Lisa Frankenstein (2024)
Lisa Frankenstein Synopsis
Surviving high school is hard enough on its own—add in the trauma of your mom being axe-murdered in your living room, and it becomes virtually impossible to cope. Just ask Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton), the awkward 17-year-old trying to adjust to a new school and a new life after her mother's demise and her father's hasty remarriage. Despite the unwavering support offered by plucky cheerleader step-sister Taffy (Liza Soberano), Lisa only finds solace in the abandoned cemetery near her house, where she tends to the grave of a young man who died in 1837.
But everything changes one dark and stormy night in the fall of 1989 after a humiliated Lisa makes a desperate and heartfelt wish—to be with the young man in the world beyond. When a monstrous-looking corpse (Cole Sprouse) turns up the following evening, Lisa realizes there's been a cosmic misunderstanding. Still, she feels obligated to help the poor soul regain his humanity, and she embarks on a quest to breathe new life into her long-dead companion. All she needs to succeed are some freshly harvested body parts and Taffy's broken tanning bed.
