Synopsis by Mark Deming
Funnyman Steve Oedekerk wrote and directed this follow-up to his comic shorts Thumbtanic and Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle , in which one of the all times classic tales of terror gets a make-over -- as performed by a cast of thumbs! Mad doctor Frankenthumb and his deformed assistant Humpy bring to life a monster named Pepper, featuring a mal-formed brain and a body stitched together from the recently deceased. It doesn't take long for Pepper to make trouble in Frankenthumb's small village, and soon the creature gets the thumbs-down from angry villagers.
