Halloween playlist #14 - Frankenhooker (1990)

From the director of Basket Case and Brain Damage, this movie is pretty much everything you could expect from a movie called "Frankenhooker", and then some. This was my first viewing of the film, and I can say without hesitation that it is in fact my favorite of the three.

As a fan of over-the-top cheese, this movie was more than satisfactory. Though Frankenhooker doesn't make her appearance until the last 20-30 minutes, the time leading up to this is well-spent developing the lead character and offering plenty of laughs in the process. This is a surprisingly well-written movie that doesn't just rely solely on its gimmick to be entertaining. The effects, though thoroughly cheesy, work well considering the subject matter. This isn't the best, but it's certainly one of the more fun Frankenstein derived films I've seen.

8/10
