In his 3.5-star review, Matt Donato called Lisa Frankenstein "a Valentine's treat for horror fans," and if you haven't had a chance to see the new horror comedy romance in theaters or would prefer to watch it from the comfort of your own couch, the new film from writer Diablo Cody and director Zelda Williams is heading to digital platforms beginning February 27th!

From the Press Release: Universal City, California, February 26, 2024 – Love has never been so cutthroat! Kathryn Newton and Cole Sprouse play this season’s “it” couple in the new hilarious and frightful film from Focus Features, LISA FRANKENSTEIN, available exclusively on digital platforms to own or rent tomorrow, February 27, 2024, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

LISA FRANKENSTEIN is directed by Zelda Williams in her feature-length directorial debut and written by Academy Award® winning scribe Diablo Cody (Jennifer’s Body).
