Dr. Roger Girard is a rich scientist conducting experiments on head transplantation. His caretaker has a son, Danny, who, although fully grown, has the mind of child. One day an escaped psycho-killer invades Girard's home, killing Danny's father before being gunned down himself. With the maniac dying and Danny deeply unsettled by his father's death, Dr. Girard decides to take the final step and transplant the killer's head onto Danny's body. Of course, things go horribly wrong and the two-headed creature escapes to terrorize the countryside.Written by

Casey Kasem was a big name in radio, and during the 60's was one of the top talents on 1110 KRLA on Los Angeles airwaves. A fellow DJ was the very popular Dave Hull. The "Hullabalooer" (as he was known) can be heard in this movie providing the voice for a radio announcement. See more »

[as the 2 headed monster wakes up]
Whatta you know. He can talk.
Who are you?
I'm your brother.
I don't have a, a brother.
You do now. I don't like it any better. But until we can do something about it, I'm running this monster, understand?
Uh, my neck hurts.
My neck hurts, stupid. Don't you see what these maniacs had done to us?
Stop jerking around. You and I are now one, dummy. Let's stand up. I'll show you.

The "Midnight Movies" DVD from MGM has violence restored that was cut for its original "GP" rating. Most notably the death of the retarded man's father with a shot of his bloody head from the garden rake and the murder of the biker has additional hits and shots of biker's face being bloody from the chain beating by the creature.

The incredible two headed transplant is actually an inedible pile of junk. You cant digest it, nor should you be fed such a badly cooked meal.
The two headed guy looks exactly like one person, with another standing behind him, but putting his head on the guy in front's shoulder. They must have had a budget of hundreds for special effects, and that must have been spent on cage in Bruce Dern's (Rodger) high tech lab. We know it was high tech, because there was a flashing light.
Its only a tribute to Bruce Dern's unique characterizations that he survived this film. When cast correctly, he is a first rate actor. No one could have been cast correctly in this film, it had to have been a joke. It reminds you of those 1930 horror movies, only not as well done. And someone should have told the director and producer that that kind of drivel was no longer scary, and was always inane. The second head on the poor oaf that got it looked worse than some high school kid's costume.
Fittingly, the director (Anthony M. Lanza) never directed again, and apparently never played a part in another movie for 23 years, when he was listed as "editor" in a second rate film. Its hard to tell whose fault this film was, however, and we all need a paycheck.
