 Need some help with a title!
I vaguely remember the scene, but the title escapes me. The scene goes something like this:

There is a "mad scientist" who has some creature behind a closed wooded door with a small hatch towards the top of the door to feed it. The part that is vivid is the creature somehow manages to grab his arm and rip it off! Mad scientist falls down leaving behind a rather gruesome bloody mess. Ripped arm was pretty realistic for a black and white CDF. Does this scene sound at all familiar to anyone?

 Re: Need some help with a title!
You are speaking of "The Brain that wouldn't die". The classic.

It is pretty much widely available, either on eBay or Amazon.com, (I believe... That is where I got mine a few years back anyway).

I would try to grab the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" version. The disc has two sides with the original movie on side two as well, without the MSTK treatment...

I know that the movie is considered pretty violent, even for today, so I would double check for unrated versions, restored, etc. Although, the MSTK version, as well as all the others, may be the unrated version anyway.

Hope that helps,

Dr, Who

 Re: Need some help with a title!
"The Brain that Wouldn't Die" is definitely an all-time CDF classic! It makes sense that one might forget which movie the "monster-in-the-closet scene" came from--as one might not think of the movie with the chick's head being kept alive in a broiler pan as being the same one with a mutated creature locked in a closet. I've only seen the aparently unrated one recently (on a few different DVDs), but as far as I remember the arm-ripping scene was most likely NOT in the version that we grew up with watching on CDF. I still recall it being scary to me as a kid nonetheless. There's a "collector's edition" out there that I'd be interested in checking out one of these days to see what kinds of special features it has on it!

A classic. I really enjoy the Synapse DVD. Too bad all CDF films don't get such treatment!

Strange as I do remember the arm ripping. Or at least the scenes of the doctor with the stump "painting" the walls with blood! LOL What collector's edition do you refer to? If you mean the Synapse disc, the only real extras are a booklet with an essay, a trailer and some stills including one nudie shot. Too bad there wasn't a commentary track or an interview with a cast member. It'd be interesting to hear what Virginia Leith has to say.

 Re: Need some help with a title!
Yeah, that was the collector's edition I was talking about. I don't own it and haven't seen it, so I wasn't really sure what was on it to make it "special". Maybe it's not worth picking up. I don't know whether the arm-ripping scene was in the version shown on CDF or not. It just seems like it would be the tamer, cut version. I seem to recall seeing it happen, but figured that I just put two and two together with my imagination based on what they DO show. Combine that with seeing the un-cut version in the past few years and funny tricks can be played with the memory. Does anyone else recall eitehr seeing, or not seeing, the arm-ripping scene n CDF?

I own the Synapse version, and after several purchases feel it to be the best version, quality and content wise, in my opinion.

I too distinctly remember watching "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" on CDF a couple of times and remember the arm ripping scene and being freaked out as a kid. Pretty hardcore for the time, and on TV. Don't remember the neck biting scene but it was a while ago.
