Doctor Bill Cortner (Herb Evers) has a serious car accident that leaves him pretty much unscathed but kills his girlfriend Jan (Virginia Leith). Good thing then that Bill is a specialist in organ transplantation and that he has developed a serum of some kind that gets dead organs back to life, and even more of a good thing that Jan's head remained intact after the accident. So Bill snatches his girl's head and brings it back to life in his laboratory. Jan isn't too happy about this though ...

Bill knows he can't keep his girlfriend alive as a bodyless head forever, so he soon starts cruising the town looking for a perfect body to put his girl's head on, visiting strip clubs, beauty pageants and the like before settling on nude model with a scarred face Doris (Adele Lamont), whose trust he easily wins over ...

Meanwhile Jan has formed a telepathic link with the monster (Eddie Carmel) Bill keeps locked away in the closet, has made enemies with Bill's deformed assistant Kurt (Leslie Daniels) and has lured Kurt into his death at the hands of the monster.

When Bill returns, he's understandably a bit shocked, but decides to go ahead with his mission to give Jan a new body anyways, and to this end drugs Doris - but then Jan convinces the monster to break out of his closet and kill Bill, then wreck the lab and set it (and Jan's head with it) on fire before taking off with Doris ...


Ok, so The Brain that wouldn't Die is not a good film, but with a title like this, nobody really expects it to be, right? What the film though is is lots of fun (if not always for the right reasons) - I mean what is there not to find amusing about a head in a pan having long discussions with a grossly overacting Leslie Daniels while the master Herb Evers is out sweettalking strippers? And then there is this wonderfully grostesque monster we only see all too briefly. And all is wrapped in a ridiculously unbelievable science fiction plot and filmed on the cheap but to fit the tastes of contemporary drive-in audiences.

Well, at least to trash movie enthusiasts, this is just perfect entertainment!
