Frankenhooker: A Feminist Reading

9 things Frankenhooker teaches us *spoiler alert*:

1. Women are more than pieces/bodyparts…

Elizabeth just couldn't digest the wine like she used to...

Elizabeth just couldn’t digest the wine like she used to…

2. You can’t control a woman

Elizabeth just couldn't contain herself.

Elizabeth just couldn’t contain herself.

3. Prostitution should be legalised for reasons of control and safety…

Lost your head?

Lost your head?

4. There is no perfect woman

her thighs were 0.5cm short of being the perfect size...

her thighs were 0.5cm short of being the perfect size…

5. …But everyone is perfect to somebody (even if you have purple nipples)

he always wanted a white faced, purple haired beauty...

he always wanted a white faced, purple haired beauty…

6. Women’s sexuality is powerful

sadly his dream girl cost him his head

sadly his dream girl cost him his head

7. …And so is their sexual appetite

Foot fetish?

Foot fetish?

8. Also, Elizabeth sufficiently gets her own back on her selfish Frankenstein boyfriend…

oh baby, you feeling a little off?

oh baby, you feeling a little off?

9. …And manages to emasculate him too! (Never mess with a scorned woman, dead or alive!)

Oh, you didn't want DD?

Oh, you didn’t want DD?
