The Brain That Wouldn’t Die

Special Guests: Jon Gillespie, Tom Sivak & Kevin Frei

Is The Brain that Wouldn’t Die a schlock classic or a treatise on unfettered male desire? Why not both?

We spoke to not one but three people who have worked on musical adaptations of the film (The Brain that Wouldn’t Die: A New MusicalThe Brain that Wouldn’t Die: In 3-D!, and Head: The Musical).

We’re joined by Professor Kevin Heffernan, author ofGhouls, Gimmicks, and Gold: Horror Films and the American Movie Business, 1953–1968.

The paths of podcasts twist and turn through mountains of miscalculations and often lose themselves in error and darkness!
