The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 40th Anniversary Celebration – Blu-ray Edition

the rocky horror picture show 40th anniversaryJim Sharman’s bizarre cult film from 1975is now released in a special 40th anniversary blu-ray collection.

Mixing together the 1950s horror genre and 1970s rock n’ roll, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” successfully made fun of these two institutions. The film is funny and twisted in its tribute to science fiction, horror, b-movies, and rock music. This version contains two additional musical numbers, “Once in A While” and “Superheroes” never seen before in theatres or on DVD. The film was the beginning of very successful careers for castmembers Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry. It is probably the most successful cult film of all time and is replayed around the world in theatres late on Saturday nights and every Halloween.

Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick – from television’s Spin City) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon – Bull Durham, Thelma and Louise), an engaged couple, are driving during a rainstorm when their car breaks down. They seek refuge in a gloomy castle. After being let in by the servant Riff Raff (Richard O’Brien – Ever After, Spice World), much to their surprise they find out that the castle is owned by the transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry – Kinsey, Scary Movie 2). They have arrived at an exciting time for the owner of the castle as he is about to unveil his greatest creation. He has succeeded in making a human being – a male human being to be more precise. As the night wears on, the host proceeds to have fun at his guests’ expense. They have no idea what they are in for!
