The Girl with Two Brains
2 June 2005 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

(Miner Spoilers) Somewhat strange murder mystery that combines police work with brain-cell transplant biology to track down a serial killer. Petite and pretty Callain Person, Nicollette Sheridan, is both the hunter and the hunted in this film as she takes over the mind of the "Rose Peddle" serial killers latest victim and thus brings him out of his lair, and into the open, where she set a trap for him.

Murdering four attractive blond and blue eye young women the killer makes a fatal mistake on his part, when he's interrupted trying to strangle victim #5 Marlena Wells, Stellina Rusich, who survived.

Even though Marlena is in a coma with no hope of coming out of it the fact that she not dead gives Callain the chance to break the "Rose Peddle" serial murder case wide open. Not just being an FBI agent Callain is also a lab assistant to her boyfriend and biologist Arthur Lefcort,Peter Coyote, who's experimenting with transplanting brain cells from one rat to another to see if the rat receiving the cells has the same mind of the rat that it got the cells from.

Having Arthur reluctantly implant a number Marlena's brain-cells, that she took from the FBI crime lab, into her brain Callain slowly begins to see what's in Marlena's mind and it's those images that leads her to track down who the serial killer is. Callain at first feeling that Marlean's boyfriend Jack, Peter Outerbridge, murdered her, by seeing him a in disturbing flashback. It later turns out that he only broke up with Marlena, just days before she was assaulted, and had nothing to do with her being put in the hospital.

Not telling her boss Agent Cargil, Stacy Keach, about her mental condition he feels that Callain is some kind of weirdo but as the evidence piles up,confirming her "hunches", he slowly begins to accept her conclusions and in the end it's that belief in Callain's psychic ability by him that saves her life. There's a strange and interesting relationship between Callain and Arthur in the movie that at first makes you wonder if your seeing the same movie or two films with different actors and Miss. Sheridan being in both of them spliced together.

You never really understand what Callain is doing in Arthur lab as his lab assistant and then being out on the streets as an FBI agent,is she holding down two jobs at the same time? Arthur who at first gave Callain the brain-cell transplant later feels that it may very well destroy her identity and lead her to become Marlena. Arthur insists that Callain throw away the bottle of pills that he gave her to keep her body from rejecting Marlena''s brain-cells, which Callain doesn't. Was it that Arthur was afraid that he'll lose Callain to Marlena's boyfriend Jack who she was starting to become romantically involved with?

The fact that she knows so much about the "Rose Peddle Killer" does, like Callain predicted, bring him out in the open to finish the job on Marlena that he started but it also brings him straight into the trap that Callain, together with her boss FBI Agent Cargill, set for him.
