Three scientists attempt to keep alive the brain of millionaire megalomaniac W.H. Donovan after an otherwise fatal plane crash. The brain has other ideas and begins to possess people.

IMDb

 

Chad chose Donovan’s Brain because when he saw it as a kid, he wasn’t scared by it at all. Wait, what? True, but being a Curt Siodmak fan and someone who always appreciates John Hamilton (Perry White in Adventures of Superman, 1952-1958), he decided to give it another go.  He appreciates Donovan’s Brain more this time, describing it as a good, solid, Sci-Fi B-movie with good performances all around, most especially, that of the brain.

Donovan’s Brain is also a lot of fun for Daphne. She just loves a growing, pulsating brain in a fish tank. Whitney thinks it is pretty neat knowing that Donovan’s Brain is based on a book by the author who wrote Universal’s The Wolf Man (1941). Jeff describes Donovan’s Brain as a science fiction picture with no science, just a lot of fiction and magical thinking. He’s particularly impressed with Lew Ayre’s performance as the doctor possessed by Donovan’s brain, and always loves Gene Evans and Steve Brodie.

If you’re in the mood for some 50s Sci-Fi B-move goodness, Donovan’s Brain is available to stream (at the time of this writing) from the Classic Horror Movie Channel and as PPV on Amazon. The movie is also currently available on physical media as a Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule is one chosen by Jeff: Son of Frankenstein (1939), featuring Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Basil Rathbone, and Lionel Atwill.
