    Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case) brings Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to the present day in the fabulous and demented horror comedy Frankenhooker and I loved every minute of it. Jeffrey Frankin is a med school drop-out experimenting with electricity and human body parts, tested to his limits when his fiancée, Elizabeth Shelley, is ripped apart in a lawnmower accident. In search of the perfect body for her, he ultimately tries to collect the right parts from prostitutes... and then we start switching over to Liz's story, as a creature that, not unlike the classic Frankie's plight (if he's built from murderers, does he then have to be one himself), finds herself walking the streets. Everything in this movie is a little arch - plot, characters, set design, ridiculous prosthetic effects - and it's a lot of fun. Henenlotter obviously didn't think Re-Animator was camp enough and decided to pour it on. Everything becomes a target of broad satire. Nothing is to be taken seriously. It's a huge amount of fun. 9 months 1 week ago

    When you hear a title like Frankenhooker, you probably know what to expect.
