THE ATOMIC BRAIN (1963)



 This was filmed back in 1958 as MONSTROSITY and released 5 years later on the bottom of a double-bill. It was given THE ATOMIC BRAIN title for TV showings. It's your basic creaky old 50's brain-transplant/FRANKENSTEIN-rip-off kind of film. Dr. Frank, as he's conveniently named here, does a bunch of transplants resulting in various "monstrosities" including an animal-man, a lady with a cat's brain who scratches out another ladies eyeballs, a zombie lady and a cat with an old ladies brain. The main plot is about greedy folks trying to get their hands on an old ladies fortune. There's lots of voice-over narration instead of actually having the characters let us now what is going on, which is usually the sign of not-so-great film making, but at least this guy sounds creepy. While this is a mostly forgettable film I couldn't help but think while watching how there was probably more thought put into this cheap-o production than anything made in Hollywood in the last 30 years.
