She’s not a bride and she’s not Boris Karloff…she’s Frankenhooker!

The cinematic life of Frankenstein continues in this offbeat 1990 movie where a young medical student sets out to revive the decapitated head of his dead fiancee with, you guessed it, the body parts of prostitutes. As it always is when trying to make a person from scratch, first you have to do the gruesome task of gathering these body parts and, then, you have to deal with the monster you’ve created. All camp and slutty, Frankenhooker leads us through New York bars, streets, and subway on one sewn together sexy adventure. Some things are better off left dead.

Part of Nitehawk’s October SCIENCE! midnite and brunch series.
