Doctor Hackenstein (1988)

directed by;Richard Clark

cast;David Muir, Michael Ensign, Cathy Cahn

Irredeemable piece of tosh served by Troma.This doesn’t necessarily have to mean something about Lloyd Kaufman’s infamous nest of guerilla B-movie making,as Troma has also given us  as milestones of genre cinema such as:Combat Shock or Class of nuke’em High.However Doctor Hackenstein which plays like a Re-animator spoof is nowhere near as good as the aforementioned films.It is a meandering,tedious exercise in stupid cinema  without any merit.

Dr. Hackenstein is a genial but somewhat misguided scientist. He murders the locals for their body parts, but it’s not for power or scientific research; he just needs them to put his wife back together.

For starters this one looks surprisingly Eighties-like especially for a film that is supposedly set in the 1910s.Alas,if only this was the sole problem of this film…Doctor Hackenstein is disjointed,plagued by downright moronic attempts in black humour.The “special” effects are nonexistent and the pacing of the film is atrocious.Nothing stands out in this mess,there are literally tons of other films that have influenced this one and are actually way better than this movie.

This is excruciatingly standard video fodder that wasn’t able to convince anyone even in the heyday of video fodder pilgrimage…Next please…

Ανούσια κωμωδία “τρόμου” που προσπαθεί να μας πείσει πως μπορεί να κάνει τη δουλειά καλύτερα από το Reanimator…Ας είμαστε όμως ειλικρινείς,αυτό το πράγμα δεν πρέπει να το δει κανείς…

Χάσιμο χρόνου και ακαλαίσθητη συρραφή από κλισέ ο τεκές με τον ανεκδιήγητο Ελληνικό τίτλο “Δόκτωρ Χασαποστάιν” είνα μια  απόλυτα ανειλικρινής απόπειρα να τσιμπήσει ο παραγωγός κομματάκι από τη παχυλή βιντεοπίτα της εποχής,το παρόν είναι φιάσκο ακόμα και για τα στάνταρ της Τρόμα.

Αφήστε το να σαπίζει στα ράφια των βίντεοκλαμπ που έχουν απομείνει
