Going into FOX’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, you know that it can never live up to the 1975 cult classic film, but it can do its originator justice. Unfortunately, this new 2-hour TV special doesn’t.
The original The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a horror-comedy musical, became a counter-culture sensation after midnight screenings generated the now-famous audience participations, cosplay, and in-theater act-alongs. The film itself was an homage to classic science fiction-monster movies, complete with camp, meshed with gender-bending and titillations that were still considered taboo at the time, all set to catchy rock and roll tunes. It was unique, it was exciting, and it resonated with people so strongly that the movie and soundtrack are still in play today, and theater productions continue to be staged around Halloween time each year.
Ghouls and haunts cheer for the day that comes once a year. Happy Halloween, everyone, as the holiday is finally here
