THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY / Filmplays Ltd. - 1957

It's time to Recycle A Fifties Monster Movie with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a fun little wild 'n weird Brit flick from the good old days of horror and sci-fi. Nice lobby card!

Eegah!! sent over this creepy soundclip from the movie, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the thermonuclear play dough coupler, NOW, Rufus The Gant! Here's our audio offering for... THE MAN WITHOUT A BODY!

Here are George Coulouris as the way too rich degenerate super prick, Karl Brussard, who's dying from a brain tumor, and Dungeon fave Robert Hutton as brain scientist, Dr. Merritt. We love Robert in THE COLOSSUS OF NEW YORK, INVISIBLE INVADERS, my two faves THE SLIME PEOPLE and THE VULTURE, THEY CAME FROM BEYOND SPACE, TORTURE GARDEN, CRY OF THE BANSHEE, TROG and TALES FROM THE CRYPT!

George is my pick as the most hateable, cold-hearted SOB in horror flicks. He's such a bitch in this, THE WOMAN EATER and BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY'S TOMB.

Dr. Merritt is working on some pretty damn weird experiments!.. Weird experiments dealing with re-animation!!

In fact, there are some things you're just not allowed to see!

Karl visits a wax museum, this tour guide tells tales of mystery, murder and mayhem from around the world.

But, Karl is most intrigued with the mind of Nostradamus.

So, with his money and influence, he steals the head of Nostradamus and takes it to Dr. Merritt to bring back to life! He wants the brain for his own.

I had to show this shot 'cause it's so cool!

Mission accomplished, the doctor can now communicate with the re-animated head of Nostradamus!

This is a great part where Karl has a seizure and the eyeballs are spinning around in his head!

Thing is, Nostradamus does not want to be alive again. Karl is foiled in the end when Nostradamus hangs himself and the head is severed from the body!!.. Weirdsville!!
