Reading Rocky Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture

Front Cover
Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock
Palgrave Macmillan, Nov 15, 2008 - Performing Arts - 248 pages

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is undeniably the world’s most famous “cult film,” yet it has received very little scrutiny or consideration from scholars.. Reading Rocky Horror is the first edited collection devoted to The Rocky Horror Picture Show and makes up for academia’s neglect of this cult classic by assembling a variety of accessible contributions that examine the film from diverse perspectives including gender and queer studies, disability studies, cultural studies, genre studies, and film studies.
