A Regular Frankie Fan is a 2001 documentary film covering the unique Rocky Horror Picture Show audience participation phenomenon, with footage from shows and cast member interviews. It was created by Scott Mabbutt (director, writer, producer, and editor), and actor/songwriter Paul Williams narrates. Several shadowcasts are included in the film, though Midnight Insanity of Long Beach, California receives particular attention. The DVD also includes some additional footage of Bob Simon and other attendees at the 2001 Frankie Goes To Hollywood convention, presented by M.I. in Hollywood, California. The full list of shadowcasts featured:
Amazon.com DVD Review: What Trekkies was to Star Trek fans, so this affectionate documentary is to devotees of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which after 25 years is still the mother of all midnight movies. As narrator Paul Williams notes, attending a screening of Rocky Horror is "a multigenerational rite of passage". Meet the freaks and geeks who attend each weekend and dress up and cavort as their favorite characters. Technically unpolished (the vertical image compression takes some getting used to), this heartfelt labor of love will be "absolute pleasure" for those who, for at least a few hours each week, live out Rocky Horror's subversive and seductive siren song, "Don't dream it, be it." --Donald Liebenson
