The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Synopsis: While driving home during a rain filled night, straight-laced lovebirds Brad Majors and Janet Weiss end up by chance at the castle of one Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his strange and bizarre entourage, and find that he's having a party. This is no ordinary party, no ordinary night. This is the unveiling of the doctor's latest creation: Rocky Horror, a man-made Adonis that will give absolute pleasure. Over the course of the night, Frank seduces both Brad and Janet, Janet and Rocky become biblically involved, and Dr. Everett Von Scott arrives looking for his nephew Eddie (whom Frank killed earlier in this film). This is an exceedingly grand visual and musical camp satire of the golden days of the B-movie horror and science-fiction genres. Projected along with a musical soundtrack to give audience participation a new meaning in dimension, time and space, this shall be a night that both Brad and Janet will remember for a very long time in the sexually kinky, rock 'n roll, rock-opera world of a g

Michael Rennie was ill

The day the earth stood still

But he told us where we stand

And Flash Gordon was there

In silver underwear

Claude Rains was the lnvisible Man

Then something went wrong

For Fay Wray and King Kong

They got caught in a celluloid jam

Then at a deadly pace

It came from outer space

And this is how the message ran

I knew Leo G. Carrol

Was over a barrel

When Tarantula took to the hills

And I really got hot

When I saw Janette Scott

Fight a Triffid that

Spits poison and kills

Dana Andrews said prunes

Gave him the runes

And passing them used lots of skills

But when worlds collide

Said George Pal to his bride

I'm gonna give you

Some terrible thrills

Here they come.

I'd like the parents

and the grandparents.

Yes, all the close family.

Smile! Hold fast. Beautiful!

Congratulations.

Well. . . .

I guess we really did it, huh?

You and Betty have been inseparable. . .

. . .since you met in

Dr. Scott's courses.

Tell you the truth, Brad, she was the

only reason I came in the first place.

I mean--

Okay, guys, this is it!

You ready?

Look, Betty's gonna throw her bouquet.

I got it!

-I got it!

-Hey, big fella.

Looks like it could be

your turn next.

Who knows.

So long.

See you, Brad.

Come on, hop in.

See you, Brad.

Brad, wasn't it wonderful?

Didn't Betty look radiantly beautiful?

Just an hour ago she was

plain old Betty Munroe.

And now she's Mrs. Ralph Hapschatt.

-Yes, Janet. Ralph's a lucky guy.

-Yes.

Oh, I always cry at weddings.

Everyone knows Betty's

a wonderful little cook.

Yes.

Ralph will be in line

for promotion in a year.

Yes.

-Hey, Janet.

-Yes, Brad?

I've got something to say.

I really loved

The skillful way

You beat the other girls

To the bride's bouquet

Oh, Brad.

-The river was deep but I swam it

-Janet

-The future is ours, so let's plan it

-Janet

-So please don 't tell me to can it

-Janet

I've one thing to say and that's

Damn it, Janet

I love you

-The road was long but I ran it

-Janet

-A fire's in my heart and you fan it

-Janet

-There's one fool for you and I am it

-Janet

I've one thing to say and that's

Damn it, Janet

I love you

Here's a ring to prove

That I'm no joker

There's three ways

That love can grow

That's good, bad

Or mediocre

Oh, J-A-N-E-

I love you so

-Oh, it's nicer than Betty Munroe had

-Oh, Brad

-Now we're engaged and I'm so glad

-Oh, Brad

-That you met Mom and you know Dad

-Oh, Brad

I've one thing to say and that's

Brad, I'm mad

For you too

Oh, Brad

Oh, damn it

I'm mad

Oh, Janet

For you

I love you too

There's one thing left to do

Ah-ooh

-And that's go see the man who began it

-Janet

-When we met in his science, exam it

-Janet

-Made me give you the eye, then panic

-Janet

Now I've one thing to say and that's

Damn it, Janet

I love you

Damn it, Janet

Oh, Brad, I'm mad

Damn it, Janet

I love you

I would like, if I may. . .

. . .to take you on a strange journey.

It seemed a fairly ordinary night. . .
