- Does Brad know that Janet is cheating on him with some guy named "Bran"?
- I am now going to have to write a fanfic about Janet being in love with a guy named Bran...
- It's not a guy named Bran. Janet is in fact in a sexual relationship with corn bran, as in the cooking material.
- Look how far D and N are on your keyboard. My WMG is this is a troll entry.

- YOUR FACE is a troll entry!

- WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS ON THIS WIKI?!
- Well, actually, in the 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.
- Well, that would explain the ending speech the Criminologist makes. The only question is how he would have statements from all the people involved, unless....
- Made more plausible by Shock Treatment, 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.
- For a while I wondered the opposite. Maybe RHPS was a reality TV prank done by a human TV company but then why would they have advanced technology like the Medusa machine and other alien technology?
- Made plausible in Revenge of the Old Queen, where Steve is able to learn Transylvanian invasion details from Crim's Denton Affair book.
- Hear me out. At the beginning of the movie, Brad and Janet both start out completely innocent, with naive, childlike stupidity. They met this man, Frank N. Furter, with his strange tastes and culture, and are at first repulsed by it. Soon, however, they give in to pressure, mostly out of curiosity. While Janet finds out she likes it, Brad is confused more than ever by the way things happen. Soon, things are brought to their peak during the "Floor Show", where things get too wild. Frank, Rocky and Columbia are all killed because of their strange interests and behaviors, while Brad and Janet escape, either better or worse from their experience. The message is clear: Giving yourself over to pleasure can be good, but too much can lead to a bad end.
- That... is very clever.
- Probably a Galatea.
- Expanding further on this, both Frank n Furter and Riff Raff are experiencing disquiet in the latter parts of the movie (preusmably, Transylvanians are more sensitive to disquiet than Earthlings).
This is also why Magenta really isn't seen as much in Blue's Clues in the newer episodes. If she's seen at all, they simply use a subsitute dog. However, they know that she won't be as convincing as the real Magenta, so they don't have her act much, but just throw her in the background when she's needed.it only◊ makes sense!
- This website confirms that, but I'm not sure how official it is
- Before you go "Oh no, not another 'This TV show/movie was actually a character's coma' theory!", I have a pretty good reason for this. We do not know a whole lot about Columbia in the film, besides that met Frank one day when a pick-up truck came up to her, that she has a boyfriend named Eddie, and that she loves Magenta. Columbia doesn't do a lot in the film, so I think this is because this movie is actually what she saw in a coma, and this might explain why she doesn't talk a lot in the film. Columbia fell into this coma in a motorcycle accident with the real life Eddie, who died in the accident. Columbia made up these characters in the dream because in real life, she was too shy to talk to anyone besides her boyfriend and her best friend (who was the real life Magenta). The real life Frank was based on Columbia's science teacher, Riff Raff was her uncle, and Brad and Janet were homecoming king and Queen at her high school. (The coma incident happened when Columbia was a senior in high school) Columbia's death in the movie might symbolize when the real life Columbia woke up from the coma.
Remember when Frank told Riff Raff and Magenta "Even my children turn on me..." after Columbia's monologue? There's a reason he said that: Columbia was a teenage girl he kidnapped in Denton. He kidnapped her because he not only wanted to have someone to have sex with, but he wanted a "daughter" as well! A common stereotype of kidnappings is that the kidnapper will either have a van or a truck, and Columbia sings of seeing a "pick up truck" in The Time Warp. However, she fell in love with Frank pretty quickly when she was kidnapped.
- Maybe it's implied but I always thought Dr Scott sent Eddie to the castle to investigate Frank.
As for Janet, she may have been in on the plan as well, or she could have just been some hapless woman brought along by Brad to help with his cover story.
- Not confirmed but made more plausible by Revenge of the Old Queen, where Brad's brother is an agent working for a government agency that investigates aliens (presumably the same one as Dr Scott).
Columbia was actually a teenage girl. Riff Raff and Magenta were her parents, with Riff Raff being the abusive parent and Magenta being the kind parent. Columbia would often be sexually abused by Riff Raff, usually when Magenta would refuse to have sex with him or when Columbia needed to be punished. To address her confusion about sex, she created an imaginary friend, Doctor Frank N Furter, who was based on a drag queen on a late night TV show Columbia saw. In the show, the drag queen was a scientist who had many wonderful inventions he used to help solve the problems of people who came to his laboratory. The name "Frank N Furter" was taken from a slang term Riff Raff often used for his penis, and the fact that Frank came from another planet was because Columbia had never seen anything like a drag queen in the real world, so she assumed that they must come from another world. Eddie was invented when Riff Raff brought up that Columbia would never get a boyfriend.
Columbia would often talk to Frank about cruel concepts she was trying to deal with. Also, as Riff Raff got more abusive, Frank became more violent, possibly so that Columbia could have someone to defend her from her abusive parent. Columbia blamed all her violent acts towards Riff Raff on Frank.
One night, Columbia's cousins, Brad and Janet, came over for Riff Raff's birthday party. They were around the same age as her, and Columbia introduced them to Frank N Furter, and told them about his new creation: Rocky, who represented Columbia's desire to live a normal life and raise children. Columbia, Brad, and Janet interacted with Columbia's imaginary friends for a while...until Riff Raff was angry that Columbia introduced Frank to Brad and Janet, since he found it immature, and as punishment, Columbia was raped by Riff Raff.
Once Columbia's rape finished, she found Magenta and told her about what happened. After talking to Magenta, Columbia decided to cheer herself up by putting on a pretend stage show with singing and dancing, and Brad and Janet were involved in this show, too! Again, Riff Raff wasn't too pleased when he found out Columbia was playing with Frank N Furter again. Instead of punishing her a second time, he told Columbia that if she still had Frank, she wouldn't make any friends in real life. Therefore, at the end of the party, Columbia ditched her imaginary friends and faked her own death for them and pretended that they died as well.
When Columbia was older, she decided to write a novel loosely based on the night she "grew up", entitled "The Denton Affair".
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.
- This unmade Revenge of the Old Queen 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.
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 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.
