** The 2015 TV remake is largely a shot-for-shot remake of the original. With the exception of the Usherette character being utilized in the remake, no other elements from the original stage production ''not'' used in the 1975 film aren't presented in the remake. Rocky is even still mute, even though here there's no reason for him to be. Columbia's death is also exactly the same as in the 1975 film.

* FetishFuel: The Medusa scene is very popular among those who are into agalmatophilia (i.e. sexual fantasies involving statues, usually naked ones). In fact, one could argue the entire film is filled with all sorts of fetishes.

* SoBadItsGood: This movie is a textbook deliberate case of this. The plot (such as it is) is very like ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'' (probably unintentional, given ''"Manos"'''s cliched plot and utter obscurity until ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'' found it) with vast galloping amounts of homoerotica thrown in. The characters were, for the most part, based on those of the Bulgakov novel ''Literature/TheMasterAndMargarita'' - itself a modern masterpiece, partly because all of its failed drama is [[LogicBomb deliberate.]] Richard O'Brien intentionally made it this way, as a tribute to the campy sci-fi films of the 50s & 60s (as evidenced by the opening number ''Science Fiction/Double Feature'')

** A lot of British people like the film due to most of the cast being British. Also, performances of the original stage show (''The Rocky Horror Show'') are more common in the UK than the US, where showings of the movie with shadowcasts are more common than the stage show.
** The movie also has a sizable LGBTFanbase.
