Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 06/15/1990
"There is a legitimate sense of the absurd lurking within [FRANKENHOOKER]....Fun to see around midnight..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/01/1990
"...Hilarious, totally outrageous....Henenlotter gets extraordinarily well-sustained, straight-faced portrayals from his stars..."
When his pretty fiancee goes to pieces under the blades of a runaway lawnmower, aspiring mad scientist Jeffrey Franken hatches an unorthodox scheme to bring his beloved back to life. He reassembles her using body parts of New York prostitutes. Gory and exploitative, but worth seeing for some New Jersey color, as well as giant pimp Zorro and some murderous "Supercrack."
After accidentally killing his girlfriend with a remote-controlled lawnmower, mild-mannered utilities employee and part-time mad scientist Jeffrey Franken sets out to resurrect his beloved by transplanting her head to the body of an unsuspecting prostitute.
