Goofs

The "wrecked" car is back at the house, at least four months later, after the accident. It is shown for a few seconds after the lead characters first day back at work. Also, at least four months after the accident, there is still snow on the ground and on the house. However, there is more of this snow, which is in the same pattern, than the amount of snow on the first day of the movie. See more »

This Frankenstein revisited picture, is a B+++ movie!!!
24 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

The film is enjoyable and is good fun.

The main character loses his arm in an accident, and gets a replacement from a dubious source leading to all sorts of macabre events, and the play includes having a mad scientist/doctor.

What I like about this picture is that even though the story spirals into absurdity and is preposterous, all the lead actors take themselves and the story very seriously making the movie even more hilarious.

Everyone gives full throttle performances which keeps the viewer nicely entertained!

I wonder if we have or will get a body Parts II?!

Worthy of a solid:

7/10
