Oakley Court Castle

Guided tour by Christophe and Brigitte

 

On December 24, 2004, Christophe (Riff) and Brigitte (Magenta) went to Frank's Castle exactly thirty years later after the shooting of the Rocky Horror Picture Show came to an end. As they fell under the spell, they went back there at the end of may 2005, so some new pic have been add.

More to come soon...

That’s where the elevator was. Actually it was a goods lift just put in there for the movie. But the display cabinets in which the little statues were near the elevator are still here.

The Criminlogist's office. It's still the same bookshelves mais the books have changed. The desk has disappeared, the globe, the Regan and  Roosevelt's photos, the bottle of brandy - It's all gone. Lost in time, lost un space !

Even though the Time Warp and the Sweet Transvestite scenes were not actually shot in Oakley, there is one room in the castle which looks like the movie scenery. The set designers loved this room so much that they have rebuilt it on a set by 4 times bigger and they have added a platform. They have carefully copied even the smallest details and the mouldings.

The door through which Brad and Janet walk at the end of the Time Warp scene. It’s the only moment in the movie when you can see it. Afterwards, it’s its exact replica which was used since it was shot in a studio.

The mirror is exactly similar to the frame used for the Mona Lisa above the mantel piece.
