Editorial Reviews

This DVDTee includes both a DVD of the 1964 film, Atomic Brain, and a tee shirt featuring the original poster art. In this cult sci-fi/horror favorite (also released as Monstrosity), a mad scientist's experiments in atom-fueled brain transplantation go horribly wrong. A rich, elderly widow invests a hefty chunk of her fortune to fund the misguided research with the hope of being returned to a younger body and regaining her youth. She even lets the crazed doctor and his mutant assistant set up a lab in her basement. But when three attractive young women from Europe are lured to her mansion (via an ad for a housekeeper), they become subjected to a gory series of failed procedures in this creepy classic. One woman even ends up with the brain of a cat!

He transplants his cat's brain into her.

In fact, when the girls first arrive I thought that it might actually turn into a decent film as things get very spooky and suspenseful.

The film is so grainy, you would think they filmed this with oatmeal on the camera lense.

"The Atomic Brain" is a masterpiece! Pure schlock, held together by cheesey glue! A mad scientist (Frank Gerstle) is experimenting with brain transplants in the basement of his aged female benefactor. Dr. Frank's been robbing graves, with the help of the "dogman" he's created, in order to find fresh, 60s style centerfold model-type, bimbette bodies for his experiments. You see, he's working on a brain transplant that will enable the old lady upstairs to "die" and inherit her own fortune, in the body of a young bodacious babe! Dr. Frank has already turned one girl into a mindless zombie who roams around aimlessly, until she stumbles into the dogman and becomes puppy chow. Then, three girls are tricked into coming to the house for (fake) housekeeper interviews. One is given the brain of a cat. Unfortunately, she climbs up on the roof and won't come down! The old hag has her eye on the blond bombshell of the three. Sadly, blondie gets her eye knocked out by cat girl. So, the third woman is selected as the body for the crazy old bat's cranial goo. BTW, the Dr.s experimants are all being done by dunking folks into some tub of radioactive slime. I won't give away the ending. Let's just say it's purrrrrfect...

Not likely to attain cult classic status, "The Atomic Brain" concerns a rich old woman, Mrs. March (Marjorie Eaton), who is funding researcher Dr. Otto Frank (Frank Fowler) to discover a way to transplant her brain into a younger woman's body. Otto has a small nuclear reactor in the basement of Mrs. March's house. The laboratory set looks even cheaper than similar stuff on the original "Outer Limits" television show.

The scientific basis behind Otto's experiments and the need to radiate his subjects is never adequately explained, obviously they needed the reactor to justify the original "Atomic Brain" title, the word fission is unconvincingly thrown around several times. I can only assume that the alternate title, "Monstrosity", is someone's comment on the quality of the film. At the start of the movie Otto's success has been limited to the transplant of a dog's brain into a man (who has large teeth and looks a bit like the goon in one of shorts featuring "The Three Stooges").

Mrs. March is encouraged when the doctor steals a woman's corpse from the graveyard and reanimates it to zombie status. Needing fresh living bodies for her transplant she hires three attractive young girls from Europe serve as housekeepers. Mrs. March has no other staff at her mansion, only a wimpy "companion and gigolo" guy who is turned on by the young girls. His name is Victor and the narrator sums up his motivation with the movie's best lines: "Three new bodies. Fresh, live, young bodies. No families or friends within thousands of miles, no one to ask embarrassing questions when they disappear. Victor wondered which one Mrs. March would pick. The little Mexican, the girl from Vienna, or the buxom blond?

Disclaimer: The version of this film that I viewed is contained in the Sci-Fi Classics 50 Movie Pack produced by Mill Creek. As such, I cannot comment on the audio or visual quality of the disc released by St. Clair Vision. My review is concerned with the entertainment value of the film only.

Mill Creek Sci-Fi Classics 50 Movie Pack: Disc 1, Side B, third feature - THE ATOMIC BRAIN (aka MONSTROSITY), starring Marjorie Eaton, Frank Gerstle, and Xerxes the cat. Directed by Joseph Mascelli.

Objectively, I have to admit that THE ATOMIC BRAIN is a pretty terrible film. There really isn't any rational way to defend it - there probably wasn't even a rational excuse for making it, other than hoping to make a quick buck off the drive-in crowd. Still, I don't think it's as bad as some have made out. It's premise isn't even that ridiculous - a scientist, Gerstle, has been experimenting with transplanting a human brain; and Marjorie Easton, as the wealthy dowager Hetty March, is funding his research so she will have the opportunity to live forever by slipping her brain into a fresh, nubile body whenever the old one begins to wear out.

There's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip, as they say, and despite a reasonable idea for a science-fiction/horror hybrid, the result onscreen is less than what it could have been. Several of the doctors previous experiments - fresh bodies from the morgue with transplanted brains from animals - are rejuvenated and are roaming around the grounds, while in the meantime, three likely candidates for Mrs. March's new body are brought out to her isolated mansion, believing they are going to be the new housemaids.

This 1964 horror film is so bad it is almost funny in points. The plot is generally incoherent and the science in the science fiction is generally non-existent. In spite of all the negatives, this movie does have some redeeming characteristics.

We are introduced to mad scientist Dr. Otto Frank (Frank, Frankenstein; could there possibly be a connection here?) early in the movie, wandering around cemeteries looking for freshly dead bodies for his nefarious experiments. By coincidence, veteran actor Frank Gerstle played Dr. Frank. To be Frank...oh, never mind. Anyway, Dr. Frank is transplanting the brains of various critters into the bodies. He is funded by wealthy Hetty March (Marjorie Eaton; later Eaton and Gerstle played bit parts in the Steve McQueen film "Bullitt"), who wants Dr. Frank to learn how to place her brain into a young body so that she may live on. Dr. Frank has succeeded a couple of times, so there is a vicious creature wandering around the grounds of Hetty March's isolated mansion that has the brain of a dog and a beautiful young girl also wandering around with the brain of a cat.

Victor, who I think was March's boyfriend and is played by Frank Fowler, picks up three young women at the airport and brings them to the mansion, supposedly to be servants. March quickly chooses which body she wants. The pace really picks up after that (yawn). We see various scenes of the doctor's laboratory in the basement, which includes a couple of young women covered only by metal bands. There are other similarly titillating scenes in various places that I suppose were originally there to gain a young male audience. We also see bubbling liquids and inferences that the doctor is working with radioactive materials (oh my!).
