Critic Reviews for Creature With the Atom Brain
Creature with the Atom Brain is so very 1950s -- right down Richard Denning as the pipe-smoking egghead scientist who puts together the solution -- that it's a delight.
Audience Reviews for Creature With the Atom Brain
Creature feature sci-fi from the 50's. The creature in this one is actually human (zombie powered by atomic energy). The acting is wretched, the pacing too slow, and the effects barely exist. Very little entertainment value.
A gangster uses an ex-Nazi scientist to re-animate corpses with radiation for revenge and murder. Interestingly, the ex-Nazi is rightly shown as a humanitarian who just wanted to make the world a better place, but is being manipulated by the Irish mobster guy. He also uses the zombies to attack the lead investigator of the killings. Some good stuff, especially the scenes with the protagonist's wife. Also what looks like an early prototype for the cars that created the Google maps.
This one was kinda fun actually! Little girl was creepy! showing her undies all the time. Liked how forehead seams were unnoticed. Liked how parents lied to their child about her uncle. I was waiting for a Shaun of the Dead ending where they kept uncle Dave in the backyard.
