Tagline: A Terrifying Tale Of Sluts And Bolts.

Plot: When his pretty fiancee goes to pieces under the blades of a runaway lawnmower, aspiring mad scientist Jeffrey Franken hatches an unorthodox scheme to bring his beloved back to life. He reassembles her using body parts of New York prostitutes. Gory and exploitative, but worth seeing for some New Jersey color, as well as giant pimp Zorro and some murderous "Supercrack."

external linkHighly entertaining and great fun from Basket Case's director with the same warped sense of humour as that series. 3/4

external linkIn this end this is just a fun no-brainer movie to watch with a group of friends. ... A good cheesy horror comedy from director Frank Henenlotter. Lots of gore, and lots of fun. Check this baby out. 7/10
