THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE - 1962 / Adele Lamont with Foreign Insert Nude Scene

It's time for Tabonga to give his Special Saturday Treat to all our Halloween Countdown 2013 gang, here at The Dungeon!.. I discovered something so very interesting while reviewing the bonus features on a DVD I recently scored. I have my favorite fifties and sixties Scream Queens, Faith Domergue, Beverly Garland, Yvette Vickers, Sanita Pelkey, but, my very favorite is the Jersey brunette bombshell, Adele Lamont! So, hang on for something I don't think many people even know about...

Here's the double feature bill Eegah!! and I saw at the theater back in 1962, the year we graduated from the 8th grade!

Adele is freakin' hot, this viewer cannot get enough of her!

Dumb ass Bill wants to decapitate her, but, she's saved by Eddie, the monster in the closet!

Okay then, here we go... If anyone knows where to find a foreign print of this flick, please let us know immediately!

Of course, that's the recognizable face of Sammy Petrillo there as one of the photographers.

Adele was my favorite even before viewing this clip!

You can find the great bonus foreign scene on this recent four movie DVD release, only about $3 used on Amazon!

There were photographers in those photos? I didn't see any... Oh wait. I see. If I block out the lady who dressed hurridly, I can just barely make out that there are other people in the photo. Who knew?

I don't know how common this has ever been (except with nudity), but this is one of those movies that's had a scary scene blacked out when shown on TV. I first saw it very early, and the screen went black at the end, the moment the poor "closet creature" broke open the door. Of course, I though the scene was actually made that way, so he would be left to your imagination.
You can imagine how it was the second time I saw the movie (which was also late at night) and it got to that scene - I expected that blank screen, and instead I saw him!

Always loved this movie. When I first saw it on the Saturday night Chiller Movie time slot in Detroit in the 1970s, it was still considered quite shocking and scary. It's one of those movies that piles one ghastly thing on after another, perfect for late-night TV. My mother used to leave the room when the arm tearing off part came on. She couldn't stand watching that...it turned my stomach, too! It was filmed in Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow, NY in the fall of '59. Julian Detmer's mansion was used for the exterior. It burned down in 1971. I have a photo of the location now, a condo subdivision (sigh). Also have an awesome MP3 of the full, uncut record, "The Web" used in the movie. Rock on, BTWD! :)

I first saw this movie in the late 70s on a UHF channel. I have since seen the MST3k version many times. I seem to recall the UHF viewing had a few extra seconds of footage. The monster made it out of the house and set Adele down in the front yard. The movie ended with Jan summoning him to come back to die with her in the burning house. Has anyone else seen this version? Am I just remembering the end to another flick? Great site! Thanks...

Anon - You must be thinking of another movie, Eegah!! and I saw this when it came out in 1962 and that never happened, also, I'm sure the ones on DVD are the full length versions, I've checked the times on them..
