Brain of Blood1971

  • 2.3
When the producers of the BLOOD ISLAND series had no new Philippine horror film for their upcoming season, filmmakers Al Adamson and Sam Sherman were hired to create this BLOOD ISLAND-inspired followup. Busy on another project, Eddie Romero felt that Adamson and Sherman could provide a similar kind of product. Back from the Romero productions were many familiar elements: star Kent Taylor, the evil dwarf (Angelo Rossitto), blood-soaked "splatter" operations, a mad doctor's lab and the original music score from MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND. So well was the Philippine formula followed that many recent writers have assumed this film was shot in the Philippines. It was, however, filmed in Hollywood, with most familiar locations avoided to try to replicate the look of the previous productions. Joining Kent Taylor is a stellar cast including Grant Williams (THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN), Reed Hadley (RACKET SQUAD), Regina Carrol (DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN) and Vicki Volante (HORROR OF THE BLOOD MONSTERS). The hulking giant is played by John Bloom, Frankenstein monster of DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN, while that film's "Dracula," Zandor Vorkov, also has an important role. The transplanting of human brains and electronic device implantation play important roles in a story loaded with blood, shock and sheer fright.

Review up right now at theaterofguts.com here's a sample

"Surgeons hack into a round white melon as the most crimson looking poster paint splashes out, I feel as if I can hear Bob Ross softly intone "Let's use it for the landscape on this field of happy little trees". The operator's sticky bloody fingers click a camera, in what looks like an abandoned Dentist's office, maybe this will be explained later. "
