Any fears die-hard The Rocky Horror Picture Show fans might've had about Fox's take on the beloved musical got shot and buried six feet deep Thursday after a tantalizing new trailer was released.

Laverne Cox, who plays Dr. Frank-N-Furter, straight up slays throughout the clip, vamping and cooing and playing to a wild theater audience.

Tim Curry will return to the Rocky Horror Picture Show as the narrator of the Fox special

The teaser for the update on the cult classic also offers glimpses of Tim Curry, the original Frank-N-Furter, Victoria Justice (who'll play Janet) Ryan McCartan (who plays Brad) and some delicious costumes. (I mean, is Laverne working those fishnets or what?) There's also the briefest snippet of the "Time Warp" song -- but just enough to keep us panting for more until Rocky Horror is released Oct. 20.
