Storyline

Utterly devastated by causing his bride's drowning death while drunk-driving, Harry leaps off a railroad trestle into dark waters below. He is fished out and sent to a private sanitarium run by Dr. Brewer and Dr. Fargo. The two have a nefarious operation inside: selling beautiful young girls to Middle-Eastern sheikhs for their harems. Under mind control and hypnotic drugs, Harry is routinely sent out as a handsome bait to lure more captives. In his lucid moments, Harry explores upstairs after filching keys from sadistic orderly Otto. Admitting himself into off-limit quarters, he surprises a beautiful woman who claims she's movie star Marilyn Monroe, that another body was substituted for hers and that somebody rich and powerful had her sent here. She pleads for Harry's help in escaping. They eventually fall in love and, after harrowing and horrible ordeals below, including a fight to the death with the enraged Otto, flee the place, but not before Brewer and Fargo meet their ironic fate. Written by John Carr (IV)

The story about the movie
18 January 2008 | by (Saint-Ouen, France) – See all my reviews

According to John Carr himself, at first this movie was not finished. Then, some portions of the filmed materials were incorporated in the "Night Train to Terror" anthology. After that, Carr left USA for England for a time. When he came back to the USA he was amazed to find that the producers made a "complete" version of his movie, using almost all the materials filmed. This version was released on VHS as "Scream Your Head Off". Later, John Carr decided to finish his movie and shot new sequences with John Philip Law (noticeably older) and incorporated Marilyn Monroe (played by Francine York) in the story. This last (?) version is the one known as "Marilyn Alive and Behind Bars", "completed" in 1992. In résumé, there are THREE versions of this movie:

  • 1) one as a segment of "Night Train to Terror" - 2) the illegitimate


version, "Scream Your Head Off" (in VHS only) - 3) Marilyn Alive and Behind Bars. Apparently, during the first shooting some scenes were filmed twice, with girls more or less clothed. The nude version of these scenes was shown in "Night Train to Terror". It also seems that some shots in "Night Train to Terror" were gorier than the "Marilyn" version. But it COULD have been specially filmed material by the producers of "Night Train to Terror", as it was made for the two other movies "cannibalized": "Cataclysm", and "Death Wish Club". Special sequences involving SPFX were filmed when abridged versions of these two movies were included in "Night Train to Terror".
