We gave it a C+

The Brain That Wouldn’t Die has an equally familiar basic plot (mad scientist tampering in God’s domain), but it’s grimmer (a fair amount of gore), sleazier (B-girl catfights), and cruel to its leading lady, an attractive actress who spends most of the picture shot from the neck up, with her seemingly disembodied head sitting in a laboratory pan. Horror-hostess Elvira does her usual amusing single-entendre wraparounds for both flicks (a conversation with a lecherous cucumber is a high point), but they are otherwise presented uncut and uninterrupted. C+
