#2

The movie wasn’t the only thing that got made


#3

Come on, it’s a classic. (I have seen it)


#4

Did they throw in the bit at 1:07 just for the folks who get turned on by John Carpenter movies?

48 AM


#5

Isn’t that kind of the plot of everything from Metropolis to Weird Science? Hardly surprising. Also, Rule 34 and all that.

But remember: technically it’s Frankenhooker’s Monster, the creation of Dr. Frankenhooker.


#6

A Terrifying T


#7

James Lorinz always seemed like the B-movie answer to Andrew McCarthy to me.


#8

Everyone has seen this movie, haven’t they?
If not, why not?


#9

This movie got made.

Is that a question?


#10

Not only made but made with a TALKING BOX

If you pressed the button, it said her only catch line “Wanna date?”

Also, I’d say the whole movie was readable as a feminist cautionary tale for men on the whole madonna/whore body-image thing too. Been a long time since I watched it though so I am open to being challenged on that too.


#11

With Louise Lasser in the credits? I want a date!


#12

'D be something to tell the grand-kids.

“In my day the hookers weren’t made from just one woman, up hill, in the snow, both ways.”


#13

At least true love prevails. (NSFW) & spoilers


#14

The middle act was a little slow, but I tried to judge it on its artistic merits personally. Some very avant-garde, near ground breaking stuff.


#15

Basket Case and Brain Damage are better, but this one was fun.


#16

Well all know the answer starts “A mommy movie and a daddy move who love each other very much …”


#17

has to be one of the greatest written and delivered lines in cinema history right there…

“Where’s my johnson?!”

I am waiting for 45 to retroactively force the Academy to recognize this and give Oscars to all.

Frankenhooker: A Modern Pro


#19

This movie got made.

Well sure it did, where’ve you been?


#20

Didn’t you see where they said “from the makers of Basket Case”? If they’re servicing fans it’s their own.
