Synapse continues to build their impressive hi-def catalog with the addition of Frankenhooker on November 8th. Following last week’s release of The Exterminator (which looks fucking great on blu!) and the October release of Maniac Cop, Frankenhooker looks to be another solid entry in Synapse’s growing Blu-ray canon.
From Frank Henenlotter, the creator of the BASKET CASE trilogy and BRAIN DAMAGE, comes FRANKENHOOKER,
a gory horror-comedy twist on the Frankenstein legend.
When Jeffrey Franken’s fiancée is chopped to pieces by the blades of a remote-controlled lawnmower, he uses his dubious medical knowledge to try to bring her back to life. He reassembles his beloved Elizabeth using the body parts of New York City’s finest prostitutes, and resurrects her during a heavy lightning storm. Unfortunately for Jeffrey, his dear Elizabeth’s brain is scrambled and she
runs amok on 42nd Street, turning tricks and bringing high-voltage death to
Synapse Films is proud to present the uncut version of FRANKENHOOKER in an all-new 2K high-definition transfer created from original vault materials and digitally re-mastered 5.1 surround sound!
