This title is out of print, but we have another version available here: Flesh for Frankenstein

Incest, necrophilia, and Joe Dallesandro? It must be Andy Warhol. Warhol did indeed co-produce this 1973 schlock spectacular -- originally presented in 3D -- that was directed by Factory fave Paul Morrissey. Starring Udo Kier in the role of "Ze Baron," Flesh for Frankenstein is a horror story for a new 'n' lewd generation. This time around, the mad scientist has created the nymphomaniacally-inclined Adam and Eve, whose mission it is to spawn a new race. Along for the ride --somewhat literally -- is a lusty stable boy (Dallesandro) who main duty it is to entertain the Baron's equally lusty wife/sister. Sex, gore, unconvincing bat attacks, and the highest camp this side of the Appalachian Trail combine for a dizzyingly outrageous midnight movie. Flesh for Frankenstein got a second chance at life when it was screened at the 2002 Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, All Movie Guide

I can't say I was surprised by hotpant August 14, 2006 - 11:13 AM PDT

FfF was moderately entertaining. I loved all the shock-meat that was tossed around. Winn Dixie must have had a steak sale that weekend. Though an interesting twist on a classic, the twists were dully predicatable. The un-reality of the events and barely passable special effects were further negatively enforced by Dallesandro's North American accent and taxi-driver persona that was thrust right into the 18th century German maw. In the end, it turned out to be embarassingly desperate for a gasp that I was really reluctant to inhale. Bring it out for your cheese-fest Halloween party but otherwise, keep it at a rental.

This title is currently unavailable on disc or is no longer in-print.

A difficult task but somebody had to do it. I haven't seen the whole collection but I'm working on it. These are my favorites thus far.
