Picking a good scene from Frankenhooker is like trying to choose a pie at Baker’s Square…..there’s just too many good ones to choose from! And yes, I just actually got a Baker’s Square reference into a post.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I am indeed going to choose a scene from Frank Henenlotter’s 1990 horror comedy Frankenhooker. Haven’t seen Frankenhooker by the way? Then I should make you do the walk of shame like Cersei in Game Of Thrones. Now I really wanted to put up the the scene where all of the hookers explode simultaneously, but Youtube isn’t cooperating. So instead, I’ll throw you the scene where the creepy older guy looking for paid sex gets more than he bargained for. He did look happy in the end though, so that’s all that matters.
If I’m making a list of my favorite horror movies from the 80’s, then The Stuff is going to be high on that list. Hey, don’t scoff at that! The Stuff is quintessential viewing, especially if you’re high or if you’re a Garrett Morris fan. Now, I could go on and on about Chocolate Chip Charlie, but I want to focus on the fake commercials that were in the movie. You really can’t go wrong with Abe Vigoda and the ‘Where’s The Beef?‘ lady, can you?
“Enough is never enough! Enough is never enough!” Oh sorry. I got carried away with that catchy theme song. Did you ever really wonder what The Stuff really tasted like by the way? I always envisioned it to be a mixture of marshmallow fluff and toothpaste, which doesn’t sound entirely appetizing, but it could have been delicious. And speaking of delicious, how about I take us out of this post with another fake commercial starring a woman who could possibly be a man or maybe inhaled a little too much helium before the shoot.
