Want a date? Got any money?? Join your horror hosts Kim & Jon as they analyze the lasting legacy of mad scientists and their undead creations with Frank Henenlotter’s Frankenhooker (1990).
We’ve wrapped our Classic Universal Monster tour through the tormented town of Frankenstein and now, we pair those macabre melodramas with a modern masterpiece of bad taste and morbid hilarity. Frankenhooker is everything you expect it to be (and more!). It stitches together grimy Time Square hustlers and immature jokes, but it’s also a surprisingly faithful re-imagining of James Whale’s Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and a 100,000 volt blast at prudish policy makers of the late 1980s. It’s also busting at the seams with mad sciencery, clever references for the Frankenstein obsessed, and a high-camp Bride of with pale skin and a purple skirt 🤩 Join usssss
