Deliberate mistake: In order to create the effect where Brad, Janet and Dr. Scott's bodies are turned into stone by Frank, casts were made of the actor's bodies, to create statues of them for the scene. The device turns their bodies into stone, but somehow a pedestal appears beneath both Brad and Janet - although this is obviously to make the statutes stand, where would the pedestals actually appear from in the story? Richard O'Brien, the screenwriter and writer of the original musical, referenced to the pedestals during the DVD commentary, expressing his dislike for them, but also questioning where they would have appeared from.dcrone
