tim Curry, but I wonder what he really feels about the completed film.

Laverne Cox, while extremely talented, was totally wrong for Frankenfurter. The whole point here is that Frankenfurter is a transvestite...NOT a transsexual. The costuming was PG13 and way to glitzy and glamorous.

If I had never seen the original, I might have thought this was a bizarre TV movie, but would most likely have not watched it more than once. The original...is true camp...it is an even to watch.

This is a film that should never have been made...the original did not need a remake.
