Product Description

From Frank Henenlotter, the creator of the BASKET CASE trilogy and BRAIN DAMAGE, comes FRANKENHOOKER, a gory horror-comedy twist on the Frankenstein legend.

When 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. He reassembles his beloved Elizabeth using the body parts of New York City's finest prostitutes, and resurrects her during a heavy lightning storm. 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!

Synapse Films is proud to present the uncut version of FRANKENHOOKER in an all-new 2K high-definition transfer created from original vault materials and digitally re-mastered 5.1 surround sound!

#1 rocky horror picture show #2 attack of the killer tomatoes Finally we come to one of the funniest horror(whore?) movies of all time. the acting is terrible!, but you must appreciate it for the low, low budget they had. from the begining, the main character is poking at a brain with a big eyeball in it, and his girlfriend just goes along with everyday life. it wonderful. all the action starts when she gets run over by the lawnmower that her boyfriend made for her father as a birthday present. the boyfriend decides to "collect" hookers with the right body parts to form a new girlfriend. he invents a "super-crack" to kill them,
----one of the greatest plot elements in any movie i have ever seen---EVER!!

Frankenhooker, it just sounds like a good time, doesn't it? I've been waiting for this dvd for a long time now. I saw this film way back when it first came out. Most folks who also saw it back then might remember the cool vhs box that said, "Wanna Date?" when you pressed it. That was a great little gimmick, wasn't it? That kind of thing was never done much, but I do remember the box for the movie The Dead Pit(which sucked by the way, or at least it couldn't live up to it's cool cover) which had the puffed out 3-D zombie on the cover who's eyes would flash green when you squeezed the box. If anyone can remember any more of those cool vhs boxes, let me know. Anyway, I was confident that Frankenhooker would hold up after all these years and it still does. Frankenhooker is the kind of film that Drive-in theaters were made for. As the title suggests, this isn't a movie taking itself seriously. It was directed by Frank Henenlotter, the B movie crusader who brought us Basket case and Brain Damage. If you've seen either of those films and thought they were dumb, you might as well stay away from Frankenhooker coz it's in the same vein. Frankenhooker herself doesn't show up til about an hour into the film, but that's all fine and dandy coz there's enough bare breasts, exploding hookers(and guinea pigs), musclebound pimps, huge crack rocks and head drilling to keep you entertained. Plus the zany, mumbling performance by James Lorinz as the mad doctor really carries the movie along. He's got some pretty damn funny lines, especially in the scene where he's inspecting the hookers. Frankenhooker herself is an amusing parody of Elsa Lanchester's Bride Of Frankenstein performance.Read more ›

I experienced the joy of getting this HD release a bit early. Don May and Synapse Films have delivered the goods yet again.

The picture quality is of the highest class with a very filmic look. It's Blu-rays like this that make me wish I had the space (and the money) for a proper home theater room with projector. There's a very fine layer of grain present that looks natural but unobtrusive, the remainder of the image very detailed and representative of its film roots. There are some emulsion scratches here and there, but nothing that will take away one's enjoyment. A little more scratch cleanup would have been appreciated in this case, but it's not a problem.

Most of the extras from the Unearthed Films DVD have been carried over, save for a short five-minute photo gallery and some trailers for other films. The exciting trailer for "Frankenhooker" is thankfully in HD; I wish more companies would follow Synapse's example and offer HD trailers of the films, particularly when it comes to these cult classics.

The film itself, if you haven't seen it, is a riot--very quirky humor with a bit of a twisted side. I can't imagine anybody not laughing at the exploding hookers scene, or the female body part monsters toward the end (including what special effects artist Gabe Bartalos named "the Titty Twister"--you'd have to see it to get it). The special effects in these scenes are well-made and with high comical effect. No gore here, just hokey fun. It's difficult to really call this a horror film; whereas Henenlotter's other films--the "Basket Case" series, "Brain Damage", and "Bad Biology"--all exhibit rather horrific subject matter and scenes fused with the humor, "Frankenhooker" is straight-up comedy.

Well after recently watching "Brain Damage" I began to like this guy Frank Henenlotter. This is one of the most unique movies I've ever seen. A little about the story: Jeffrey's girlfriend Elizabeth suffers a terrible misfortune at the hands of a lawnmower. Jeffrey saves Elizabeth's head, and goes in search of other body parts to put her back together. He makes super crack and some hookers smoke it and begin to blow up. He then uses their parts to rebuild Elizabeth. The hookers pimp Zorro becomes suspicious and goes after Jeffrey...
This is truly one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. The best movie I've seen in a while, and I've seen a lot. This is one of the most, if not the most unique horror comedy I've ever seen. If you are looking for a movie with an interesting story, plenty of nudity, and lots of exploding bodyparts, then look no further...Frankenhooker is here! I would also recommend Brain Damage (if you can still find it). Hope my review was helpful. This is definetely the funnest movie I've watched in a long time. Oh and by the way, it is a region one NTSC DVD.
