The divine film adaptation from Richard O'Brien's British musical horror comedy/rock opera features Brad and Janet, a couple who find themselves lost on a cold, rainy night. The madcap, musical mayhem begins when the couple takes refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter as he is about to unveil his greatest creation - and have a bit of fun with his reluctant guests.

November 2nd, 2010
New releases failed to make much of an impact on this week's DVD sales chart with only one placing in the top five and only two or three others in the top 30. This left How to Train Your Dragon on top with an easy win at 1.42 million units for the week. This gives it totals of 3.29 million / $70.40 million in consumer spending at retail, which makes it the third-best-selling DVD for any 2010 theatrical release and the eighth-best-selling DVD of the year.

There's a bit of a lull in activity on the home market this week, at least in terms of big sellers. The best selling release is Predators and while I recommend picking up the Blu-ray, the movie barely made $50 million at the box office, so I have realistic expectations regarding its sales potential. Meanwhile, the Pick of the Week is a classic from 1975, The Rocky Horror Picture Show - 35th Anniversary Blu-ray.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of those movies I'm almost embarrassed to say I've never seen, at least I've never seen the whole thing in one sitting. It is one of the most famous movies of all time and has a dedicated fanbase that treats the movie more like a religion more than mere entertainment. It was based on the musical written by Richard O'Brien, who is best known for providing the voice for Lawrence Fletcher on Phineas and Ferb, which means I have a sudden urge to quote that show throughout my review. I'll try and fight that urge.
