Music agent Bernie Stein (Barry Feterman) has grown fed up with the
business after yet another "star" has left his stable, so he
figures he'd just hire his nephew Frankie (Jayson Spence), a brilliant
scientist who has fallen out of grace with the science community due to
his necrophilic tendencies, to make him the perfect rock star out of the
bodyparts of only the best (yet deceased) rockers there were. So it's
parts of Jimi Hendrix, Sid Vicious, Buddy Holly and more, with the brain
of Elvis Presley, and the pecker of Jim Morrison ... well, almost anyways
as Frankie's assistant Iggy (Hiram Jacob Segarra) manages to destroy the
part when trying to steal it, so he comes off with another dick instead.
result of this experiment: King (Graig Guggenheim), who after some initial
difficulties manages to adjust, becomes the new rock sensation, uniting
many a music style in his tunes. Thing is, he also takes to playing cheesy
piano music, likes candelabras, and he's not able to have sex with women.
Thing is, he's not gay, Elvis's brain in his head is hetero as can be ...
just his penis is. And since men do at least part of their thinking with
their dicks, the King's dick soon talks back to him. Now this all is bad
enough, but it's worse that eventually, King, confused as he is, starts
killing his would-be sexual partners, male and femalel. The secret behind
this is of course this, after Iggy destroyed Jim Morrison's dick, he just
snatched Liberace's instead, and Liberace is very much at odds with King's
womanizing ways and puts his own spin on things ...
Now ok, Rock'n'Roll
Frankenstein isn't the most brain-heavy film ever, nor does it break
new ground regarding genre or music, and it will probably not become a
genuine genre classic either - but heck, what did you expect from a movie
with this title. What Rock'n'Roll Frankenstein does rather very
well is to entertain with a slightly silly story that fits the title quite
perfectly, and jokes that might be of the bad taste variety more often
than not - but hey, it's a horror comedy, so don't expect all subtlety.
ultimately sum this up, Rock'n'Roll Frankenstein is a film to be
watched with beer (or similar alcoholic beverages) and to be shown at
parties, there's plenty in this to laugh about, the music's really
alright, and the film's intentional silliness is really infectuous. With
that in mind, cheers!!!
