If you make it to the end of the song, it does end with a close-up of Levan’s red-lacquered lips singing the final lines. Presumably the folks behind the reboot want to pay tribute to the original film’s popularity even as they try to do something different—a policy, we suspect, which will like be the case throughout the production.


Still, the solo by the lips was the perfectly eerie/titillating/goofy way to begin the 1975 film, and they’ll be missed. The Rocky Horror Picture Show airs October 20 on Fox.
