Flesh For Frankenstein at the Guild Cinema, as part of the Andy Warhol Halloween!
Friday, October 27 – 10:30 pm only

Directed by Paul Morriseey – 1973 – 95m.  An Alibi Midnight Movie Madness special presentation!

Paul Morrisey’s 1973 trash-art classic is a beautifully filmed and elegantly turned-out psychodrama that is in equal parts, horror film and satire.  This re-evaluating horror tale of the mad Baron Frankenstein and his perverse creative urges stars the inimitable Udo Kier, Joe Dallesandro and Monique Van Vooren.

“A riot. Even its closing tableau is socially transcendent and transgressive.” – Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com

“Disgusting? Yes. Obscene? Oh, certainly. Likely to deprave and corrupt? Paul Morrissey absolutely hopes so. And above all else, wildly funny.” – Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy

“The film’s gross-out climax has the mad-scientist Baron (Udo Kier) screwing his undead Bride on a gurney, then ravaging Marlon Brando with a spot-on parody of Last Tango.” – Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

“To say that the film is for specialized tastes understates the case. It’s simply a gloriously decadent, degenerate joke that you either get, or you don’t.” – Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
