THE MIDNIGHT MAFIA: The Brain That Wouldn't Die

“Alive — without a body — fed by an unspeakable horror from hell!” It’s been twenty years since this campfest made its legendary appearance on MST3K — now it’s time to experience this freaky-deaky slab of Atomic Age weirdness in 35mm for the first time! Featuring Virginia Leith looking very Joan Crawford-esque as the iconic “Jan In The Pan” (the disembodied head containing the titular Brain), The Brain That Wouldn’t Die is a gas, with its perfectly ridiculous arrogant scientist/decapitated fiancée/medical experiment troika in full bloom. Scuzzy strip clubs, telepathic powers, snaggle-toothed mutants caged in the basement, a growing resentment of asshole husbands — what else could they possibly have crammed into this, c’mon now! Fun with a capital FUN.
Dir. Joseph Green, 1962, 35mm, 81 min.
