Update and Brains, Brains, Brains!

So good news! The powers that be over at SHOUT! FACTORY got wind of my recent posts and released their claim on my hosted version of  THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE. Woo hoo!

This is excellent news, and I'll be posting the entire episode here on the blog shortly.

Thank you to Shout Factory for the assistance with this matter!

Speaking of Shout Factory, I mentioned in the first post about this topic that they had released an impressive blu-ray edition of THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE. They did a new HD transfer, cleaned it up, and packed it with extras. Including new footage previously missing. There is also a nude scene alternate cut, not sure if it is on this release or not though. The Shout Factory version includes:
    • NEW High Definition (1080p) Transfer From The Negative Restored To Its Uncut Version
    • Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode - The Brain That Wouldn't Die (Standard Definition)
    • NEW Audio Commentary With Film Historian And Author Steve Haberman And Writer Tony Sasso
    • Alternate Scene From The International Cut
    • Theatrical Trailer
    • Still Gallery
Who would honestly have ever thought this film would get that kind of treatment? THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE on Blu-ray? Gotta love it!!

BTW - For more information than you'd ever want to know about this film check out THE PROJECTION BOOTH podcast Episode 144 THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE. Host Mike White takes an amazingly in-depth look at this film, one of my favorite episodes of that podcast, actually.


  1. Great news! And the "Alternate scene from the international cut" is the nude scene. :-)

  2. That's good to know. I have seen the clip, but with the nudity covered up. There is also extra surgery footage restored in this cut.

  3. Glad to here you got this resolved with Shout Factory and that you spoke out about it. I've been purchasing products from them for many years and would have boycotted them completely if they had not backed down from such a bogus claim.
