The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: ‘Frankenhooker’ (1990)


Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

Talking VHS Box!

Body parts, super crack, and whores – oh my!

Frank Henenlotter is quite an interesting director. Over the years he’s brought us such classics as Basket Case and Brain Damage; movies known for their over-the-top wackiness as well as some good bloody bits to sate gorehounds’ appetite. Namely among these fantastic films is a little feature that has to be seen to be believed. Of course I’m speaking of 1990’s Frankenhooker. A tale of a mad “doctor” desperate to piece back together his recently deceased fiancé will have you laughing and wincing. Perfection.
