THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE (1962) a.k.a. The Head That Wouldn’t Die An egotistical doctor bucks tradition by experimenting with radical surgical techniques, resulting in monstrous failures and, when his fiancé Jan is decapitated in an auto accident, the title character brain/head that wouldn’t die. Made in 1959, it took three years before it would see release, reportedly due to censorship issues involving the strippers the mad doctor stalks to find a suitable body for the (somehow) living, (impossibly) breathing, (inexplicably) speaking “Jan In The Pan.” It’s a classic of the genre, with a plot that’s as preposterous as it gets, and visual imagery that has lingered with many an unsuspecting, pre-teen Creature Feature TV viewer since the 60s. Shitty editing and stage settings, but the music score isn’t half-bad. This “extended cut” comes from a 2002 re-release and features a few extra bloody scenes, along with a few additional seconds of the strippers’ cat fight. Of course, this isn’t the only film of its kind. Other versions include Madmen Of Mandoras/They Saved Hitler’s Brain (1963/1969, HERE) and a vaguely similar pre-cursor, Donovan’s Brain (1953, HERE), which was pre-dated by 1944’s The Lady And The Monster, based on the book, Donovan’s Brain.
