When the Rocky Horror Picture Show premiered in 1975, few could have imagined the incredible cult status it would attain.
But its celebration of gender-bending, sexual freedom and over-the-top camp earned it a special place in the hearts of outsiders, and midnight screenings became a cinema staple — constantly welcoming new generations of fans into its fabulously freaky world. Now Fox is celebrating an incredible 40 years of the film playing in theaters by bringing Brad, Janet, Rocky and the whole singing, dancing crew to life in an all-new production set to air October 20 — just in time to get everyone in the Halloween spirit. The amazing cast includes pop stars (Adam Lambert as Eddie, pictured), theatrical royalty (Ben Vereen as Dr. Scott) and glamorous trans icon Laverne Cox in the role of a lifetime as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Tim Curry (star of the original) will even make an appearance as the narrator. This is one time warp we can’t wait to do again. fox.com
