I watch these movies mostly for Elviras comments not so much the movies.
this time Ihad to say something about the movie quality,the brain that wouldn't die print wasn't centered when they transfered it to dvd.the shots of Elviras comentary is right but the movie is off center one side of screen has a wider black band than the other you would think they would have cought that before making the dvd. the manster film is ok no problem with it. maybe they will watch that now and fix the brain that wouldn't die. thats the only complaint about this double feature.

In this double feature of Elvira's Movie Macabre, Elvira hosts two monster movies that aren't half bad. Problem is, they aren't half good either. Lol. Anyway, The Brain That Wouldn't Die would be a very boring movie, if it weren't for a good catfight, a couple of gore scenes, and a cool monster ending. This movie actually was way ahead of its time, including a man having his arm torn off, and there is a lot of blood. Pretty good for a movie that was made in 1959.
Then there is Manster. It has a man with two heads. Like most of the movies shown on Elvira's Movie Macabre, it is a slow movie, but it has a great payoff. Once the man sprouts a second head, there is a lot of destruction and action. Problem is, a lot of the action takes place in total darkness so it's hard to make out. But what the heck. The monster...oh excuse me...the manster looks cool.
And as always, Elvira is a hoot. And I would never watch either of these movies without her. She can make a bad movie bearable and entertaining.

Format: DVD
Horror hostess Elvira (aka Cassandra Peterson) revisits her roots with the revival of her syndicated series Elvira's Movie Macabre. In this program, our buxom hostess introduces various bad movie treasures while keeping up a snarky commentary about what is going on. It's cheesy, filled with double entendres, and just plain silly--but that's the point. Elvira is present on all commercial breaks enacting up some sort of shenanigans, but also literally pops up within the film to enhance the experience. Obviously, the joke is that the films she is screening are supposed to be terrible--but not all bad movies are created equal. The series, in general, is a must-see treat for lovers of the absurd, but some of the movies definitely make more of an impact than others.

In this double feature, the DVD set ignites with a couple of mad scientist/science gone awry epics "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" and "The Manster."

The Brain That Wouldn't Die: (3 stars for movie, 4 1/2 stars for cult appeal, Elvira's shtick is that she's preparing for a game show) A classic in the mad scientist genre, this film has a lot going for it. A rogue surgeon is doing unauthorized, but cutting-edge, work in the field of transplantation. His medical superiority is unrivaled and Jason Evers haughty performance is just the right mix of bluster and bravado. When a tragic accident harms his fiancee, he reaches into car wreckage and retrieves her head in a delightfully preposterous moment. It's back to the lair for some silly special effects and some moralizing--but then it's off to find a new body (preferably from some back alley lowlife). Things don't go as planned resulting in one of the longest and most ridiculous death scenes in cinema history and a mutation that just needs love.
