This film was completed in 1959 under the working title "The Black Door" but was not released until May 3, 1962, when it began screening in theaters under the current title, or sometimes as "The Head That Wouldn't Die."

An egotistical scientist discovers the means to revive dead tissue. Following an accident, he keeps his fiancée's severed head alive in his basement lab while he seeks a suitable body for transplantation. Set free from her physical limitations, she forms a psychic bond with the failed experimental subject he keeps locked in a closet.
