With a stellar cast of British character actors I was looking forward to seeing this film.Alas I was very disappointed.There are certain similarities to The Scorcerers but they are all invidious.The problem with this film was that it didn't seem to know what it really wanted to be.A thriller or sci fi or mad doctor,and as a result it fell between all of them and quite frankly was both boring and silly.In any event the idea of being able to reclaim the living brain of someone who has died in an aircraft explosion is a bit fantastic.Good to see the likes of Cecil Parker,Miles Malleson and Bernard Lee but otherwise not much else to keep your attention.
