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

[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.

It seems funny that for all the well-deserved plaudits this grade-Z gem attracts, nobody mentioned the great performance by the actor playing Danny's father, Larry Vincent! That's right, none other than "Sinister Seymour" himself doing the honors as good old Andrew Norton, the doc's faithful gardener in one of his too-few appearances on the big screen. All I can say is, if you were too young to remember the early 70's, you definitely missed one the best things about watching late-night TV in Los Angeles. Long before MST3K or Elvira, Seymour's "Fright Night" on Saturday nights was THE thing to watch. Nowadays, if I see "-Transplant-" in the local listings, I turn it on in the first fifteen minutes (before the killer gives him a messy send-off with a garden hoe) just to watch his rare talent. Ah, Larry, you left us too soon...
