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!

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 get a reset in life. 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 wandering around with the brain of a cat.

Victor, who I think was March's boyfriend and is played by Frank Fowler (at this point, the naming trend becomes ridiculous - Victor as in Frankenstein, and all the Franks), picks up three young women at the airport and brings them to the mansion, supposedly to be servants. March quickly chooses the 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. Other similarly titillating scenes are in various places that I suppose were originally there to gain a young male audience.

HERE THERE WOULD BE SPOILERS IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY SPOIL THIS FILM

The alternate title of this bizarre and disturbing 1964 film is MONSTROSITY and after about 45 seconds you know why. A decrepit and cronelike multimillionairess, Mrs. Hetty March, is funding experiments in brain transplantation by Dr. Otto Frank (Sieg Heil when you say that!), who uses the corpses of beautiful young girls as research material in his odd form of nuclear medicine. Mrs. March is hoping that Dr. Frank can transplant her miserable old brain into the body of a lovely young woman.

As THE ATOMIC BRAIN opens, Dr. Frank, who has been out robbing graves a la Dr. Frankenstein, has managed to transplant a dog's brain into a man and create a buxom zombie girl who wanders around creepily in her sheer burial shroud. He moves on to the final stage of his experiment when Mrs. March hires three pretty domestics, dark-eyed and olive-skinned Anita from Spain, pretty blonde Nina from Austria, and Bea The Bombshell from Great Britain as potential transplant recipients.

Mrs. March grabs a grope here and there, practically drooling as she has the girls model sexy clothes and lingerie for her. Anita is quickly found to be of inferior quality (she has a large winestain birthmark), and so she is given to Dr. Frank for further experimentation. He transplants his cat's brain into her. Anita, in what is arguably the best role in the film, spends the rest of the movie chasing and eating rodents, climbing the eaves of the March mansion, yowling, hissing, and scratching people.

The vain, silly, but voluptuous Bea with her comes-and-goes faux Cockney accent is Mrs.
