Andy Warhol's Frankenstein


1h 36m 1992

Brief Synopsis

Udo Kier is the Baron Frankenstein, attempting to create a new race of humans out of body parts. He wants to mate his male creation to his female creation so he figures he needs the brain of a real lady's man. By mistake, he beheads a man about to enter a monastery to become a monk. The creature shows no interest in his female companion, but the Baron's sex starved wife shows interest in him. He ends up killing her squeezing her to death while they are performing sex. In the finale, the Baron has his hand smashed off by an iron gate and a spear struck through him with his liver dangling on the end. This film is filled with lots of soft core porn, nudity, and splatter.

Quotes

To know death Otto, you have to fuck life in the gallbladder.
- Baron Frankenstein
The medical profession would love to claim my achievement as part of their own and call it a giant stride forward of medicine. But they can't. It is a giant stride forward for me!
- Baron Frankenstein
We failed! That beautiful Serbian female! Everybody would have jumped--everyone! But maybe that head of that...creature wasn't any good! His perfect nose! His perfect nose! He has the perfect brain, he was the king I wanted, and we failed! We have to try it again! Otto, we have to try it again! I am going to prove that we can do it! We waited for so long!
- Baron Frankenstein
Make him unconscious, but don't kill him, or damage his head in any way. I need his brain for my zombie! I am sure it has the right instincts we want!
- Baron Frankenstein

Trivia

Originally filmed in 3D, although most presentations found today are in 2D.

The two films, "Flesh For Frankenstein" and Blood for Dracula (1974), shared many of the same sets and the same principal cast (Joe Dallesandro, Udo Kier, and Arno Juerging).
