An image from Lisa Frankenstein

Following the tragic death of her mother, Lisa (Newton) spends her time in the local cemetery and becomes enamoured with one particular corpse. When a supernatural lightning strike brings him to life the pair embark on an adventure-stroke-killing-spree around the town. And they say romance is dead… (well, in this case…)

Comedy horror seems to be Kathryn Newton's thing in recent times with Freaky and Ant-Man: Quantumania (which was just so horrible, I can't help but laugh), and I think she really shines here. And let's not forget Cole Sprouse, who stars as the zombified 1800s ‘heartthrob’, who looks significantly better after a good wash.

Described as a ‘coming of rage story’, and written by the mind behind cult classic Jennifer's Body, Lisa Frankenstein is the epitome of ‘I can fix him’ – with ‘him’ being the reanimated corpse of a Victorian guy.
