1971, Paramount, 89 min, USA, Dir: John D. Hancock

In this hallucinatory classic, a young woman with a troubled emotional past moves into an old New England farmhouse to start over. The problem is that she quickly begins having terrifying encounters in the house, and director John Hancock keeps both the characters and the audience guessing as to whether or not she’s imagining things. With a brilliantly haunting performance by Zohra Lampert.

1990, 85 min, Dir: Frank Henenlotter

From the director of BASKET CASE, comes a FRANKENSTEIN adaptation for the 42nd Street grindhouse set. Brilliant scientist Jeffrey is distraught after his fiancée Elizabeth is killed by a freak lawnmower accident. With only her severed head, Jeffrey decides he must rebuild the love of his life, but he needs body parts. In order to collect the parts, Jeffrey gives unsuspecting prostitutes crack cocaine that causes them to explode. With the pick of streetwalker body parts, Jeffrey rebuilds and re-animates Elizabeth. But instead of bringing back his fiancée, Jeffrey has created a super human undead hooker looking to turn tricks.
