The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Within just a few years, The Rocky Horror Picture Show grew from an oddball musical to a celebrated cinematic experience of midnight features and outrageous audience participation. This study tells the extraordinary story of the film from initial reception to eventual cult status, indeed becoming the classic cult film par excellence. Uncovering the film's non-conformist sexual politics and glam-rock attitude, the book explores its emphasis on the theatrical body (tattooed, cross-gendered, flamboyant), and its defiant queering of cinema history.
