THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a musical comedy about a couple who accidentally stumble into the annual convention of visitors from the planet Transsexual. It is rated 12A for theatrical release. It currently retains a 15 rating on video.

Sex

The moderate sex occurs during a scene in which Dr Frank-N-Furter attempts to seduce the young couple who have taken shelter in the castle. He visits each separately and tries to persuade them to have sex with him. The initiation of his sexual advances is shot through a gauze curtain which obscures the action to a considerable degree.

Language

There is only one use of strong language in the film. It is descriptive in nature and is not aggressive or directed at another person.

The film also contains a brief scene of nudity, during a dance sequence featuring the female character Columbia. As she takes part in a group dance routine her basque drops briefly, exposing her breasts. The nudity here is not overtly sexualised and is also relatively brief.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW also features some mild language, mild visual and verbal innuendo, brief drug references, and some scenes of undetailed and implied violence, including a scene in which a man is killed off screen using a pickaxe.
