FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN (1973, 95”)
In Serbia, Baron Frankenstein lives with the Baroness and their two children. He dreams of a super-race, returning Serbia to its grand connections to ancient Greece. In his laboratory, assisted by Otto, he builds a desirable female body, but needs a male who will be superbody and superlover. He thinks he has found just the right brain to go with a body he’s built, but he’s made an error, taking the head of a asexual aesthete. Meanwhile, the Baroness has her lusts, and she fastens on Nicholas, a friend of the dead lad. Can the Baron pull off his grand plan? He brings the two zombies together to mate. Meanwhile, Nicholas tries to free his dead friend. What about the Baron’s children?
BLOOD FOR DRACULA (1974, 103”)
Udo Kier is without a doubt the sickliest of vampires in any director’s interpretation of the Bram Stoker tale. Count Dracula knows that if he fails to drink a required amount of pure virgin’s [pronounced ”wirgin’s”] blood, it’s time to move into a permanent coffin. His assistant (Renfield?) suggests that the Count and he pick up his coffin and take a road trip to Italy, where families are known to be particularly religious, and therefore should be an excellent place to search for a virgin bride. They do, only to encounter a family with not one, but FOUR virgins, ready for marriage. The Count discovers one-by-one that the girls are not as pure as they say they are, meanwhile a handsome servant/Communist begins to observe strange behaviour from the girls who do spend the night with the Count. It’s a race for Dracula to discover who’s the real virgin, before he either dies from malnourishment or from the wooden stake of the Communist!

Dr. Christian Meyer: Warhol, Music and Films
KISS (1963, 54”)
Close-ups of couples kissing for three minutes each.
BLOW JOB (1963, 35”)
EAT: Man eats a single mushroom very, very slowly for the duration of the film. He is filmed (mostly in focus) with a stationary camera. A cat enters the screen at one point. The cat leaves for a while but returns. The man pets and strokes the cat all the while continuing to eat the mushroom. After the cat leaves the second time, the man continues to eat the mushroom until the film (and the mushroom) are finished.
BLOW JOB : Andy Warhol directs a single 35-minute shot of a man’s face to capture his facial expressions as he receives the sexual act depicted in the title.
THE CHELSEA GIRLS (1966, 192”)
Lacking a formal narrative, Warhol’s art house classic follows various residents of the Chelsea Hotel in 1966 New York City, presented in a split screen with a single audio track in conjunction with one side of screen.
EMPIRE (1964, ote | excerpt 60”)
MARIO BANANA #1 (1964, 3,5”)
MARIO BANANA #2 (1964, 3,5”)
EMPIRE : A single shot of the Empire State Building from early evening until nearly 3 am the next day.
MARIO BANANA #1 and MARIO BANANA #2:
Like most of Warhol’s short films, these consists of a closeup shot of the subject and lasts about 4 minutes. Nothing that exciting happens here. A transvestite (the self-named Mario Montez) eating and licking a banana.
LONESOME COWBOYS (1967, 109”)
In the wild wild west, Ramona Alvarez and her perpetually stoned nurse run into five gay cowboys. The seven members of the party desire a handsome male drifter, except for the transvestite sheriff, who can’t be bothered about anything but his outfit. All hot & bothered at this point, the cowboys rape Ramona, who subsequently has sex with the drifter and, in the afterglow of sex, wants to form a suicide pact with him. The drifter rejects her new desire and rides off into the sunset with another man. Written by Tummy AuGratin
