I just happened on this statue whilst in Hamilton. I'm not a 'cult fan' but enjoyed 'Rocky Horror', so I guess why not put a statue here. It's an OK stature, and the plaque is very informative. Go for it!

Great photo-op for one of our favourite films of all time. Richard O'Brien is a genius - the statue had been revamped since our last visit - if you are a Rocky Horror fan - make sure you stop by

A brilliant homage to one of Hamilton’s adopted sons. Very well laid out and informative and fantastic that somebody has gone to the trouble erecting such a monument

We saw this by accident as we were walking along the Main Street to the museum. It was quirky and interesting but to appreciate it fully you really need to be a fan of the movie.

as a Rocky Horror Fan, one HAS to see the Riff Raff statue. Fans will know about the connection between Hamilton and Richard O'Brien. I go there everytime I happen to be in Hamilton.

Riff Raff's creator is from Hamilton and so the surprise statue on the main street. The town is a university town and so young and busy.
