One character, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, chooses to create a boyfriend for himself, while two other characters, Magenta and Riff Raff, are aliens from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania

The movie has a fan following and became a cult classic with movie parties, shadow casts, and conventions across the United States. It was preserved in the US National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2005 because it is culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant,
