Written by Bob Martin with director Frank Henenlotter, Frankenhooker use to be a late night staple on cable in the early 1990s. Starring Playboy playmate Patty Mullen as the title character, the cult classic re-imagines Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for the “bridge and tunnel” crowd. Oddly enough, Mullen doesn’t get top billing for this b-movie black comedy, but make no mistake…she owns this film every ludicrous second she’s on screen.
Quick warning: Embedded below is the uncut version, which means more boobies and more blood. This is not safe for work. But…hey, that’s why we love it.
Happy Halloween, kids.
