Low-budget comedy schlock which borrows heavily from the plot of Frankenstein. 
When his girlfriend is killed in an unfortunate lawnmower incident, a geeky scientist attempts to resurrect her with body parts from murdered hookers, but when she finally does come to life, she goes on a killing spree herself.
Tongue-firmly in cheek, it's a film which is impossible to take seriously and fits well into the 'so bad, it's good' market.
The tagline ("A terrifying tale of sluts and bolts") tells you all you need to know about whether or not you'll like this.
4/10
