Storyline

Amir, the benevolent ruler of Kalid, is dying, but there is hope. Freshly deceased, he is flown to the United States where Dr. Trenton transplants his brain into the body of a simpleton in a classic "assistant got the wrong kind of body" plot line. Dr. Trenton has a few nefarious plot twists of his own in mind, and then there's the thing with the dwarf and the women chained in the basement. It's up to Amir's friend Bob and wife Tracey to try and salvage this tale. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

20 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually enjoy the cult movies from Al Adamson but brain of blood was positively one of his worst,the movie poster makes it look like a pretty good movie.Adamson brings most of the cast from Dracula vs Frankenstein like Zandor Vorkov,Regina Carroll,Angelo Rosito and john bloom and the results are embarrassing.its a brain transplant ala Frankenstein.Kent Taylor plays a mad surgeon who pits the brain of the kindly ruler of another country into the head of a big drooling idiot played by John Bloom who plays the part like he did in the 1971 classic the incredible 2 headed transplant,which is way better then this film.Grant Williams (incredible shrinking man)plays another Dr who is the friend of the ruler.the plot thickens there's murders galore,one man is scorched by battery acid,there's explosions,a car chase and a monster that resembles the monster from the brain that would'nt die.i was really expecting a better movie but really i was disappointed.a bad movie thats so bad,its bad.
