The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of the first and greatest midnight cult classics. On a Friday Night you can count on a theater full of cosplaying fans with all the accessories watching and responding to it somewhere in the world.
Long a staple of dinner theater (a delicious twist that is certainly filling… I mean fitting), a very talented group of players has produced a new version for television and it does, indeed, do the Time Warp again.

Ok, good may be a stretch, but I’ve always personally loved the music. I mean come on, “Touchy, Touchy, touch me, I want to be Dirty!” The CBS Television show – The Closer pulled off an absolutely amazing episode dedicated to The Rocky Horror Picture show. That’s how culturally significant the Rocky Horror Experience is/was in pop culture. If that’s not enough Glee did a themed Rocky Horror Episode a few weeks ago.
I’ll admit it – I didn’t see The Rocky Horror Picture Show, even though it played at a local theater many times during and after its initial release. I first encountered it at a Rocky Horror party at the local sci-fi convention, Con-Version several years later. I subsequently became a fan – though I prefer to actually watch the movie rather than sit in a roomful of people who are throwing toast at the screen.
Now, for its 35th anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment is putting together a Blu-ray debut release with a host of cool features. It’s enough to make a guy upgrade to hi-def! At least I’ve got ‘til October to scare up the cash…
