Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Disgusting? Yes. Obscene? Oh, certainly. Likely to deprave and corrupt? Paul Morrissey absolutely hopes so. And above all else, wildly funny."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"To say that the film is for specialized tastes understates the case. It's simply a gloriously decadent, degenerate joke that you either get, or you don't."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"pure camp taken to the highest extremes with a careful and purposeful hand"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"The copious entrails-spillage is lyrically positioned for the 3-D effects"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"It succeeds only in being raunchy."

‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"Morrissey's grotesque, ravishing film situates the Frankenstein story squarely in the world of the Freudian uncanny."
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
