The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) Brilliant but borderline psychotic surgeon does secretive, experimental work with limb transplants and tissue rejection drugs, much to the chagrin of his surgeon-father. When he crashes his car and his fiancee is decapitated, his research - far from complete - is put to the test. His focus then becomes finding an appropriate donor body to make his fiancee whole, while the current and failed experiments in his basement laboratory grow restless.

  • Jan Compton: Nothing you can be is more terrible than what I am.
  • Kurt: You're nothing but a freak of life! And, a freak of death!
  • Jan Compton: And what else has happened to it? Kurt: What do you mean, *what else*? Well, it's... It's mutated some, of course. It's changed considerably.
  • Dr. Bill Cortner: Oh, come on now, Doris. Do I look like a maniac who goes around killing girls?

  • The last title shot reads "The Head That Wouldn't Die".
  • One of the men snapping photos of Doris in her studio is Jerry Lewis imitator Sammy Petrillo, who co-starred in Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952).
