Trivia: When Magenta and Columbia are reclining on the long couch in their "bedroom" you can see the Rocky Horror album cover on the lamp.
Trivia: Meatloaf had a fear of riding a motorcycle during "Hot Patootie" so he not only had a stunt double, but during close-ups of him on the motorcycle he actually was on a wheelchair with the shield connected to it, creating the illusion of him on the motorcycle.
Trivia: A life-size bronze statue of Riff Raff dressed in the finale's space suit was erected in Hamilton, New Zealand in 2004, in a tribute to RHPS creator/writer Richard O'Brien. The following is inscribed on the plaque: "It's astounding! Where we stand is the birthplace of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. On this site stood the Embassy Theatre, the home of Hamilton's Late Night Double Feature show, and the barber shop where Richard O'Brien cut hair and daydreamed from 1959 to 1964." WETA Workshops, of Lord of the Rings fame, designed the statue.
Trivia: Meatloaf, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, ironically is a vegetarian.
Trivia: Several cast members from the original Rocky Horror Show stage play reprise their roles in the film. These include Tim Curry as Frank, Patricia Quinn as Magenta, Richard O'Brien as Riff-Raff and Little Nell as Columbia. Jonathan Adams who plays Dr. Scott in the film was the original Narrator in the London stage production while Meatloaf played both Eddie and Dr. Scott in the Los Angeles production.
Trivia: When the stunt double was riding on Eddie's motorcycle, he once swerved trying not to hit one of the "unconventional conventionists." In his effort not to hit anyone, he fell off one of the side ramps. When a crew member tried to catch him, the crew member broke his leg.
Trivia: Rocky Horror was nearly Susan Sarandon's last movie. The actress caught pneumonia after filming the pool scene but continued working with a doctor's advice that if she must continue, she should try to stay warm. The crew set up a warming tent and put space heaters in her trailer. Both the tent and her trailer caught fire, luckily when the actress was not in them.
Trivia: During the scene where they were having meat for dinner, only Tim Curry and Richard O'Brien knew Eddie's (Meatloaf's) body was under the table and they were suppose to be eating him. None of the other actors knew this. Therefore when Dr. Frank-N-Furter lifts the tablecloth up exposing the body, the reaction of the other actors are genuine.
Trivia: The famous opening scene with the lips was inspired by a painting called "Lips Over Hollywood" by the artist Man Ray.
