The cult horror-comedy will rise on Blu-ray this November.
In an early announcement to retailers, Synapse Films has just announced 'Frankenhooker' for Blu-ray on November 22.
“If you only see one movie this year, it should be 'Frankenhooker.'” - Bill Murray ('Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' 'Stripes')
From Frank Henenlotter, the creator of the 'Basket Case' trilogy and 'Brain Damage,' comes 'Frankenhooker,' a gory horror-comedy twist on the Frankenstein legend.
When Jeffrey Franken’s fiancée is chopped to pieces by the blades of a remote-controlled lawnmower, he uses his dubious medical knowledge to try to bring her back to life. He reassembles his beloved Elizabeth using the body parts of New York City’s finest prostitutes, and resurrects her during a heavy lightning storm. Unfortunately for Jeffrey, his dear Elizabeth’s brain is scrambled and she runs amok on 42nd Street, turning tricks and bringing high-voltage death to her customers!
Synapse Films is proud to present the uncut version of 'Frankenhooker' in an all-new 2K high-definition transfer created from original vault materials and digitally re-mastered 5.1 surround sound!
The region-free Blu-ray will also include: Audio Commentary with Director Frank Henenlotter and Make-Up Effects Designer Gabe Bartalos, A Salad That Was Once Named Elizabeth - Patty Mullen Featurette, A Stitch In Time: The Make-up Effects of Frankenhooker - Featurette, Turning Tricks: Jennifer Delora Remembers Frankenhooker - Featurette, Original Theatrical Trailer, and Reversible/Alternate Cover Artwork.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.95.
