Frank Henenlotter's cult classic puts the blue flesh in Blu-ray with this feast of fiendish 42nd Street fleshpots!

He reassembles his beloved Elizabeth using the body parts of New York City’s finest prostitutes, and resurrects her during a heavy lightning storm. Unfortunately for Jeffrey, his dear Elizabeth’s brain is scrambled and she
runs amok on 42nd Street, turning tricks and bringing high-voltage death to
