The Head 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
A scientists procedure for keeping body parts functioning is turned against him when a demented assistant decapitates him and keeps his head alive in the laboratory. The scientists brain is preserved in order to assist in a far more demonic experiment - the attachment of his hunchbacked nurses head to the body of a voluptuous stripper. Descending into the world of the head is a similar experience to that of a nightmare where the landscape is composed of dead trees dark passageways and sinister operating rooms populated by the extremes of society - hunchbacks strippers and madmen. When the scientist reveals his gruesome masterpiece - the dismembered head kept alive by wires machines and “serum z” - silent transfixed horror is the only possible reaction. The mysterious atmosphere is enhanced by stark imposing sets designed by herman warm (known best for his work on the cabinet of dr. Caligari) and a haunting gothic music score. starring: horst frank directed by : victor trivas written by: victor trivas music by: willy maltes & jacque lasry dvd details: effects theo nischwitz sets herman warm and bruno monden run time: 92 minutes number of discs: 1 originally released in 1959 black & white no region encoding; for global distribution.
