"Donovan's Brain"

Brains on Ice! week continues at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing "Donovan's Brain," starring Lew Ayres, who achieved stardom as the benevolent Dr. Kildare, here playing yet another kindly doctor who nurtures a living brain (kept alive in a fish tank) only to have its sinister personality consume him.

Curt Siodmak’s oft-adapted science fiction novel receives a no-frills treatment at the hands of director Felix Feist (THE DEVIL THUMBS A RIDE) that nonetheless captures its essence better than other attempts, which include THE LADY AND THE MONSTER (1944) and THE BRAIN (1962).
