The Incredible 2-Headed Transplant is a 1971 American science fiction/horror film directed by Anthony Lanza (Dangerous Love) from a screenplay by James Gordon White (The Thing with Two Heads) and John Lawrence.



Bruce Dern (Swamp DevilTwixtCoffin Baby), Pat Priest (Marilyn in The Munsters; Bewitched), Casey Kasem (voice of Shaggy in Scooby-Doo), Albert Cole (The Astral Factor), John Bloom (Dracula vs. FrankensteinBrain of Blood), Berry Kroeger ((Nightmare in Wax; The Mephisto WaltzDemon Seed), Larry Vincent (The Witchmaker; Monster Rally; Doctor Death: Seeker of Souls), Jack Lester (Die Sister, Die!).



Doctor Roger Girard (Bruce Dern) is a rich scientist experimenting with head transplantation. His caretaker has a son, Danny (John Bloom), who is an extremely strong full-grown man, but he has the mind of a child.

Meanwhile, Manuel Cass (Albert Cole), a maniacal killer, has murdered Doctor Girard’s caretaker and is badly injured himself. Doctor Girard decides to transplant the murderer’s head onto Danny’s body.


The new creature, with one head of a murderer and the other with the mental capacity of an eight-year old attached to an extremely powerful body, begins wreaking havoc…



“If you insist on making it an either/or proposition, I’d still say stick with The Thing with Two Heads but I’d also say you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not making the time for both of AIP’s two-headed-guy disasterpieces. Besides, I’m pretty sure this is the only time you’ll ever get to see John Bloom acting in his real face.” 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting


” … its monstrous combination of Al Cole’s gap-toothed grinning and devious natured lunatic fixated on the shoulder of and easily taking control over John’ Bloom’s crying, head-shaking idiot is simply unforgettable.” George R. Reis, DVD Drive-in
