Movie Info

In this low-brow combination slasher film and parody of the "Frankenstein" films, a doctor becomes desperate to somehow bring his late wife back to life. But before he can do this, he needs a few fresh parts. Hackenstein gets a golden opportunity when three girls, whose car has broken down, come knocking at his door. He lets them stay the night, but only one survives his fearsome hacksaw to see the light of day.

All Critics (1)

Dr. Hackenstein is only an occasionally funny, but mostly meandering motion picture about sutures and stupidity.
