The Thing with Two Heads

Film, Horror

Time Out says

One of AIP's carefully cultivated jokes-in-bad-taste, in which the head of a terminally ill, racist brain surgeon (Milland) is grafted onto the body of a death row black (Grier) intent on clearing his name. This outrageous notion is milked for all it's worth as the two heads wisecrack away, tussle for control of 'the body', and charge around pursued by some inept cops. Special effects are in keeping with the general tone of the film (the difference between Milland's florid face in close-up and the ashen colour of the wax model used for long shot is hilariously obvious), and there are sufficient laughs along the way to sustain interest. Don't expect too much, though.
