Music agent Bernie Stein, his scientist nephew Frankie, and a drugged out roadie named Iggy team to create a superstar by putting together the remains of dead rockers. All goes according to plan until a mishap leads Iggy to steal Liberace's private parts instead of those of Jim Morrison. The monster is brought to life and is on the road to rock 'n' roll success when the Liberace side of the monster begins to assert itself, with tragic results. Written by
Tries for instant cult status, with disappointing results ................
A lot about "Rock n Roll Frankenstein" is annoying, starting with the simple fact that if you only have a one joke movie, the joke better not be beaten to death, and must be developed beyond the original idea. Unfortunately neither of the above apply to "Rock n Roll Frankenstein". The acting is amateurish, and the Elvis looks and sounds nothing like even the worst Elvis impersonator. Endless drug references quickly become tiresome, the homosexuality angle becomes extremely redundant, and the word f--k outrageously overused as supposed dialog. Even if you are into weird films, this is one to avoid. Everything seems forced, and comes off as though they realized that beyond the one joke, this was going nowhere. - MERK
