This Should Be Illegal  

MTV is about to commit first-degree murder by remaking the cult classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” That’s our cue to go back to bed. This is obviously a bad nightmare and we must wake up.

The ugly and mean whores at MTV said they will use the original screenplay, but may add new music. GOD NO! They are aiming for a Halloween 2009 release. So, it’s official. October 31, 2009 is the day we all spontaneously combust.

Casting has not yet been announced.

At least they are not starting with the original film and just digitally adding extras.

Urge to kill... RISING!

Seriously, how could they even consider doing such a thing? Those that love the original will hate it, anyone new to it won't get it, all the jokes and campiness that make the original great will be lost... I could go on...

I have terrifying visions of lanky teenage misanthropes wearing corsets and fishnets while singing off key to time warp, strolling down the lane at Faire. Sigh

Really....
If they don't stop messing with the things I liked while growing up - I'm going to have to go down there and punch some people out....

I can't believe it. Why would they think this will even be successful? They can get away with remaking some of the things from decades past, but this is not one of them.

Horrible, just horrible. I agree with Sagebearz about the clueless teens. I wager that MTV will not include WHY the RHPS was important in cinematic history. Why would they? That would so border on educational!

Let's hope it flops like a dead fish.
