Audience Participation

Note: This guide is written for the Rocky Horror audience, but we do try to apply it to other movies when applicable.


Richie Muenster describes the ancient ritual.

"You've arrived on a rather special night."

  • If you've never seen a live show before, you will be labeled.
  • Seeing it at home does not count. That's like masturbation. It's never as good as the real thing.
  • This is the Rocky Horror hazing ritual.
  • When we call on you, please come up to the stage
  • If you can't have fun with it, please stay in your seat.
  • Cause if you not having fun, the cast isn't having fun.
  • And if the cast isn't having fun, nobody gets laid!
  • People that have seen multiple shows are called Sluts.
  • This is now your goal in life.

We have applied these terms to our other movies -

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra: Boners

Clue: Victims

Hocus Pocus: Virgins

Repo! The Genetic Opera: Victims
