The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

Dr. Bill takes his girlfriend Jan for a car ride, and she dies when the car crashes. The obsessed doctor manages to salvage Jan's head (but only her head), which he brings back to life in his lab. He then begins his search for a new body for Jan: he plans to kidnap a prostitue, kill her, then transplant Jan's head onto her body. However, Jan has developed ESP in the lab, and seeks revenge against Bill for keeping her alive without her body.
