Originally filmed in the late 1960s as a robbery crime-drama, it sat on the shelf for two years before new footage incorporating the zombie plot were shot by investors who wanted a less serious horror flick. See more »
Director Al Adamson filmed the first version, Echo of Terror, a straightforward heist movie, in 1964. Adamson and producer Sam Sherman could not interest any distributor in releasing the movie. Several new scenes were added in 1965 (some featured actor John Carradine) and the result was a more horrific, science-fiction themed version, Psycho A Go-Go. That version was also unreleasable. Allied Artists TV approached Sherman with a request for a color horror movie to add to their package of movies for sale to American TV stations. Adamson responded by filming new scenes that added a zombie and mad doctor subplot, featuring Tommy Kirk, Kent Taylor and Regina Carroll, and the vastly re-edited film was sold to TV as The Man With The Synthetic Brain. A few scenes were cut for TV (including a strangulation murder), but Adamson added the violence and gore into a theatrical version of Synthetic Brain, titled Blood of Ghastly Horror. See more »
Bad Film within Very Bad Film within Extremely Bad Film
First they filmed a crime drama. Then they decided to make it into some sort of sci-fi flick, by adding footage which explains the criminal's behaviour in terms of a synthetic brain place in the head of a soldier. Then they decide to wrap this with some incredibly trashy low-budget early 70s zombie monster footage.
