In the mood for something cheesy, I hit the local video rental place in search of an entertainingly-bad cult b-flick. 'The Thing With Two Heads' DVD had just recently hit the shelves, so I decided to take a gamble on it. I'd never seen it before, and until now it was almost impossible to find on video. Fortunately, I was in for a treat- it is indeed as silly and corny as I'd hoped it'd be!
A weird mix of horror, medical drama, blaxploitation, sci-fi, and chase/suspense, 'The Thing...' can't quite figure out exactly what it wants to be. Never the less, this little confusion is what adds to the movie's cheesy charm. Then of course there's the not-so-special effects: check out the scenes with the two-headed gorilla and our double-noggined marquee man as he (they?) outrun the cops on a dirt bike!
Grier & Ray Milland's on-screen chemistry worked about as well as oil & water, which would be an absolute disaster were this a good flick. But here, it's practically a necessity! Also, if you wanna experience the most incompetent police force since the Keystone Kops & the trashing of more fuzz cars than you'd see in an entire season of 'The Dukes of Hazzard', then the climactic chase scene through a grassy Southern California valley will surely make your day!

Have you ever wondered how cool it would be to have a second head grafted on your body, right next to yours? I have, and so has Hollywood, the land of candy cane dreams and pennywhistle fantasies. Now I know some will say, 'Why do we need another two headed freak type movie? We've already got two entries in the `two-headed man' genre with The Manster (1962) and The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant (1971).' And I might agree, if not for the fact that neither of those two films really deals with the social ramifications that the AIP release of The Thing with Two Heads (1972) touches on, specifically what happens when you graft the head of a white bigot's head on a soul brother's body, the consequences being pure cinematic gold (well, okay, maybe not, but it's sure fun to watch).
The Thing with Two Heads was directed by Lee Frost, who also gave us such lurid exploitation pictures as The House on Bare Mountain (1962), The Defilers (1965), and Policewomen (1974) and stars Oscar winning actor Ray Milland (no, he didn't win the award for this film, but for the 1945 film The Lost Weekend) and former L.A. Rams football player Roosevelt `Rosey' Grier. With respect to Milland, it certainly is interesting, even a bit sad, to see a once great star wallow uncomfortably in number of trashy 70's B pics like this or Frogs (1972), just to name a few.
As the film starts, we are introduced to Dr. Maxwell Kirshner (Milland), a highly successful surgeon who runs a number of clinics specializing in human transplants. We also learn that Maxwell is terminally ill, and is conducting a secret experiment in his basement, one designed specifically in mind with the possibility of saving his life. If you guess it has something to do with transplanting his head onto another body, you'd be right.

This movie is a sequel of sorts...but not really....to the Incredible 2 Headed Transplant. It stars Ray Milland near the end of his long career and Rosey Grier. It's sort of a cross genre movie. It isn't just a science-fiction movie, it is also a blaxploitation movie.

I didn't exactly enjoy watching Ray Milland play a bigot but that is what he is in this movie. Later in life he played the bad guy in a bunch of movies.
Most people criticize former stars for taking on movies such as these after they are no longer big 'A' list stars and call it 'sad' that they are in these movies. I don't agree. They automatically assume they need the money. Sometimes this might be the case, but certainly not always. It's certainly possible that older actors who are no longer leading men just want to act because they are bored and sometimes even enjoy starring in these types of movies. Charlton Heston is a perfect example. He just didn't want to star in biblical epics and such and later in his career he chose to star in less serious science fiction movies because he wanted to. Other actors may choose to be in lesser movies just to get a chance to direct. There are millions of people in Hollywood who would give anything to have a starring role in a movie such as this one. So there is no need to call it 'sad'.

As far as the movie goes....it is better than The 2 Headed Transplant but that's not saying much.

Positives....the makeup is much better and they fake heads look much better than they did in the previous movie. The ;acting is pretty good with the exception of Rosey Grier, which is understandable since he was a football player looking to cash in on his star power and act. The plot is good in the first half of the movie.

Schlock movie godsend, Ray Milland (X: THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES, FROGS, THE ATTIC, THE SEA SERPENT) stars as pompous, bigoted Dr. Max Kirshner, transplant expert, extraordinaire. Max' s aging, physical frame is giving out on him, so he seeks a replacement body for his ancient head. Enter NFL legend, Roosevelt "Rosey" Grier as convicted murderer, Jack Moss. Yep, THE THING WITH TWO HEADS is stitched together, w/ Moss's massive, african-american body carrying around the dual domes! This is made possible through the magic of alternating dummy heads for long shots, and Milland standing behind Grier, w/ his face over Rosey's shoulder, for closeups. The result is pure gold! TTWTH must have been one fun movie to make! This 70s gem contains the interminably loonnng, THING-WITH-TWO-HEADS-MOTORCYCLE-RAMPAGE sequence, where an entire police force is relieved of their wrecked cruisers! It also features the MAN-IN-A-GO-RILLA-SUIT-WITH-TWO-HEADS-LABORATORY-TIRADE scene as well! All this and a race relations subtext too! Co-stars Roger Perry (COUNT YORGA: VAMPIRE, THE RETURN OF COUNT YORGA) as Dr. Philip Desmond. For god's sake, what are you waiting for?!...
