Hot Patootie - Fox gives us another look at their Rocky Horror Picture Show
To this point, the only real look we've gotten at Fox's remake of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW set for this fall has been "The Time Warp" or bust. But now that we're getting a little closer to October, the broadcast network is rolling out a little bit more at a time as they start promoting the film more heavily.
Today we've got something new to sink our teeth into, as we get to see snippets of the remake's renditions of "Dammit Janet," "Sweet Transvestite" and "Hot Patootie," and while they don't sound all that bad, it's still the flashy look of the film that has me distracted. It's so shiny and clean, and hardly feels like the work of misfits - which is part of the appeal of ROCKY HORROR. However, I am firmly convinced that Laverne Cox is going to be absolute fire as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. What we see here is more than enough to sell me on the fact that she's going to carry this redo.
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE is scheduled to air on October 20.
