Cuts and Additions:
- The opening sequence is presented in black and white up to the "Time Warp", as originally planned during the production of the film. Unlike the bonus B&W feature on the DVD/BR releases, the red color of the "Science Fiction Double Feature" opening number has been preserved.
- The deleted scene with the song "Once In A While" sung by Brad has been restored.
- The original mono soundtrack has been recreated, with the original sound effects intact and with the original vocals by Trevor White on "The Sword Of Damocles" and "Rose Tint My World". The mono mix also includes the alternate version of the ending credits, as once included in the original 1977 home-video release.
- Also included is a new 5.1 mix presented in DTS (audio 2), and a cast commentary with Richard O'Brien and Patricia Quinn (audio 3).

My girlfriend loved the new footage and I appreciated the properly de-coloured opening scenes. All in all, a good night of film viewing at our haunted castle. Thanks for this important restoration work!

This was awesome! A must-see for any Rocky Horror fans. Picture was beautiful 1080p (even though this movie looks better in lower quality, especially in 35mm). I listened to the mono mix and it was astounding. I'm sure the 5.1 track is just as good. If the audio commentary is the same one on the DVD/BD it's a blast.

The only thing that could have made this better would be the inclusion of the audience participation audio track, but whatever I can edit it and mux it in myself.

Highly highly recommended for all RHPS fans.
