      Audience Member What was in the water of the early 70s to make this movie and The Thing with Two Heads within a year of one another? This one has Bruce Dern putting the head of a serial killer onto the body of the son (John Bloom, who was the monster in Dracula vs. Frankenstein) of the man who he has just murdered, because that's how movie science works. What happens when you combine the head of a murderer with the head of a manchild with the mental capacity of an eight-year-old and an extremely powerful body? You get murder and mayhem. Second Marilyn Pat Priest gets kidnapped and Casey Kasem comes to the rescue and you know, I'm a huge fan of movies where Casey show up, like Disco Fever, in which he tries to find cocaine in the carpet of a nightclub inside an airplane. American-International Pictures put this on a double bill with Scream and Scream Again, but poor Bruce Dern had his check bounce and when he went to the set the next day to get paid, there was no set left. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic movie - if you were a ten-year old from the 70s when it was first released. Otherwise, it’s a one star movie today Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/21/23 Full Review eric w This is a big steaming pile of misogynist turd. I mean no one is remotely interesting or likeable. Not even Casey Kasem honey voice can salvage this hideous tribute to the worst woman-hating of The Handmaids Tale. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie reminded me there are not enough films being made nowadays that feature an Of Mice and Men style hulking man-child. Luckily, this film does. Bruce Dern plays a mad scientist who puts the head of a deranged killer on the body of on such hulking man-child, creating the two-headed beast mentioned in the film's title. Besides Dern, there is also Casey Kasem and Pat Priest, best know as Marilyn Munster on "The Munsters." Overall, this is a pretty terrible film, but it's so bad that connoisseurs of bad cinema will get quite a bit of ironic entertainment out of it. I think the scene when the two-headed monster takes on a biker gang was the highlight of the film for me. But if you need a watch a two-headed movie, watch the one where a racist Ray Milland has his head attached to Rosey Greer and watch the two bicker about the issues of the day as only a 1970s exploitations film can. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member In poor tastes, absolutely none of the characters are likable, which makes this a hard watch. The effects are silly, but as is the concept, none of it really makes sense. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Poor cutaways. Awkward camera moments. Really bad B-movie, I'm generally not into these types of films. But this one had a really poor or non-existing plot. It was confusing or didn't seem to go anywhere. It was a snorefest for at least 60-90 minutes. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
