Whoh this is so lame I say : avoid. I thought Frankenstein would rock but it really doesn't. I seen a lot of Frankenstein movies and this is nothing like them. There are no vampires like in Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein, there are no lesbians like in Lust for Frankenstein, there are no SKs like in Frankenstein was Jack the Ripper, there is just jawbreaking philosophical like debate, well it would break your jaw in four places if you tried to read this stuff out aloud. I fell asleep five times during the reading of a single page. True. Now the author was a young girl she was like only 15 and she was living a pretty wild rock & roll lifestyle with a bunch of poets at the time but you wouldn't know from this book, there's no sex in it, there's some murders and body parts but man not enough for me, Frankenstein doesn't even get burned in the end or eaten by nymphomaniacs like in Frankenstein vs the Nymphomaniacs, he just like wanders off into the Arctis. Not realistic at all.

Richard They shoulda got that Stephenie Meyer chick to write the book instead, bro! Immagin sparkly re-anime corpses teaming up with sparkly vampires or sparkly wearwolfs or sparkly cereal killers or sparkly nymphos or sparkly goshzillas or... The possibilities are endless. And sparkly!

BTW dude, thats Tardis, not Arctis. Peace out.

Paul Bryant He wanders off in the Tardis? okay maybe I have to give this book a few points for seeing the future. i thought it was the artic but you could be right. i can't check cause i left my copy on the bus.

But GR has a green tab thing under the book that says "Read book." Then you can read it for free. The last chapter is called: "Eppalog." The captin guy writes to his sister how all of a sudden, as Dr. F. is dissipeering, this thing that looks like a phone booth apeers out of nowheres and parks on the ice. It squishes a poler bare. I think maybe you missed it on the first read. (It's in the back.)

Cecily Paul, my enjoyment of your review transformed into utter delight at the final sentence. Brilliant.

Paul Bryant thanks Cecily - you see I have a multiple personality disorder and sometimes this other person takes over ... whoever he is he seems to have also reviewed Gulliver's Travels...

Cecily And Oliver Twist, I see:


Paul Bryant yes, where will this madness end?

Manny Frankenstein does not get eaten in Frankenstein versus the Nymphomaniacs. I wonder if you have even seen this movie. But apart from that a very good review.

Paul Bryant Hey Manny I am talking about the german remake not the 1988 original which is okay but does not have enough nymphomaniacs. In the 2008 remake he does get eaten and that scene is pretty gross we were green by the end, we think it gives The Human Centipede a run for its money i think you can still download it on

Manny I refuse to see the German remake. To me, the 1988 original, with Paris Hilton's brilliant cameo as Third Woman in Shower, simply IS Frankenstein versus the Nymphomaniacs. But I respect your opinions.

Ian "Marvin" Graye What is there we should versus about the Nymphomaniacs?

Paul Bryant you know, a very good question..... but I haven't seen the Lars von der Trier movie yet.

Beth I loved this review 1,000 times more than the book. Totally with you on the not enough nymphomaniacs thing. I mean, GEEZ, Mary. Get your head out of your ass.

Andrew Like Jefferson, you must have read the early 1818. "Remember, I am not recording the vision of a madman... that which I now affirm is true...I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation and life; nay, more, I became myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter!"
