The film was made back to back with Basket Case 2, and both movies were shot at New York City's Pier 40. "At the time it was a depot for diesel trucks," Henenlotter says, and he was told by everyone that it wouldn't work because it was too noisy to record sound. The concrete cinder blocks actually kept things fairly quiet. See more »
Incorrectly regarded as goof: As 'Frankenhooker' is an homage to writer Mary Shelley, the 'Frankenstein' films and the low budget gore movies of the 1960s and 1970s, the FX, make-up and prosthetics are deliberately clumsy. See more »

Come on. Do something, wake up. Let's go! Let's see that peeper.

Be very careful here. I'm gonna give it a lobotomy.

Forgotten cult classics #4
Probably, "Frankenhooker" is one of the best trash comedies Tromas has never released..! It´s a brilliant parody on Stuart Gordon´s "Re-Animator", Bill Murray is a huge fan of it and the fans of flicks like "The Toxic Avenger" will surely love this film: the humor is silly but entertaining, the F/X are pretty cheap and there are a lot of naked chicks running over the screen. The finest surprise arises when you don´t expect it: watch out for the 3 second cameo appearance of Rutger Hauer!!!
