The Atomic Brain

Also known as Monstrosity
Directed by:  Joseph V. Mascelli
Written by:  Sue Dwiggins, Dean Dillman Jr, Jack Pollexfen, Vy Russell
Starring:  Marjorie Eaton, Frank Gerstle and Frank Fowler.
From IMDB:
"A rich but unscrupulous old woman plots with a scientist to have her brain implanted in the skull of a sexy young woman."
Yay - I found a trailer for it!
Four writers?  What the hell.  One kid huffing glue could have written this without any difficulty.
So the old woman gets three women to apply for a domestic job.  The old gal is pleased with the beauty of two of them but quite put off by the "homeliness" of the Mexican girl - who is, in fact, quite lovely.  At any rate, she has her mad scientist put the brain of a cat in her to see if the procedure works.  The Mexican girl ends up eating mice and climbing trees, so I guess it did.
Mrs March to hottie: "I don't want you running up and down those stairs.  You'll develop ugly muscles."
Mad Doctor:  "The cellular structure of this eye is being kept alive by these electrical vibrations."
Not sure why the Mad Doctor bothered to put Mrs. March's brain into a cat.  Why not just kill her?
This one certainly falls into the "so bad it's good" category - not great, but fun enough to watch.
I'm going to give it 2 Bloody Eyes out of 5.
