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.
A new teaser trailer has been released for Penny Dreadful, the upcoming Showtime series from the filmmakers behind movies like Gladiator, American Beauty, and Skyfall, John Logan and Sam Mendes.
We’ve seen teasers for the show before, but this is the longest of them so far, and the most like an actual trailer. With the series set to premiere on May 11th a full trailer should be coming fairly soon, but for now this is our best look at the show, which is described as a “psychosexual horror” that brings together literary icons such as Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and Count Dracula.
You can check out the new teaser trailer for Penny Dreadful below.
It’s not much, but a new teaser trailer has been released for Penny Dreadful, an upcoming psychological thriller from Showtime.
The show is described as a “psychosexual horror,” and weaves together various literary icons such as Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and Count Dracula as they deal with alienation in Victorian London.
Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Starring Reeve Carney, Jennifer Darmiano, Patrick Page
Score by Bono and The Edge
Opening Date: June 14, 2011
Just like in the comics, it seems Spider-Man can’t even catch a break on Broadway. From less than kind reviews to stunt guys getting hurt, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, once a promising musical production, looked like it was going to implode. But, in true Spider-Man fashion, the production dusted itself off and tried again. Now, after a brief hiatus and a rewrite, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark 2.0 begins their preview run once again.
Turn Off The Dark tells the tale of Peter Parker, a high school student bitten by a radioactive spider that gives him super powers. At first, Parker uses his power for personal gain but when tragedy strikes, he learns that with great power must always come great responsibility.
