- 1972 | 91mins | USA | 18
Doctors are forced to transplant the head of a dying, racist surgeon (Ray Milland) onto the body of a Black death row inmate (Roosevelt “Rosey” Grier).
A classic slice of blaxploitation cinema from American International Pictures, THE THING WITH TWO HEADS features Welsh screen actor Ray Milland and ex-pro American footballer, Rosey Grier.
Before CGI or complex prosthetics were possible, the film took a more direct approach, sandwiching the two performers together for the majority of their surgically-induced screen time. You won’t believe your eyes but please be warned: this film contains scenes of racial intolerance (even though we know whose side we’re on…) and will screen without subtitles.
THE THING WITH TWO HEADS featured in The Golden Turkey Awards as Winner of “The Worst Two-Headed Transplant Movie Ever Made” Award. But how bad is it…? Join Token Homo and help him decide with our new ‘trash or treasure’ polling cards.
