Calling all villagers with pitchforks! It’s DUMB FRANKENSTEIN MONTH at Mondo Mondays, celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelly’s literary creation with a re-animated array of fun-loving Frankie Flicks you’ll just be dying to see!
“It’s a Stitch!” When Jersey boy Jeffrey Franken’s fiancée is chopped to pieces by the blades of a remote-controlled lawnmower, he uses his dubious medical knowledge to try to bring her back to life. Never one to back down from a bad idea, he reassembles his beloved Elizabeth using the “borrowed” body parts of New York City’s finest prostitutes, and resurrects her during a heavy lightning storm.
“A wonderfully insane flick that’s wild and crazy and genuinely funny. Do yourself a favor and make a date with Frankenhooker.” – Horror Freak
Unfortunately for Jeffrey, his dear Elizabeth’s brain is scrambled and she runs amok on 42nd Street, turning tricks and bringing high-voltage death to her customers! And let’s not forget the hijinks caused by a hot new street drug called Super Crack, which has the unfortunate side-effect of causing crack-smoking hookers to explode. Yes, explode. A hilarious, deliriously goofy B-movie twist on the Frankenstein legend filled with nudity, power tools to the head, severed rubber limbs galore, and the undeniably thrilling sight of an undead streetwalker stomping through Times Square on massive platform shoes yelling “WANNA DATE?” at horrified onlookers, Frankenhooker is the shoulda-been-a-franchise horror/comedy that really gives you what you want … and then some! From the twisted mind that brought you Basket Case and Brain Damage! (Dir. by Frank Henenlotter, 1990, USA, 85 mins., Rated R)
