Shiver With Antici…pation... It's Back

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, is back! Or it will be anyway. A brand-new re imagining of the cult-classic midnight movie 40 years in the making, is set to air this October on Fox! In 1975, a movie starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and Kiwi Richard O'Brien appeared in theaters. It was a total commercial failure - barely anyone saw it.

But years later, the movie was still being played in theaters around the US, generally at midnight, and now it had fans. These weren't your regular moviegoers, though - these fans cross-dressed, sang and danced in the aisles and treated the screenings like interactive Broadway musicals.

Well people, it's time to do the time warp again and travel back to 1975. Enjoy the very first sneak peek trailer for Fox's upcoming remake. The short clip gives a glimpse at Laverne Coxs take on Tim Curry's Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Watch below.

Happy Birthday to Barry Bostwick.
