Starring James Lorinz, Patty Mullen, Joanne Ritchie
From the deranged depths of sleazemeister Frank Henenlotter’s imagination comes this wildly subversive camp-horror take on the classic Mary Shelley tale. After he loses his fiancée in a deadly lawnmower accident, a med-school dropout (James Lorinz)—having managed to salvage only her head—hits upon an outrageous scheme for procuring the rest of the body parts he needs to revivify her. But having assembled his creation—cobbled together from the remains of accidentally exploded sex workers—he now must struggle to control her as she runs rampant across the seedy New York night world bringing death to the hapless men she meets.
