*** Maybe the Medusa machine and other alien tech aren't alien tech at all. If it's a Reality TV prank, then that means it'd more than likely be a Hollywood production. And maybe in the reality of the story, Hollywood developed advanced technology that appears alien in nature. And if you really must include aliens into it, maybe that tech was reversed engineered by Hollywood, which was done after the U.S. Military couldn't figure out how to (and somehow, Hollywood secretly has geniuses on their payrolls that are smarter than the military has).

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Elaine from ''Film/GhostbustersII'' slept with a Transylvanian.]]
Venkman scoffs at the idea of an alien having a room at the Holiday Inn but ''The Revenge Of The Old Queen'' script said that Transylvanians have a network of teleporters on Earth disguised as showers. A lot of which were in Holiday Inn bathrooms.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Frank and Scott were working together up until Frank attacked Eddie]]
It would explain how they know of eachother.
Scott worked for a government [=UFO=] agency. The script for the unmade ''Script/RevengeOfTheOldQueen'' sequel says that the higher up members actually answer to the Transylvanian Queen (Frank's mom).
I think Scott was sending Frank humans to study, originally Eddie and Columbia, then Brad and Janet. This would explain why Frank and co were present at the church and Frank knew Brad's car got a flat tyre.
Though Scott didn't expect Frank to hurt or kill any of the humans. Eddie sending his letter made Scott investigate and Frank to get nervous when he shows up asking about Eddie.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Eddie has a FreudianExcuse for his behavior]]
I'm not denying that Eddie was a "low-down, cheap little punk," [[note]] YAY PUNKS [[/note]] but after examining the lyrics of "Eddie's Teddy," I think I've pieced together a theory about ''why'' he acts the way he does. It's stated that he was "the thorn in his mother's side" and he "never caused her nothing but shame," but I couldn't help but feel like Dr. Scott and the Criminologist were being a little moralizing there; after all, show me one teenager who ''didn't'' act rebellious or argue with their parents, and I'll show you a liar. [[UnreliableNarrator Maybe that part of the story was embellished a little]]; the Criminologist likely exaggerated it for dramatic effect (maybe so the audience wouldn't notice that he has no fucking neck,) and Dr. Scott essentially made his sister out to be a martyr because [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead he truly loved her and doesn't want to remember her as anything but perfect]].

Either way, they're correct in their assertion that Eddie and his mother didn't have a very good relationship, but I noticed that -- if Dr. Scott is to be believed -- Eddie's more debaucherous behavior didn't kick into overdrive until ''after'' Eddie's mum died ("since the day she was gone...") My theory is that Eddie was completely broadsided by his mother's passing, and [[PartingWordsRegret regretted that they never got to patch things up]]. So, the day she died, he took off like a Bat out of Hell and never looked back, possibly because his old home held too many painful memories (or because he thought nobody left in the family would miss him -- and judging by Dr. Scott's lack of remorse for Eddie's demise later on, he was right.) From there, he fell into a life of rock-n-roll, porn, motorbikes, and shooting up junk to fill the void left by his mother's passing. Maybe it doesn't justify threatening Dr. Scott's life with a switchblade knife, but this theory should at least explain a few things.

** Made plausible in ''Script/RevengeOfTheOldQueen'', where Steve is able to learn Transylvanian invasion details from Crim's ''Denton Affair'' book.

Added DiffLines:

* This unmade ''Script/RevengeOfTheOldQueen'' script says that Frank was a prince back on Transsexual and his mom the queen doesn't treat Riff Raff any better than he did.


** Alternatively, Columbia reincarnated into [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pinkie Pie]].
** Another theory is that she may have become [[ShockTreatment Nurse Ansalong]].

* Made more plausible by ShockTreatment , where props from the first movie like the American Gothic painting and Frank's throne painted red. The movie is about characters played by the same actors as Riff Raff, Magenta and Columbia making a reality TV show in Denton and a popular fan interpretation is that these are the characters from the first movie in disguise.

This is a fairly old theory to the point that it's probably canon but there are a few allusions to the Third Reich's incarceration of homosexuals: Frank's lab coat has a pink triangle on it and there appears to be a number tattooed onto his thigh when [[spoiler:Riff attacks him with the anti-mater laser]], implying that Frank was very likely captured by some brown coats, but managed to escape. It would explain why he's particularly mistrusting of the German Doctor Scott, and why he refers to him as "Von Scott"[[note]]'''Brad''': "Just what are you implying??" / '''Audience''': "THAT HE'S A NAZI, ASSHOLE!!"[[/note]]: he's not only trying to out him as an alien, he's another one of ''those'' people!

people! In addition, his name being a mix of Frankfurter and Frankenstein could imply the city is where he got his name

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Riff and Magenta were bullied into subservience by Frank.]]
Frank, Riff and Magenta were sent to Earth as a team, but Frank bossed the other two around until he genuinely believed he was their leader. By the time we see them, Frank's basically DrunkWithPower and the two have no choice but to listen to him. Notice the occasional hesitations they give when calling him "master," as if it's still a conscious effort, or [[TranquilFury the look Riff gives Magenta]] when Frank refers to him as "faithful handyman," talking down to his team mate for the hundredth time (WordOfGod also says that Riff did most of the work on Rocky, so Frank clearly has him under his thumb).

* Well, actually, in the [[DevelopmentHell unproduced sequel idea]] ''Revenge Of The Old Queen'', it's revealed that that's how Transylvanian culture is in ''general''. Yes, dressing in heels, corsets, and fishnets is considered normal to Transylvanians.

This theory could also explain why Magenta is dead in Revenge of the Old Queen. When this is first reveals in the script, Riff Raff acts like he didn't mean to kill Magenta while mourning his dead sister. This is because after being a sex slave with no memory of her past life, Columbia begins to remember that she and Magenta were close friends before her memory was erased, possibly due to Riff Raff screwing up the revival method. When Riff Raff attempts to get Columbia to have sex with him, he enters Columbia's bedroom, only to find Magenta and Columbia having sex! In a fit of rage, he finally learned about her relationship with Columbia and was angry that Columbia betrayed him. He was going to originally kill Columbia with his anti-matter gun for being unfaithful, but just like how Columbia "sacrificed" herself for Frank, Magenta sacrifices herself for Columbia, which causes her to remember the last thing that happened to her before she died, and she asks Riff Raff about the things she remembers after he realizes his mistake. Riff Raff apologizes for using Columbia as a sex slave, and explains to her about The Denton Affair. Riff Raff sends her back to Denton to start a new life that was better than the one she previously had. Since Revenge of the Old Queen takes place in Washington D.C., we never get to see what happens to Columbia.
