Joseph Green, originally of Baltimore, studied at the University of Maryland and joined the Army later on. He started his entertainment career as a television producer and eventually launched Joseph Green Productions for the distribution of foreign movies in the United States. He is best remembered for directing the 1959 horror cult classic The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, which was the forerunner of many similar feature films of that genre.

In a surgical operating room, a clinically dead man is brought back to life after Dr. Bill Cortner (Jason Evers) employs a highly controversial procedure that entails stimulating the brain electrically. His father (Bruce Brighton) the surgeon in charge ‘does not approve of the method, but is proud of the results’. When the mildly manic Dr. Cortner talks of eventual transplantation of organs and body parts by employing a new chemical compound he has developed, his conservative father reacts with skepticism. But Dr. Cortner Sr. has to go up to Denver for a medical convention This leaves Bill and his beautiful fiancé Jan Compton (Virginia Leith) alone for a weekend at their country house in the hills, from where his assistant Kurt has sent news of dire developments. In his hurry to get there, Bill drives the car into a guardrail and Jan is horribly killed.

Bill arrives at the brooding country house in a pathetic state. But his concern is not for himself - he has salvaged Jan’s head from the burning car wreckage and fully intends to ‘save’ her. Kurt is aghast, but helpless against Dr. Bill Cortner’s forceful personality. A horrific experiment finally results in the dead Jan’s severed head coming back to an appalling semblance of life. Now, employing his new adrenal serum, he intends to attach the resuscitated head to another body and restore Jan to full human life. As he goes to procure this body, the ghastly result of a previous experiment stays locked up in a closet of this hell-begotten country house.

As Jan regains full senses, she becomes aware of telepathic powers at her disposal, with which she communicates with the misshapen horror behind the closet door. When Bill returns with Dana (Adele Lamont) whose body he intends to join with for Jan’s head, all hell finally breaks loose...

Dr. Bill Cortner is hell-bent on advancing his newly discovered surgical procedure for the transplantation of body parts and organs. He has even developed a special formula that effectively overcomes the usual problems associated with this area of surgery. What the world at large doesn’t know is that he has been conducting some infamous experiments of the procedure in his private country home - with horrifying results. On his way there to meet an emergency with one of these experiments, he crashes his car into a guardrail, killing his fiancé Jan Compton. Jan is consumed in the ensuing blaze, but Bill salvages her head and restores it to nightmarish life in his private laboratory. Now he needs a body to graft Jan’s head back on. Meanwhile, Jan’s discorporate head discovers that it has telepathic powers and puts these to use in awakening a monstrous horror in the closet. As terror follows terror in this fast-paced screamer, the viewer can only hold onto the seat to keep from being swept along by the unfolding nightmare.


"I wouldn’t watch this in either mixed company or with the kids - there is just so much that an impressionable mind can handle. The Brain That Wouldn’t Die is genuinely creepy, and not least of all because it was made at a time when transplantation was still a controversial subject. In that sense, this classic feature film from A2ZCDS is almost prophetic...."
Customer's Name : Enrique Ascencion (Las Cruces, New Mexico)

"I don’t know where A2ZCDS gets these vintage gems from, but I totally freaked on The Brain That Wouldn’t Die . Never mind the rudimentary premise - it was still convincing and absorbing. Jason Evers does a highly credible job of enacting a modern-day Dr. Frankenstein. Great watching, and it did set the marquee on fire back then."
Customer's Name : Yolanda Polanski (Lewiston, Maine)
