After his wife’s death in a land-mower accident, inventor Jeff Franken tries to bring her back to life by recreating her body piece by piece, using prostitutes. But the raw material starts influencing the new personality of the rebuilt wife.

With this new take on Frankenstein, Henenlotter the troublemaker teases the American way of life and  the decorum of the bourgeoisie. A monument of graphic excess, filled with sex, drugs, and loony situations (using drills and explosive guinea pigs), illuminated by the amazing performance of Patty Mullen as the Frankenhooker.
