Pretentious New York underground filmmaker Nick Zedd apparently tried to package this 16mm horror parody as an instant cult classic for the midnight-movie circuit, but like all of Zedd's films only his die-hard followers will be impressed; others need not apply. The central theme (one can't really call it a plot) involves the mad Dr. Frankenberry (Robert Andrews) and his attempts to reanimate the dead. Along for the ride is aptly-named Richard Hell as a punk-rock cowboy and the quaintly-monikered Donna Death as the vampiress "Scumbelina," with narration provided by deadpan TV horror host John Zacherle.
