Writer/director Brian O'Hara updates the monster movie with a new low in bad taste in the low-budget schlock horror comedy Rock 'N' Roll Frankenstein. Record producer Bernie (Barry Feterman) is tired of his typical musician clientele, so he enlists the help of his necrophiliac mad scientist nephew, Frankie (Jayson Spence), to help him create the perfect rock star. Drug-addicted assistant Iggy (Hiram Jacob Segarra) starts grave-robbing assorted body parts from dead rock & roll legends, including Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, and Sid Vicious, topped off with the head of Elvis Presley. In a grotesque send up of Young Frankenstein, clumsy Iggy accidentally destroys a particularly male body part from Jim Morrison, secretly switching it with the corresponding part from Liberace. When the creature is brought to life, and named the King (Graig Guggenheim), it quickly develops a dangerous sexual dysfunction due to conflicting desires. Soon, the King's manhood develops a mind of its own and the creature is driven to serious destruction.
