Falling in love can be murder.

On the heels (and various other body parts) of a recent promo poster and some official stills, the first trailer for Lisa Frankenstein is now online.

The teaser introduces Kathryn Newton (Ant-Man and the Wasp: Qauntumania) as a misfit high-school student who accidentally resurrects her ideal man (Riverdale alum Cole Sprouse). She then falls for the "Monster," and takes some extreme measures to ensure that her patchwork partner stays in one piece.

Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Zelda Williams, daughter of the late, great Robin Williams, the synopsis for the-80s-set horror comedy tells us that "an unpopular high schooler accidentally re-animates a handsome Victorian corpse during a lightning storm and starts to rebuild him into the man of her dreams using the broken tanning bed in her garage."

Check out the trailer at the link below.

"For anyone coming here to be like 'THIS is your first feature?!', it wasn't meant to be," Williams said on Twitter following the film's announcement. "I had three films fall apart before this, because movies often do. It was discouraging, to say the least, but the fact this one survived and THRIVED to be my first? A f***ing gift."

The movie will also feature Carla Gugino (Watchmen, Hill House), Liza Soberano (Alone/Together), Joe Chrest (Stranger Things) and Henry Eikenberry (The Crowded Room) in supporting roles.

Lisa Frankenstein is produced by Cody Mason Novick, who have previously collaborated on projects such as Tully, Young Adult, Jennifer’s Body and Juno. Jeffrey Lampert executive produces. Focus is distributing the film in the U.S., with Universal Pictures International handling distribution in the rest of the world.

We've seen quite a few takes on this tale over the years - including comedic adaptations like Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein - but Cody has proven adept at delivering clever scripts with scares and laughs, so we're looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us here.

“A coming of RAGE love story about a misunderstood teenager and her high school crush, who happens to be a handsome corpse. After a set of playfully horrific circumstances bring him back to life, the two embark on a murderous journey to find love, happiness… and a few missing body parts along the way.”

Lisa Frankenstein was set to hit theaters on February 9, 2024, but will now arrive a few days later on Valentine's Day.

She was honestly the worst thing about Ant-Man 3 for me, she was so annoying. And that is a movie with a joke MODOK and where ants defeated Kang.

@Urubrodi - She was, but what an awful part for anyone to try to make something out of. She was much better in Freaky.

@MarkCassidy - Might check that out at some point, have only seen her on Ant-Man and it was not a good impression but maybe it was more to do with the part itself.

@Urubrodi - she was also terrible in Detective Pickachu

@Urubrodi - 100%. The original actress for Cassie was basically universally loved. Stupid suits looking at stupid box office formulas didn't see the magic they would've had with her and Paul Rudd on screen and went with a stupid generic "hot girl movie star". Ugh, so disappointing.

Unpopular Take: Robin Williams was like a white Eddie Murphy, only less funny.

@CoHost - If only you were funny.

strangely, i'm attracted to this film.

looks to possibly be goofy fun.
Superheromoviefan - 10/27/2023, 11:27 AM
looks nice actually

Looks decently entertaining, the character she's playing looks like had stepped out from The Addams Family world and might even fit in the Wednesday series.

Good song choice too.

Kathryn Newton sure has come a long way too, from being a very recurring character in Supernatural on The CW to being on Detective Pikachu and in other stuff like Freaky and now the MCU, it's nice to see more of her. I miss the previous actress for Cassie but surely under another director and with better writing she'll make the character her own in a future installment.
