Bill accidentally destroyed Jan's body, but he preserved his girlfriend's head in a lasagna pan and promised to get her a new body.  Unfortunately, Jan in the pan is a little bitter about the whole "destroyed body" thing.

Haha! My favorite movie of all time!!!! 

Another thing came to mind for me....Jan inna Pan COULD make a living...if she had to. She could rent her gourd out as a cool novelty bowling ball. Or,act in some real depraved fetish videos (nuff sed there!).
No BAD movie fan should miss out on this classick! GREAT REVIEW!!!!   Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup

This is a fun film, I've only seen the MST3K version of it though (which is HILARIOUS, you have to watch that version if you haven't already.)

(talking about the cabin)
Bill's dad: Place gives me the creeps, I should have sold it when your mother died.
Bill: You can't sell that place!
Mike (as Bill): Wait.. mother's dead?!?

One of my favorite MST3K episodes, although it does flag a bit two-thirds of the way through.  Cortner is a bit too leisurely in his search for a host body, isn't he?  Also, Jan's incessant cackling gets old after a while.  What did Cortner think would happen if he succeeded with the transplant?  I doubt that Jan would forgive him, and I figure that some evening he'd suddenly meet the business end of a broken bottle (assuming that she'd lose her super-duper monster-summoning powers once restored to normal.)

Couldn't Cortner, by the way, simply drug Jan's head into insensibility?  Presumably even severed heads respond to barbiturates.

I always  wondered how disembodied heads managed to speak at all. I mean, you've got to have an airstream over the vocal chords. And without lungs... Same goes for non breathing vampires, by the way.

I'd like to see a movie address this problem, perhaps by having an Igor operate a bellows like contraption every time the head wants to say something.

Interesting enough, Whose Line once used a clip from this movie in one of their skits.  Cool and an interesting review as well.

Oh, come now.  You've overlooked the obvious profession for a bitter, rage-fueled disembodied head.  Two words:

Or she could marry the severed head in "Re-animator." Now there is a marriage made in heaven or hell.

A great review of a great film... one of my favorites.  call me a dirty old man, but maybe we have an unfortunate turn of phrase here:
"After trying her on for size (just kissing and petting, not that), Bill is ready to make his move. Unfortunately, an ugly brunette floozy tries to get in on the action. Uh-oh, can't have that. If he is going to kidnap a woman so that he can steal her body, Bill needs to make sure it is a clean snatch. "

I do slip something bawdy in every now and then, and this film was already sleazy - so I just went with it.

She could also make a living as a telemarketer, though that would make the head nothing more than a complete parasite.  Slurping nutrient slurry from a pan is probably bad enough for one's self esteem. BounceGiggle

Couldn't Cortner, by the way, simply drug Jan's head into insensibility?  Presumably even severed heads respond to barbiturates.

Or use a deep dish pan filled up to the rim so that her mouth, but not her nose, was submerged.  Whenever Jan in the pan was made she would be able to blow bubbles, but not much else.

Even today, Dr. cortner's fight with "The Thing In The closet" is scary! Buggedout

I've only seen the MST3K version. It was Mike's first episode as host. This movie was referenced in Re-Animator.

Care less about the movie, give it a c+. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW, where can get a copy of the great soundtrack. Was it Abe Baker or Tony Restaino who wrote and or performed the wonderful surf/jazz cuts?
