Alternate Title: The Head That Wouldn't Die
Review Date: 12/31/16

Unbelievably awful. Bill Cortner is a mad scientist who is obsessed with full body transplantation. For some stupid reason, he decides to drive out of control and ends up killing his girlfriend in a car accident. He rescues her severed head from the burning wreckage and manages to keep it alive in a tray of fluid while he stalks strippers and models that he can graft the head onto. The self-loathing head wishes for death and revenge, and the crazed doctor finally gets what's coming to him when one of his failed experiments turns against him.

A terrible piece of drive-in movie trash that combines gruesome horror with sleazy strippers, cat fights, bathing suit contests, glamour models, and horny amateur photographers. The dialog is pretty bad, but seeing Dr. Cortner's assistant argue with a talking head is unintentionally funny.
