"Andy Warhol's Flesh For Frankenstein" is a riot. Even its closing tableau is socially transcendent and transgressive.

The film's gross-out climax has the mad-scientist Baron (Udo Kier) screwing his undead Bride on a gurney, then ravaging Marlon Brando with a spot-on parody of Last Tango.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Morrissey's grotesque, ravishing film situates the Frankenstein story squarely in the world of the Freudian uncanny.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Disgusting? Yes. Obscene? Oh, certainly. Likely to deprave and corrupt? Paul Morrissey absolutely hopes so. And above all else, wildly funny.

One of the worst Frankenstein movies I've seen. Warhol's vampire movie is much better. Still, it's not that horrible, it's okay.
