Frankenhooker (1990)

A medical student sets out to recreate his decapitated fiancée by building her a new body made of Manhattan street prostitutes.

Exemplary exercise in gross humor and bad taste, fitfully made on a low budget, culminates in a Grand Guignol ending with a wicked twist; not at all for the squeamish.

Halliwell (no star): "Odd mix of uninventive comedy and gore, relying on its tastelessness to amuse."

Maltin*1/2: "Grim, gory, and seldom funny horror comedy...Offensive, cheap, and ugly - even by splatter genre standards."
