‘Lisa Frankenstein’ Exhibits Little Life At Box Office

by Thomas Tuna

This experiment is going south fast.

Lisa Frankenstein–the horror-comedy (very) loosed based on the classic Mary Shelley horror novel–dropped off markedly at the domestic box office during its second weekend, according to a report on Deadline.

This weekend, the Focus Features flick earned just $1.9 million (slightly more than $2 million for the four-day Presidents’ Day holiday) from 3,100 theaters, dropping to ninth place domestically–compared to the second-place finish (and $4 million) in its debut weekend.

The feature–directed by Zelda Williams from a screenplay by Diablo Cody–stars Cole Sprouse, Kathryn Newton, Carla Gugino, Joe Chrest, Henry Eikenberry and Liza Soberano.

In the film, a high school girl, Lisa Swallows (Newton), accidentally re-animates a Victorian corpse (Sprouse) and rebuilds him into “the man of her dreams–using a broken tanning bed.” The couple then starts “a murderous journey to find true love, happiness and a few missing body parts.”
