One of the more memorable 60s campy sci-fi movies. A great mix of ludicrous melodrama and campy gore. Fuck MSTK3000 forever.

For an MST3K black and white b-movie, this one was actually not bad, and really had genuinely creepy moments hidden in the cheese. Also, I just really like the name.

Woah, quite sleazy! Wrestling half naked women, porn music as background, swimwear competition? Watch out feminists, cause you will love this. There's nothing more degrading than seeing a woman's head in a baking pan. Awesome MST3K

Charmingly awful little flick, rife with technophobic anxiety and questionable acting. The lengthy and hamhandedly poetic dialogue scenes between the severed head and the lab assistent are worth the price of admission alone. Despite the titular brains request to let it die, the material was brought back in Henenlotters quasi-remake "Frankenhooker".

Could be historically interesting. Probably one of the earliest instances of the head in a pan seeking its body. The film seems to be low-budget and doesn't really work very well. As I say, may be of historical interest only.

Underrated. Several creepy and wierd scenes throughout. Bunches of things to keep you involved into the movie (WHAT THE FUCK IS BEHIND THE DOOR), yet its pretty damn cheesy, like all sci-fi/horror movies from this era.

Fills too much time with endless TV soap opera drama (1958 style), along with a moral saying that organ transplants are the devil's work and just let people die. Some of the sleaze is laid on pretty thick though and it's unfortunate that the nudie footage is reportedly lost.

I thought it was pretty good for it's time, and even though production costs can't compare to those today, I think they did a decent job with what they had. Other than that beast, which was, well, beastly!

Campy and with obvious effects, but it's enjoyable for most of it's runtime. A minor classic.
