A Bad Taste Spoof Horror Film about Regeneration of Body Parts
on 11 September 2014
This is a low budget, goofball horror film. It is, basically, a completely bonkers adult take on the 80's teen movie, Weird Science. Jeffrey Frankenstein is an obsessive scientist, who has been thrown out of 3 medical schools, and starts experimenting at home on regenerating a dead human brain. He has a girlfriend, Elizabeth, who is killed in a freak accident by a remote control lawn mower. Jeffrey conceals her decapitated head, and then inadvertently kills a group of 8 call girls, using "super crack" cocaine. He then takes body parts from the hookers, in order to create a new body for his dead girlfriend. The actor who plays Jeffrey makes a good fist of the oddball lead character, a man who, for instance, drills into his brain when he's struggling to solve a problem. He manages to bring Elizabeth back to life, but unfortunately, her prostitute body parts control her actions and she's soon on the game, with some electrifying results, quite literally. The remaining body parts of the dispatched hookers gel together into weird creatures, that look like the monster in The Thing, and run amok. At the conclusion of the film, Jeffrey endures a suitably grotesque fate. This is an extremely silly film, one of those ones which is so bad it becomes good. It makes the absolute most of a clearly limited budget. Hollywood should remake this with an actor like Jeff Goldblum playing Jeffrey, and an actress like Cameron Diaz playing Frankenhooker, I'm sure it would be great fun, as the type of movie one watches last thing at night, after having had one too many down the pub.
