Matt Baume Takes a deep dive into The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the night that the underground cult classic changed his life.

But within a few years, it found a new life as an underground phenomenon where everyone dresses up, shouts along, participates in rituals — like a Catholic mass but for drama club kids. So how did that happen? ”
