I still love Rocky Horror, despite the age now showing, especially with the gender politics stuff (it was radical and progressive at the time).

Going through my archives[1] I found the video I posted 5 years ago has succumbed to bitrot and a takedown notice, so I had a quick look and found two alternative versions:

That one's just a different fan edit of clips from all the films referenced, I think it's fairly well done but for some of the clips I prefer this one:

Which claims to be close to what O'Brian wanted for the film before test screenings and similar.

Neither has the jarring NuWho Cybermen in that, I suspect, caused the takedown of the original, and I really love the timings of the film title sequences with the lyrics for the first. Anyone got a favourite?

1) For the London Calling 2014 Worldcon promo vid as it's far far better than the Dublin 2019 vid.
This is absolutely brilliant. Not perfect, but still cool.
EDIT: Unfortunately the original video has been taken down by YouTube, but I found a better version.

And if you liked that, you'll almost certainly also like London Calling 2014, a very nice compilation of clips of London-set SF stuff.

From Nicholas, who got it from Sue, both of whom seem to be having innapropriate thoughts about Anne Francis in that outfit from Forbidden Planet. Can't say I blame them.

ETA: There's a non brilliantly integrated clip from Tennant era Who in there, it's appropriate, but does jar a bit, think they should've used a clip from Tomb myself...
