Description by

In 1971 Kane Lynn, head of Hemisphere Pictures needed a horror film to follow the hit Beast of Blood. In stepped Sam Sherman, a partner in Independent-International Pictures Corp., offering to produce a super-fast low budget follow-up. With the blessing of Kane's former partner Eddie Romero, Sherman and Al Adamson were hired to create Brain of Blood. Shot by Adamson in an amazing eight days, they were able to convince many that this was a Philippine sequel to Romero's Blood Island series by avoiding filming locations that could be identified as Hollywood and appropriating the music score from Mad Doctor Of Blood Island.

Familiar faces reappear including veteran actor Kent Taylor, whose long film career included a role in Death Takes A Holiday (1934) but is best remembered as TV's Boston Blackie. Taylor had appeared in Independent- International's Satan's Sadists, Brides Of Blood and others. He is joined by Grant Williams (The Incredible Shrinking Man - 1957) and Sherman's favorite evil dwarf, Angelo Rossitto who was a veteran of Tod Browning's Freaks as well as Bela Lugosi classics The Corpse Vanishes, Scared To Death, Spooks Run Wild, and had appeared in the Independent-International hit, Dracula Vs. Frankenstein. They are joined by beloved Hollywood veteran Reed Hadley (Zorro's Fighting Legion and star of TVs' "Racket Squad").

A hideous monster on a deadly rampage, a blood-spattered, horrific medical procedure by a mad doctor, and an all-star cast created a cult drive-in horror classic!

BONUS content includes original trailer, commentary track by Samuel M. Sherman and photo gallery.
