“Jennifer’s Body” and “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody is back with another ode to teenage oddballs with “Lisa Frankenstein.” The feature directorial debut of Zelda Williams, the romantic horror comedy stars Kathryn Newton as Lisa, a teen outcast who accidentally resurrects the man of her dreams (Cole Sprouse) and, in the tradition of Mary Shelley’s winds down a murderous path to get him all the right parts.
It’s a creepy, campy and ultimately quite cute love story by way of 80s comedy and classic literature hybrid. As Lex Briscuso wrote in TheWrap’s review, “The silly and sexy horror comedy brings an edgy twist to the adored subgenre and, through its reverence for the beloved decade’s penchant for gothic charm, makes for a ridiculously brilliant spin on a timeless story over 200 years old.”
