Directed by Frank Henenlotter
An amateur scientist uses the bodies of dead hookers to revive his dead girlfriend, but gets a big surprise when those bad girls' body parts bring out the worst in his innocent sweetheart. BASKET CASE and BAD BIOLOGY director Frank Henenlotter's outrageously funny cult horror favorite became an unlikely VHS hit in 1990, with Bill Murray himself famously proclaiming, "If you see one movie this year, it should be Frankenhooker." Solid advice then - and now. Don't miss this raunchy and ridiculous good time that'll have you steering clear of the red-light district. Contains strong language and sexual scenes.

I do want a date
All the years seeing this movie at the video stores, I never paid much attention because I thought it would be dumb… So I was way off on that. Now I rarely see a movie that makes me actually laugh out loud, but this one did. And anyone that classifies this as a “so bad it’s good” movie is also WAY OFF. This is a genuinely hilarious horror film. There are some great scenes, like the hookers in the motel room, but the real brilliance lies with Patty Mullen’s performance… THAT TWITCH… It’s effing brilliant. Her natural talent with physical comedy puts her up there with Buster Keaton for having that sense of what slight movements or facial expressions can be hilarious in themselves. Plus, the continual “WANNA PARTY?? GOIN’ OUT? GOT ANY MONEY??” is so genius in the way she says it. This movie deserves 5 skulls based on her performance alone… Not to mention how gorgeous she looks in… purple…
i love this movie funny as hell
Really good for a B movie. Joseph Gonzalez's (Zorro) line deliveries were perfect and made me chuckle every time he was on screen
