I still argue that it's just not the same watching Rocky Horror in the comfort of your own home, rather than crammed into a theater, bar, or convention center watching a costumed local troupe lead the audience through all the usual cues. Still, there's good news for anyone who wants to have a pristine copy of the musical adventures of Brad (asshole!), Janet (slut!), Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and all the rest. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release a new high-def transfer of the cult classic onto Blu-ray October 19th.

The new transfer includes a 7.1 audio upgrade, a mess of new content (detailed below), and a 24-page collectible book of shots by the flick's chief photographer, Mick Rock. The package will cost you $34.99 if you buy it full price. (But why in the world would you do that?) Let's check out the specs:
