Where's the Rest of Me?
7 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Positively ghoulish tale of a scientist (Meat Loaf Aday), who lives in some Latin country overrun by a revolutionary war, serving as their "doctor of death" when revolutionaries are caught, sentenced for execution, and has developed a serum which keeps a corpse alive so that he can use the dead body's organs. Three "success stories", football player Joe (amusing part for Pittsburgh Steeler's legend Franco Harris), singer Regina (Black-Eyed Susan), and JJ Marshall (Drew Eliot) are gathered around the table of his mansion for which Dr. Willard Wingite (Meat Loaf) offers a proposal—to be benefactors who contribute financially to his organ-harvesting venture. When Joe and Regina, during a moment of horseplay, knock over serum into a vat (feeding the tubes which enter the corpse's bloodstream) keeping the corpse from rotting, "Adam" (Frank Tarsia) rises from his table wanting his organs back! Joe had a knee replacement that was a new and improved version of his old one, allowing him to set records on the field. Regina's vocal chords were restored and better than ever. JJ has better eyesight thanks to the eye surgery performed by Wingite. All three represent greedy, self-absorbed types with bright ideas of Wingite performing more "miracles" for them personally, not just the public at large who can afford the scientist's procedure and the serum that contributes to the surgical breakthroughs. The macabre aspect of this tale of Monsters, titled "Where's the Rest of Me?" is that Adam slowly resurrects himself by seizing upon each person who has an organ of his. The end shows that Wingite's clients weren't the only ones who benefited from the organs Adam's corpse provides, a heart removed with a hatchet. While most of the grislier moments are not shone on-screen, the subject matter itself is still rather disturbing. No one can fault Adam for wanting what's rightfully his. The show was too cheap to add authenticity to the setting and I never for a second believed they were located in a more exotic locale. The characters are so loathsome that when Adam attacks a member of the group, none of them help each other, so they get what's coming to them.
