Movie Review: Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein (2010, MVD Visual)

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has seen numerous film forms. I'm not even going to roll down the line. Frankenstein is one of the most overdone stories in genre. Why is that? Well, for one it's a fucking amazing story. We just got Creep Creepersin's ultra-low budget version of Frankenstien, titled appropriately Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein. Could it be a quarter as good as Frank Hennonlotter's Frankenhooker or even half as entertaining as Rock 'N Roll Frankenstein? Don't mean to confuse with the math, this was just my pre-Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein moment of pondering.

Victor (James Porter) watches old horror movies all-day. He's also not incredibly social either. His only friend in the world is his pet rat, Frankenstein. Because of this loneliness he decides to build his own "friend". Porter is the highlight of the movie. I don't know if he's like this in real-life but he comes across as almost a slender Michael J. Pollard with his slow delivery of his lines. It's fitting though and perfect for the character. I almost had flashbacks of "Frank" from the vile cult classic Bride of Frank. Porter's a much better actor than he is though and there seems to be a little less improvisation.

The film itself is super short (52 minutes) but even with such a short running time it felt like it dragged at some points. Not much happens as it's really Porter just being odd for the majority of the feature. There's no gore, nudity or really anything terribly exploitive but there are several very graphic depictions of scrambled egg eating. This was amusing. I thought the Village Inn on Baseline Road in Mesa, Arizona took the cake for this, but after seeing Creep Creepersin's Frankenstein, we have a new winner in the excessive egg consumption by a geriatric category.
