Frankenhooker

Frankenhooker

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.

There's a lot you can say about this film. Absurb, silly, but you can also add classic to the list as well. This is one film that holds up well despite some of the visual flaws.

Has a great energy to it and some funny gags but it lacks the creepiness of Basket Case or the weirdness of Brain Damage.

Loved it, especially after I read that Bill Fucking Murray was a fan. Great cheese, nudity, and fun in all the right places! A horror movie NO! but a happy go lucky dark comedy, with paying homage to old horror classics like Frankenstein and reanimator.
