Finding a girl when you re a nerdy science geek can be hard. But what happens if that special someone dies in a bizarre gardening accident and it s all your fault?
Meet Jeffrey Franken. He's just killed the love of his life and now he s going to rebuild her... From the body parts of the dead streetwalkers who exploded when he introduced them to a lethal new drug Supercrack! Little does he know that a good recipe requires the correct ingredients. Jeffrey isn t putting his life back together; he's building... a FRANKENHOOKER!
From the twisted imagination of Frank Henenlotter (Basketcase) and starring James Lorinz (Street Trash), comes a movie that pays a loving tribute to the worst excesses of the American Grindhouse.

Best label 2011
"It's often the smaller-funded labels that do the best work. Arrow has released marvellous discs of many of cinema's classics, such as Bicycle Thieves, Rififi and Les Diaboliques, but it's for their horror releases that they truly excel. The more respectable directors like George A Romero and Dario Argento get their due here, but Arrow also pull out all the stops for such (unfairly) lesser regarded Gore-teurs as Lucio Fulci and Frank Henenlotter. Blu-rays of Fulci classics The Beyond and City Of The Living Dead show that the films are far more atmospheric and better made than they ever appeared before, and for Henenlotter (with the imminent Frankenhooker disc) you get extensive extras that cover the rarely examined scene of low-budget New York film-makers and the lost grindhouses of Times Square and 42nd Street."
