Brain of Blood (also known as The Creature's Revenge, The Oozing Skull, and The Undying Brain) is a 1971 American horror film directed by Al Adamson and starring Grant Williams, Kent Taylor and Reed Hadley. The film was shot in one go and is the only one of Hemisphere Production's films to be filmed in the United States. It was also Hadley's last film appearance before his death in 1972.
Amir, the benevolent ruler of Kalid, is dying, but there is hope in transplanting his brain into another body. Freshly deceased, he is flown to the United States where Dr. Trenton, having unwisely put off body acquisition until the last minute, transplants Amir's brain into the body of the disfigured simpleton assistant who failed in said chore. Dr. Trenton has a few nefarious plot twists of his own in mind, and then there's the thing with the dwarf and the woman chained in the basement. It's up to Amir's friend Bob and wife Tracey to try to salvage this tale.

In 2007, Joel Hodgson created a new comedy riffing project called Cinematic Titanic. Along with other former cast members of Hodgson's former series, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Hodgson riffed Brain of Blood (under the later DVD title The Oozing Skull) as their first film for the new project.
