What It’s About: On the run after an unlikely escape from the guillotine, Dr. Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) attempts a brain transplant operation, with disastrous results.
Why Watch it Today?: It’s National Doctor’s Day. What better way to celebrate than watching Peter Cushing as the most dedicated doctor you don’t want to come into your life?
Other Choices: We’ve previously featured Frankenstein Created Woman, Re-Animator, and Basket Case for Doctor’s Day, but there are a wealth of other choices including Mad Love, Eyes Without a Face, and The Brain that Wouldn’t Die, to name just a few.
