Movie Info

Funnyman Steve Oedekerk wrote and directed this follow-up to his comic shorts Thumbtanic and Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle , in which one of the all times classic tales of terror gets a make-over -- as performed by a cast of thumbs! Mad doctor Frankenthumb and his deformed assistant Humpy bring to life a monster named Pepper, featuring a mal-formed brain and a body stitched together from the recently deceased. It doesn't take long for Pepper to make trouble in Frankenthumb's small village, and soon the creature gets the thumbs-down from angry villagers.

Audience Reviews for Frankenthumb


Frankenthumb is my least favorite of the Thumb parodies, but it's still a decent and generally funny film that does a good job of making fun of the classic monster film. While the story and humor could use more tweaking, this film generally works well since it mostly retains the random sense of humor of the other parody films. If you liked the other Thumb films, you should like this one.

very funny, with great moments of comedy, and some great effects as usual

Another fairly entertaining little 'Thumb' movie. The sets and effects are the best in the series, but it's ultimately not as funny as some of the other titles. Good watch to kill thirty minutes.
