Incest, necrophilia, and Joe Dallesandro? It must be Andy Warhol. Warhol did indeed co-produce this 1973 schlock spectacular -- originally presented in 3D -- that was directed by Factory fave Paul Morrissey. Starring Udo Kier in the role of "Ze Baron," Flesh for Frankenstein is a horror story for a new 'n' lewd generation. This time around, the mad scientist has created the nymphomaniacally-inclined Adam and Eve, whose mission it is to spawn a new race. Along for the ride --somewhat literally --

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Disgusting? Yes. Obscene? Oh, certainly. Likely to deprave and corrupt? Paul Morrissey absolutely hopes so. And above all else, wildly funny.
The copious entrails-spillage is lyrically positioned for the 3-D effects
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.
To say that the film is for specialized tastes understates the case. It's simply a gloriously decadent, degenerate joke that you either get, or you don't.
Morrissey's grotesque, ravishing film situates the Frankenstein story squarely in the world of the Freudian uncanny.
