Additional Info

This marvelous send up of grade B horror flicks finds Mrs. Seal, an ancient and wealthy recluse, creepily ensconced in Seal Castle. She has invited three guests who claim to be able to provide her with immortality to compete for a prize of one billion dollars. The vampire and the evangelist are rejected in favor of the mad scientist to end all mad scientists, Dr. Porteous. He has developed a brain switching technique and Mrs. Seal wants the body of her beautiful young ward to house her brain. The switch is made and the fun begins because once Dr. Porteous gets started, it's hard to turn him off. Everyone's brain ends up in someone else's body, which makes this bizarre and delightful comedy a challenge for actors.
