Product Overview

Prepare to be scared senseless with this shocking horror-fest that's bursting with "startling special effects" (Los Angeles Daily News). Nancy Davis (Hell Cats Of The Navy) stars with Lew Ayres (Salem's Lot) in this "terrifying film experience" (Los Angeles Examiner) that'll blow your brain and fry your mind! Dr. Patrick Cory (Ayres) has a hideous hobby--he keeps brains alive! So when the brain of dead murderer W.H. Donovan falls into his possession, bringing him back becomes his obsession. But the cunning cranium has its own agenda--to control the doctor's mind through telepathic messages! Now, Cory's wife (Davis) must put a stop to the devious brain before it destroys the man she loves--and her in the process!
