From Savant Films

Screened Tuesday, May 8, at the NYC Independent Film Festival. Review is in the works.

A monster movie parody doubling as a comedy about parenthood. A lightning bolt cuts short the life of a Jewish plumber’s son, Norman Pinski, played by Mark Gessner. But …  Dr. Vanderwal, a celebrated local baldness doctor, played by Lee Tergesen is secretly a modern day Dr. Frankenstein. Norman, once resurrected in the form of a classic horror film monster, gets another chance at finding himself … if his overbearing Jewish parents don’t get in the way.

NORMAN PINSKI COME HOME is the sixth film by writer/director Aaron Rudelson. Rudelson, a fan of Mel Brooks’ classic comedy, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, putting a Rudelson spin on the Frankenstein narrative. The creature may be a monster but to his former mother, his primitive mind is just like that of a toddler (with superhuman strength).

NORMAN PINSKI COME HOME  has earned more than 12 awards including BEST COMEDY from the Short. Sweet. Film Fest 2018, as well as BEST COMEDY SHORT from CenFlo 2017 where it made its world premiere.
