FRANKENQUEEN is another ridiculous non-starter from David DeCoteau made as part of the '1313' series. The blurb would have you believe that this film's about a crazed plastic surgeon who goes around experimenting on young men, but as with the rest of the series, the emphasis is very much on the display of young, muscular, male flesh. There are a bunch of swimming pool scenes, staircase climbing, showering, and endless bedroom scenes.

I have watched almost all of IMDb's bottom 100 list and half of rotten tomato's worst 100 list of 2000 and I can say without a doubt that this is the worst film I have ever seen.Spoiler Alert.The film has no real plot to speak of. Instead it consists of a series of scenes whose only purpose is to waste time. The most egregious of these are the walking and scanning scenes. The film spends at least ten minutes following a man walking painfully slowly by a pool and through a house. The scene could have been fifteen seconds or less. Instead it is a test of character for the audience. The scene is then followed by another ten minutes (I kid you not) of the scientist scanning the man with a book light. Again the scene could have been fifteen seconds or less. Instead we suffer through her moving the book light up and down his body. This is then repeated on other actors. After that we watch the actors work out in real time often seeing repeated footage over and over again. What little plot there is feels rushed and undeveloped at the end which makes the 50 minutes or more of senseless footage throughout the film that much more insulting. I have no idea how this film got onto netflicks. I'm convinced it was filmed in less than a single day.I have no idea who the audience of this film is intended to be. The male actors are all attractive and spend the entire film shirtless and often in their underwear or in the shower (also clearly in their underwear). There is, however, no nudity or even implied sexuality. As a result, it feels like a softcore pornographic film that attempted to get a pg rating. I can't even imagine anyone who wanted to see shirtless men enjoying this film. Having a bunch of shirtless men flex or even suntan for 90 minutes with no plot would have been better than this travesty of a film. Congratulations Frankenqueen you have set a new low in cinema.

This movie was brilliant. It has the best twist ending I've ever seen! The film ruthlessly dissects both modern and more ancient takes on numerology. Without giving any spoilers, let me just say this: count the scans! And the slow-walks. Both are critical. At the same time, this Lovecraftian tale blends science and aesthetics to create a new paradigm, one which certainly changed my life, and will almost certainly change the world soon. The casting choices and acting are both superb. Filmed during the Shirt Guild strike of 2012, the actors had a heavy burden to carry to make the viewer take them seriously. They nailed it.It's hard to say much more about this movie without giving any spoilers. Each moment is just too packed with meaning. Go open up a tab on your browser to Netflix right now and watch this movie!

This movie is the WORST movie ever created by a human being. I don't understand how Netflix agreed to show this movie in their data base. This is just 5 boys.... in underwear and stupid blond girl, all in which cannot act. The movie has NO story line WHATSOEVER. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL... DO NOT WATCH!!!!!!! Never make the same mistake I did!!!!!!!! Don't DO IT!!!!!!! You think at the beginning it might be OK..but it's so wrong!!!!!!!!All this movie does is repeat the same scenes over and over with awful actors and awful music that does not go along with the scenes at all. Movie was made as if it would be a porno, but you never see any goods so it really is a pointless movie! There is really a scene with a boy taking a shower and just rubbing his tummy repeatedly .never wets hair.. never uses soap...and the creepy blond just watches..WORST MOVIE EVERsincerely3 people who lost 72 minutes of life!
