‘Lisa Frankenstein’ Comes Home with Deleted Scenes and Commentary

The latest in a recent string of Frankenstein-inspired movies (see also The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster, Poor Things), this year’s new horror comedy Lisa Frankenstein comes home on Digital today and on Blu-ray next week in a Collector’s Edition release that includes a feature director commentary track and deleted scenes. Read on for the official announcement.

Kathryn Newton and Cole Sprouse star in Focus Features’ 80’s inspired dark comedy, Lisa Frankenstein, available to own as a Collector’s Edition with never-before-seen bonus content on Digital today, and on Blu-ray and DVD in April.

The electrifying bonus material includes a hilarious gag reel, deleted scenes, and featurettes that give a behind-the-scenes look at Diablo Cody’s inspiration behind the film, Lisa’s relationship with Creature, plus a feature commentary by director Zelda Williams.

Lisa Frankenstein is directed by Zelda Williams in her feature-length directorial debut and written by Academy Award® winning scribe Diablo Cody (Jennifer’s BodyJuno.) The film stars Kathryn Newton (Blockers, “Big Little Lies”), Cole Sprouse (Big Daddy, “Riverdale”), Liza Soberano (Alone/Together, “Make It with You”), Henry Eikenberry (“Euphoria,” “The Crowded Room”), Joe Chrest (Killers of the Flower Moon, “Stranger Things”), and Carla Gugino (Watchmen, San Andreas).

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.
