Susan Sarandon refuses to talk about the movie, but not for the usual reasons. It's because she hates the fact that none of the cast members get royalties from the DVD sales.
Tim Curry was very reluctant to talk about the film for years and even told VH-1 that he grew "chubby and plain" in order to try escaping the role. These days, he's more open to talk about the film and even sees it as a "Rite of passage" for teenagers.
Peter Hinwood (Rocky) is only slightly embarrassed by being in the film. Contrary to popular rumor, he's never thrown anyone out of his shop for talking about the film. He only sees the film as a "part of the past" and rarely talks about it.
Development Hell: Richard O'Brien has been mulling over making a direct sequel note Shock Treatment doesn't count! to the original stage show for years. However, so far, all that's been seen are a few scrapped scripts and a vague concept that involves Frank coming back to life, though he's apparently written the first act to the sequel.
Tim Curry was the only one who knew Eddie's corpse would be under the table. All of the reactions from the actors as he tears the tablecloth away are genuine.
For the scene where Dr. Scott is dragged into the laboratory via electromagnetnote GO, SPEED RACER, GO SPEED RACER, GO SPEED RACER, GOOOOO!, the production designers realized they forgot to build a door for him. What did they decide to do instead? Use him to knock down the friggin' wall.note HEY, KOOL-AID! OH YEAHHHHHH.
Fan Nickname: Say it with me now....ASSHOLE! (Brad) SLUT! (Janet).
Not yet for Janet, give her time!
We gave her a chance, she blew it and Rocky!
Fan Community Nickname: Interestingly, only applies to a specific subset of the fandom: those who have never seen this movie in a theater with a live cast as part of the Audience Participation are referred to as "virgins" while those who've seen it regularly are called "sluts."
Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: A lot of British people like the film due to most of the cast being British actors. Also, performances of the original stage show, The Rocky Horror Show, are more common to find in the UK than the United States, where showings of the movie with shadowcasts are more common than the stage show.
According to Meat Loaf, Elvis Presley was the studio's first choice to play Eddie in the film version, and apparently Elvis actually had expressed some interest in doing so.
Word of God: According to Richard O'Brien, it was actually Riff Raff who did most of the work on Rocky. Riff's line "Everything is in readiness, master. We merely await your... word". is pretty clearly a stab at Dr. Furter.
