I guess I saw the somewhat sequel of this The Thing with Two Heads, I didn't really care for it to be honest. Parts of it were kinda funny but the end chase scene went on for wayyyy too long. In other words, I was hoping this one would be better and really it was (it has Bruce Dern and Casey Kasem!). It had a groovy style, and it was far more action packed and a higher budget I would imagine. This one begins at the scene of a murder and an attempted murder, here we meet a Maniac who was deemed insane by a court of law, but he escapes from the Asylum! We also meet a Scientist who is obsessed with giving everything two heads (including monkeys, foxes, bunnies, snakes...well you get the picture). Also in this equation are a dim-witted Farm boy, the Scientist's Assistant, and of course Linda (the Scientist's girlfriend who wants more time with her Man). When the Maniac breaks into the Scientist's house let's just say he gets a little more than he bargained for. The solution? Attach the head of the Maniac onto the Dimwit of course! This does have several murders, it's relatively fun and easy to watch despite the cheesy nature of this and lack of explanation or rather plausibility. It's much better than The Thing with Two Heads but let's face it, it's not exactly a brilliant film!
