Let’s face it: Most horror flicks don’t exactly pass the Bechdel test, and the virgin/whore character tropes that plague them wouldn’t be anyone’s idea of progressive. So the fact that Frank Henenlotter’s Frankenhooker hinges on dismembering sex workers in New York City to reassemble them into a vehicle for main man Jeffrey Franken’s girlfriend to be resurrected shouldn’t be shocking. If you love Henenlotter’s Basket Case and Brain Damage, this gory work of ’90s camp exploitation will be right up your alley — and hey, the film promises to serve up some terror to an unsuspecting John or two with quite the twist for Franken in the end. Equality, right? Frankenhooker screens at FilmBar, 815 North Second Street, on Halloween night (Monday, October 31) at 8:20 p.m. Tickets are $9, and you can snatch yours at thefilmbarphx.com.
