He’s making a grasp race (aka eugenics) however following repeated scientific failures, he seeks out a “perfect specimen” on the brothel. This entails the homicide of quiet Sasha (Srdjan Zelenovic) quite than hunky lothario Nicholas (Joe Dallesandro), which instigates a sequence of calamitous occasions.
Will the Baron’s “zombies” lastly mate? Will Nicholas dwell fortunately ever after as Katrin’s sexual manservant? And simply what the hell is up with these voyeuristic, pervert youngsters? Flesh for Frankenstein is wild, y’all!
