Atomic Brain (Monstrosity) Synopsis

The movie tells the story of an elderly woman who uses her vast fortune to convince an eccentric yet brilliant scientist to provide her with a new, youthful body. This done by hiring three immigrant young women, with the promise of helping them become film stars. The old woman then chooses which of the girls she finds most beautiful, and sets about replacing the young woman’s brain with her own.

 

This story revolves around an old woman, Mrs. March who is getting tired of, well, being old. In a moment of inspiration, she decides to hire Dr. Otto Frank to transplant her brain into a younger woman’s body. The fact that Otto’s only successful operation to date has been to transplant a dog’s brain into a man does not damper Mrs. March’s enthusiasm. For some reason a nuclear reactor is installed in March’s basement, a gaggle of European kids comes over, brains get switched (one is switched with a cat!), the reactor blows up, and, well, need I say more?

An elderly woman uses her vast fortune to convince an eccentric yet brilliant scientist to transplant her brain into a new, youthful body.
