Critics Have Seen Lisa Frankenstein, And They’re Calling The Horror Comedy Everything From ‘A Bloody Good Time’ To ‘Painful’ To Watch


Anybody who grew up in the ‘80s or ‘90s is likely aware of the brightly colored stickers and school supplies designed by Lisa Frank. So it’s pretty easy to assume that there’s some nostalgia-fueled intrigue for the upcoming horror comedy Lisa Frankenstein. This movie with the clever portmanteau title puts an ‘80s twist on a classic monster flick and is set to hit theaters on February 9, but critics have already had a chance to screen the movie, and some definitely liked the effort better than others. 

Diablo Cody, writer of Juno and Jennifer’s Body, returns to horror with Lisa Frankenstein, and Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda Williams makes her feature film directorial debut with the story of teenager Lisa (Kathryn Newton) reanimating a Victorian Era corpse (Cole Sprouse) in hopes of creating the perfect boyfriend. In CinemaBlend’s review of Lisa Frankenstein, Sarah El-Mahmoud calls the film “plenty playful” and “deliciously gory.” She rates the upcoming horror movie 3.5 stars out of 5, writing: 

Lisa Frankenstein is a fun time for horror fans who also love a classic John Hughes movie. The February release isn’t afraid to contort itself into creepy corners whilst simultaneously living in a dreamy, cotton-candy ‘80s world where grief and lust are explored with twisted passion. It’s a Frankenstein flick where the wheel isn’t being invented, but it’s a great time nonetheless.
