I only picked this tape up for one reason-- my favorite Penthouse Pet, Susan Napoli, is in it as 'Stephanie Ryan.' Yeah, she's in it for all of five minutes, and doesn't have any lines. She barely has time to take off her top and french-kiss Kimberly Taylor before she explodes! Ah well. Pet of the Year Patty Mullen looks nice too, and she's genuinely funny!  :)

FRANKENHOOKER is by far one of the best "bad" movies of all time. From the talking video box to the extra nudity in the unrated version, this film is chock full of memorable scenes and dialogue. I can't decide between the guy at the bar and Zorro the Pimp as far as who my favorite character is. The guy at the bar says the immortal line, "When a man loses his ho's, he loses everything". To which Zorro replies, "I didn't lose 'em, they just blew up!" Later, Zorro utters my favorite line in the movie. Pounding on the hotel room door, he yells, "Hey b***hes, open up!"

I loved this film! The exploding hooker scene is one of the best scenes in movie history.

I bought this film on DVD the other day. Having read the back of the box it sounded fairly entertaining but how wrong could I have been? Dull, slow, terrible acting and effects. Total s**te.

When I first saw this movie, I did not know what to expect. Now that I have, I have to say that it was not all that bad. Of course a lot of people tell me that Frankenhooker signifies the bottom of the barrel for the Frankenstein genre, but who cares? I enjoyed it. If there was an award for Top B movie of the week, this would get my vote. Does anyone agree? Please let me know Bmoviephiles. Thank you for listening. RENT THIS FILM NOW!

I rented this movie for my semi monthly crappy movie night.  Of the other movies rented: Dolamite, Black Gestapo, and various unsundry others, Frankenhooker was by far the best.  I absolutely loved the super crack.  Every scene in which the pimp is present is rife with fantastic dialogue.  Where's my money at b***h for example.  The movie also takes a controversial, but oh so true look at the seemier side of New York at night.  I recommend it to all.

One of the best dead girl friend, exploding hookers b-movies of all time.  much like the excellent Re-animator (number 1 not 2) but with a different flavor.  Good story with nice turns, and characters with semi-relistic behavior; (for insane people).

4.5 green globs.

Dont praise this movie. Except for the hooker body parts chasing the crack pipe, an amateur peep show would be more entertaining (whens the last time you rented a video for a quarter?)

I know the director (Frank Henlenlotter-Basket Case series), he went to High School with my psychiatrist. Oh, and great gratuitous nudity.Zombie Hooker's rule!

Oh my God, I love this movie! James Lorinz is great as the eccentric mad scientist, jersy boy, jeffery franken and Patty Mullen is awesome as his girlfriend frankenhooker. i seriously think patty mullen looked really cute in that doctor's outfit in the last scene. The Hooker leftovers resemble belial of basket case a little too much, well, at least the honey mutant does. If you love this movie as much as I, send me a message on instant messager at BRAINDEAD DM!

Though it has its cumbersome and slow moments, there is enought zany personality to be found in Frankenhooker to make it worth a look.  One of the most out there satires of Frankenstein (and Jerseyites) made, Frankenhooker makes me wish Frank Hennenlotter would be able to make more movies.

Top film directed by "Basket Case & Brain Damage" Frank Henenlotter. Has some great scenes of whore's exploding and how Frankenhooker begins working the streets, a'la 1987's remake of Blood Feast, "Blood Diner". But tell me would you really want to pick her up?!!

Only for psyched trash-freaks.

You know I first heard about this movie in the 3rd grade from a friend.  All these years I thought it was just an urban legend.  Thank God for the internet.
