The Brain That Wouldn't Die, also known as The Head That Wouldn't Die, is a 1959 science-fiction/horror film directed by Joseph Green and written by Green and Rex Carlton. The film was completed in 1959, but was not released until May 3, 1962.
Dr. Bill Cortner (Jason Evers) is a successful scientist with a beautiful fiancée named Jan Compton (Virginia Leith). After a horrible car accident decapitates Jan, Dr. Cortner collects her severed head and rushes it to his laboratory, where he revives it and manages to keep it alive in a liquid-filled tray.
Dr. Cortner now decides to commit murder to obtain an attractive new body to attach to his fiancée's head. As he hunts for a suitable specimen, Jan begins to hatch some murder plans of her own. Filled with hatred for Cortner because he won't let her die, she communicates telepathically with a hideous mutant in the laboratory cell, telling it to kill the scientist.
The mutant monster begins by killing the doctor's relatively harmless assistant: after feeding the monster and doing some general cleanup around the laboratory, he unwittingly stands before the hatch in the door of the monster's cell/closet (which he accidentally left unlocked), whereupon the monster thrusts his giant arm through; grabs the assistant's arm; and pulls so hard that we ultimately find the assistant dead, with no forearm at all and just a bare humerus attached to his shoulder, with blood smeared and pooled all over the place.
After searching for some suitable subjects, Dr. Cortner brings one to his residence and, drugging her drink so that she loses consciousness, carries her down to the lab. Jan protests when Dr. Cortner explains his plan to transplant her head onto this new, body, and he summarily tapes her mouth shut. Once again, the scientists stands in front of the door to the monster's cell, with the hatch, once again, open. This time, the monster grabs the scientist through the door and, securing him in a headlock, applies such force that the door is torn from its hinges. We finally see the monster, the end is nigh!
