Movie Info

Writer/director Brian O'Hara updates the monster movie with a new low in bad taste in the low-budget schlock horror comedy Rock 'N' Roll Frankenstein. Record producer Bernie (Barry Feterman) is tired of his typical musician clientele, so he enlists the help of his necrophiliac mad scientist nephew, Frankie (Jayson Spence), to help him create the perfect rock star. Drug-addicted assistant Iggy (Hiram Jacob Segarra) starts grave-robbing assorted body parts from dead rock & roll legends, including Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, and Sid Vicious, topped off with the head of Elvis Presley. In a grotesque send up of Young Frankenstein, clumsy Iggy accidentally destroys a particularly male body part from Jim Morrison, secretly switching it with the corresponding part from Liberace. When the creature is brought to life, and named the King (Graig Guggenheim), it quickly develops a dangerous sexual dysfunction due to conflicting desires. Soon, the King's manhood develops a mind of its own and the creature is driven to serious destruction.

Critic Reviews for Rock 'N' Roll Frankenstein

All Critics (5)

Intent on offending virtually any viewer out there, though those with open minds and strong constitutions may find themselves guiltily enjoying themselves.

But a film this scatological, sacrilegious and down-right gross will not be something that many filmgoers will be able to stomach.

Audience Reviews for Rock 'N' Roll Frankenstein

½

In this quirky low-budget shocker, greedy music producer Bernie Stein is eager to get back in the fame game and enlists his nephew Frankie Stein (get it?) to reconstruct the perfect man, build by the body parts of dead musicians, like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and others. Stoner roadie Iggy (played by Hiram Jacob Segarra, one of the comical highlights of this film) is sent out with some fellow roadies to steal all the body parts. They wind up botching the biggest job of all when they foolishly break Morrison's penis and steal Liberace's instead. The end result is a sexually confused and frustrated Rock & Roll Monster. Though the process is slow at first, the Monster becomes a musical legend but it a tortured soul behind closed doors as he fights with his gay penis (who talks and has a mind of it's own), which craves dudes, whereas the Monster craves women. His life starts to spin out of control, taken all the others with him on this whimsically sick yet comical journey. As one might guess, this film is low-budget to the nines, with comical acting and effects. What a lot of narrow-minded movie goers may not see though is Rock & Roll Frankenstein has it's charms, even with all the vulgar adult content. The end result is a pretty fun movie that's eerily reminiscent of the work of Frank Henenlotter. Overall, quite a fun hidden gem that avid horror movie fans like myself should try and seek out.
