Man With the Screaming Brain

As a devoted Cambell fan I really wanted to like Man with the Screaming Brain. Not to say that Bruce isn’t great. He handles the part of a American scientist whose brain is split in two and shared by European gangster.

I love B-movies, give me Artic Boa any day and throw in Campbell for good measure, but the plot of Man was just so rehashed and tired that I kept flashing back to movies that had done it better. The one redeeming quality was Ted Raimi as the European doctor’s assistant who is way too in to American culture. He is funny and sweet (as Raimi always is).

If you want to see Campbell at his best pick up Bubba Ho-tep and leave this one for a Sci-Fi channel rerun.
