Donovan's Brain Review

This unique movie is something of a synthesis between 1940s film noir and 1950s science fiction—-only the criminal mastermind is a disembodied brain! Straddling the line between serious crime story and creature-feature camp, "Donovan’s Brain" can be appreciated for either quality, wherein lies its appeal. As for the DVD itself, the Midnite Movies print is mint, except for some noticeable but brief deterioration in the stock-footage scenes.
