Reviews of "Andy Warhol's Frankeslein" -- though done by Morrissey, the movie .is tied to Warhol in spirit and for box-office reasons -- have ranged from catcalls to hurrahs.

Baron Frankenstein, played by Udo Kier, spends his time kidnapping and cutting up young people, then sewing together their disparate parts intu a matching pair of super- creaturcs -- male and female -- who will breed him a master race. The film is deeper than the gore. It represents Morrissey's vision of a new generation of passionless, almost catatonic young. It also shows his disgust with mainstream culture -- its death machines, sexual sham, envy and obsession with youth.

The underground talent wants to get into the sun- Ifght, and studios have been wooing him. He is no longer cultivating his "cnfante terrible" image. "I've done my service in the vanguard," Morrissey said in an interview. "I want to be promoted to the rear guard. I want to take a rest; You can't be in the front lines all the time." With potential scripts arriving by messenger and the phone jingling regularly in his -hotel room, Morrissey was or- 'dering hot fudge sundaes and contemplating his future above ground.

I worked with such incredible people. I had the luxury of making any choice I wanted to. Only the gullible, insists Morrissey, will be- shocked by "Frankenstein's" special effects. "When the violence occurs, it's unreal, 1 he says. "Most ot the time I leave the camera on the obvious sptcial effects, like the rubber bodies, so that it become obvious they're not real." The hearts, kidneys and en- irails, he says, were bought at a butcher shop; although they're presented as human parts. "If it's not funny, it's nothing," Morrissey says. But he adds rrhpishly: "It's good to aggravate people ' a little. It makes them pay attention."
