Storyline

Three L.A. street thugs mug an old man, murder him by cutting his throat, beat up a woman and steal her car, break into another young woman's house and proceed to beat and rape her. She is taken to the hospital and while recovering is brought mug shot books by the police to see if she can identify her attackers, which she does. But the bad guys leader, Cole, disguises himself as a doctor, breaks into the woman's hospital room and murders her. Vowing vengeance, her college student boyfriend, Mark, and his student pals Carlos and Scott, decide to build a 'Golem' from human and animal parts, bring it to life and have it track down the murderers so there is no risk to themselves! But not everything goes to plan when an unexpected, and very unlikely, romance breaks out between the 'Golem' whom they name Frankie, and a simpleton street woman named Jamie whom Frankie saves from the street thugs. Written by Larry B.

Goofs

Jamie, who is clearly an adult, says her mother was a "horror freak" so she named her after Jamie Lee Curtis. However Jamie Lee Curtis didn't make a horror film until 1978, only 11 years before this film was made. See more »

Quotes

Carlos: Hey, I just got an idea. Have any of you guys ever heard of a Golem?
Scott: What are you talking about?
Mark: A what?
Carlos: A Golem. In my religious studies at Loyola we talked basics of the Jewish religion as a part of our course.
Scott: So?
Carlos: So, Jewish legends from the Middle Ages tell of various persons with the power to create a Golem: a monster made out of clay given life from the proper combination of the Hebrew letters from the divine name. The most famous of these creators was a Rabbi named Judah Loew from Prague...

Definitely lives up to its title
20 February 2012 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

After his girlfriend is murdered by some punks, Mark (David Homb) does the only natural thing to do - he and his two friends play Dr. Frankenstein and construct a monster to get revenge. They end up with Frankie (Hal Borske), a mixture of man and gorilla (!) who they give punk clothes and a red afro wig. Frankie does their bidding rather easily and offs the punks before the 1 hour mark. The rest has Frankie falling for punk rockette Jaimie (Carrie Anita) and the guys getting power hungry with their new creation. So how does Milligan fare in the 1980s? Well, his film definitely looks better than the 1970s efforts I've seen (THE GHASTLY ONES, BLOODTHIRSTY BUTCHERS), but it still has the same flat direction. It wasn't until about a half hour into this that I realized it was supposed to be a comedy, a fact cleverly hidden by the awful acting on display. The special effects are a slight notch above Milligan's earlier efforts. Look for the same severed hand to be used twice. Also look for a police suspect photo book that shows the pages are empty with every turn and a crew member reflected in a mirror in the guys' garage/lab.
