    This was kinda funny and deserves a place in cult filmdom.

    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.

    I'm only giving it 2 stars because it made me laugh...with pity for the actors and whomever thought this would be a good movie.

    Body parts of rock legends are melded together in order to make the father of all musicians. The only catch- a drug-fueled assistant messes up orders to steal the private parts of Jim Morrison and gets those of Liberace. Sound riveting? It isn't.
