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. Uncovering the film's non-conformist sexual politics and glam-rock attitude, this volume explores its emphasis on the theatrical body (tattooed, cross-gendered, flamboyant), and its defiant queering of cinema history.

Jeffrey Weinstock is Assistant Professor of American literature and culture at Central Michigan University. He is the editor of Spectral America: Phantoms and the National Imagination (2004) and The Nothing That Is: Millennial Cinema and the Blair Witch Controversies (2004).
