The movie itself is yet another horror-inducing-severed-body-part monstrosity, in the same genre as 'The Crawling Hand' and several others. The title body-part became a semi-recurring character on the show, beloved by MSTies as 'Jan in the Pan.'
The host segments in this episode are quite good, as Mike finds his footing in his new home and builds a relationship with Crow and Tom Servo. And a gutter-bumber-chute could come in real handy here in Seattle.
What did you think of this review?
Nelson's debut "experiment" is the delirious 1960 head-transplant horror The Brain That Wouldn't Die. And while Nelson is occasionally stiff, particularly during the invention exchange (a longtime Hodgson staple, and soon to be excised), he and robot pals Crow and Tom Servo rise to the occasion during the film, which is filled with memorable zingers (Crow: "He's keeping her alive with Grey Poupon!"). Rhino's DVD presents the uncut, slightly gory version of Brain with and without the MST3K treatment. --Paul Gaita
