9781905674503: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Cultographies)

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.

About the Author:

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).

Review:

Weinstock's book illuminates the ways in which The Rocky Horror Picture Show came to play its central role in the popular imagination as the most easily recognized 'cult film'. (Matthew Tinkcom Science Fiction Film and Television)

Concise, well written and well researched. (Julie Lord Participations: Journal of Audience & Reception Studies)
