Tonight's #FirstWatch, FRANKENHOOKER  (dir. Frank Henenlotter) . A TERRIFYING TALE OF SLUTS AND BOLTS. .
A medical school dropout loses his fiancée in a tragic lawnmower incident and decides to bring her back to life. Unfortunately, he was only able to save her head, so he goes to the red light district in the city and lures prostitutes into a hotel room so he can collect body parts to reassemble her. . . . #FRANKENHOOKER #FrankHenenlotter #PattyMullen #BluRay #Horror #HorrorFan
As part of @comicartsbklyn I went to a Bushwick preview of the doc “Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana” about the only artist ever convicted in the US for his artwork. Cult director Frank Henenlotter (“Basket Case”, “Frankenhooker” and “Brain Damage”) teamed up with narrator Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) and fan-boy favourites like director George A.Romero, writer Neil Gaiman and cartoonist Peter Bagge. Insane story about how a “Boiled Angels #6” zine found by a cop at the time of a famous mass murder in the white trash state of Florida sparked a witch hunt. Extreme and shocking art (none of these pics come even close....), but there are horrors in this world that should never be varnished over and sprayed with perfume. A story that needs to be told….I hope the doc finds wide distribution.
