Lisa (Kathryn Newton) is a teenage outcast in 1989 who is dealing with a new family situation when her father remarries, after her mother was brutally murdered by a notorious serial killer. Altered by those circumstances, Lisa spends time at a local cemetery, creating fantasies involving an 1800s-era teen boy who died young, which freaks out her step sister Taffy (Liza Soberano) and step Mom Janet (Carla Gugino). When a intense electrical storm brings to life her cemetery lover (Cole Sprouse), he finds his way to Lisa and changes her world.

”Lisa Frankenstein” is in theaters on February 9th. Featuring Kathryn Newton, Liza Soberano, Carla Gugino, Jennifer Pierce Mathus and Cole Sprouse. Written by Diablo Cody. Directed by Zelda Williams. Rated “PG-13”
