Rich old woman uses body-snatching scientist to transplant her brain into guillible young women she hires as her servants.

A mess of a movie, barely held together by Dillman's unsavory narration and Eaton's nasty old lady. The only thing really monstrous in this film is Judy Bamber's "English" accent. It's still a hoot and quite deserving of its MST3K roasting. Best line: "She doesn't have a brain. There might be. . .advantages."

Filmed in 1958, but not released until 1964 (or 1963, according to IMDb, which seems unlikely). Also better known by its TV syndication title, The Atomic Brain.
