Andy Warhol Presents Frankenstein

'The goriest, sexiest and wildest Frankenstein ever filmed.'

Directed by Paul Morrissey and produced by Andy Warhol,filmed in the famous Cinecitta by a crew of Italian master filmmakers, Andy Warhol's Frankenstein is suffused with the crumbling glamour of old Italian films, paying homage to (while simultaneously parodying) the earnest and stark visual and psychological beauty of the horror films on which it is based. Morrissey's sense of ironic detachment gives the film a gruesomely comic modernity and beauty all its own.
