The door is opened by a weird-looking guy named Riff-Raff. He, his sister Magenta and a groupie named Columbia do the Timewarp, then we meet Dr.Frank-N-Furter. He is dressed in women's lingerie, explains to Brad and Janet that he's a sweet transvestite, he invites them to his lab for the unveiling of his creation. Up in that lab his creation, Rocky is "born." Then, Eddie, an ex-delivery boy comes out, sings a song, kisses Columbia, then Frank murders him with a pick-ax. Then Brad and Janet go to their separate rooms and each gets seduced by Frank. Janet than has a romantic interlude with Rocky. Dr. Scott shows up, Frank is mad at Rocky, then they all have dinner. Then Frank reveals that the large piece of meat they are eating in actually Eddie. He then turns everyone into stone (excluding Riff-Raff and Magenta), then there is a floor show.

Did I mention the whole thing is narrated by the Criminologist, and this is a musical?

The Rocky Horror Picture Show mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Eddie escapes the deep freeze, he wears three rings on his left hand: his middle, ring and pinkie fingers. Bizarrely, the pinkie ring actually disappears in quite a few shots, including when Eddie plays the sax and when he lifts Columbia, just before they mess around on the floor. (00:42:30)

Question: One of my co-workers said the first line in the show was, "Michael Renee was sick the day the Earth stood still". Could you give me the exact first line and what it means?

Answer: The first line to the lyrics of 'Science Fiction/Double Feature' is "Michael Rennie was ill The Day the Earth Stood Still, but he told us where we stand." That line is a reference to the 1951 film classic 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', which stars Michael Rennie as Klaatu, the alien from outer-space, who is shot at the start of the film when he tries to convey a dire message of goodwill to the humans. The rest of the song lyrics refer to other science fiction films including 'The Invisible Man' starring Claude Rains, 'King Kong' starring Fay Wray, and 'Tarantula' starring Leo G. Carroll.
