When The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released in 1975 it initially received an indifferent reception in movie theatres but began to gain notoriety after it was embraced by audiences at midnight screenings in New York City and elsewhere.
 
A homage to campy B-movies, sci-fi, and horror films, the movie was – and still is – more than the sum of its parts. In the four decades since its release, it has become a cultural phenomenon, not to mention one of the most commercially successful films of all time.
 
In this volume, editor Marisa C. Hayes brings together a diverse group of writers who explore the film’s influence on the development of the pastiche tribute film, emerging queer activism of the 1970s, glam rock style, and the creative use of audience dialogue in recreating and interacting with the spoken and sung language of the film. Spotlighting a cult phenomenon and its fans, this will be essential reading for anyone who has ever done the ‘Time Warp’.
 
Marisa C. Hayes is a Franco-American film scholar specializing in dance films and genre cinema. Her writing has appeared in numerous books and journals.
