For all the Rocky Horror Picture Show Fans Out here in cyber land

  1. How many of you posters have seen the Rocky Horror Picture show more than 5 times and dressed up like your favorite character? What is your favorite "interactive" scene in the movie?

    I have seen the RHPS at least 40 times while in HS. I would always dress up like Magenta!! My favorite interactive scene was doing the Time Warp on the stage at the Highland Park theatre in Dallas. It was always a midnight showing there on Friday and Saturday nights! Those were the good ole days. But, I do own it on DVD and watch it with some of my "weirder" friends and it will be showing at my house very soon (after graduation party) for those that have never seen it. This should be interesting ........

    Have a great day everyone!!

    You're a HOT DOG!

    But you better not try to hurt her--

    FRANK FURTER!

    --I'm a major RHPS fan--unfortunately by the time I got to see it, they had stopped the showings in New Orleans. I know the movie by heart though; does that count?:chuckle

    My husband has asked me the same thing and I have no explanation other than you have to like really odd things I guess!! It was tons of fun just "cuttin loose" with friends. Part of the success and following in TX was that it was made in Denton. Kind of like staying out in town until 2 or 3 in the morning when there was absolutely nothing to do other than chat and count the stars.

    To those who haven't seen it.......rent it and watch it just for a crazy time!!

    This is bizaare. My husband dragged our almost-20 y/o son with him to go see it (I was working). My son thought it was too cool. He especially liked the girls outfits!

    That was the point for me! I went maybe 50 times in high school because I was part of the Goth/punk squad and I got to run around mostly nekkid in black leather and fishnets. Of course, now when I think about the fact that I was FIFTEEN and the men that were there ogling me I want to throw up, but that's a whole 'nother thread.

    I always liked the floor show scene the best. Rose tint my world keep me safe from my trouble and pain . . .

    I must be in the minority. I hated it---it came out before I was even allowed to see the movie, but when I did, I did not get what all the fuss was about. . I failed to see the draw to it at all. I must be missing something.

    I have very fond, smoke filled memories of going to see RHPS back when I was a teenager. Never dressed up, cause the location that showed it in Nashville didn't do that. My favorite scene is Frank's arrival in the elevator and sings Sweet transvestite.
    Seeing it now as an adult, I think the best part was the audience participation. The responses to the characters in the movie.

    Now that I am a grown up and go to church, and changed my life and attitude about stuff, I sort of cringe about the whole subject matter. But man, it was fun while it was happenin back then!

    I was kind of joking above, kind of not. Really, for a lot of us where I lived (suburbs!) it was about getting to be a 'freak' in the company of others like you. Of course it's a terrible movie! There's just a certain subculture of teenagers that feels their darkness somehow relates to the movie. I'm really not sure, thinking back, how the movie actually relates to being Goth. Huh. We felt safe there, I guess.

    In the 70's, my dad took me to see it. Never heard of it then. The beginning of the movie was oh so boring and so drab with bad acting. I thought, Oh God, dad took me to see a bad "B" rated musical. When Frank kicked off his cape on stage and began singing his Sweet Transvestite song, I almost died, but dad had a riot seeing my reaction. He laughed so hard. Looking back, it was pretty funny. Seen several times over the years since then. I like the audience participation, but now the audience come backs seem to be a little more crude for my liking; it wasn't as bad in the early days. There are lots of good parts I still like. I just consider it now as something of a throw back to my younger years. I have the DVD for nostalgia sake.

    I was in college the first time it came out and never went. But my best friend went every weekend for months and months and had a blast. He bought the soundtrack and we'd dance about the dorm room singing "Sweet Transvestite". That was soooo long ago.

    I finally saw it about 20 years later on video. It's so horribly cheesy.

    (Marie, you might be too young to remember the intiial phenomenon, but phenomenon it was. It's still shown here on Saturday nights at a local indy theater all these years later.)
