The Brain that Wouldn't Die ★★½ The Head that Wouldn't Die 1963

Love is a many-splattered thing when a brilliant surgeon keeps the decapitated head of his fiancee alive after an auto accident while he searches for a suitably stacked body onto which to transplant the head. Absurd and satiric (head talks so much that Doc tapes her/its mouth shut) adding up to major entry in trash film genre; much of the gore was slashed for the video, however. 92m/B VHS, DVD . Herb Evers, Virginia Leith, Adele Lamont, Leslie Daniel, Bruce Brighton, Paula Maurice; D: Joseph Green; W: Joseph Green; C: Stephen Hajinal; M: Tony Restaino.
