The Brain is a 1962 science fiction thriller film directed by Freddie Francis, and starring Anne Heywood and Peter van Eyck.[1] A UK-West German production (also released as "Ein Toter sucht seinen Mörder")

The Brain differs from earlier film versions of the Curt Siodmak novel Donovan's Brain: in this remake, the dead man seeks his own murderer through contact with the doctor keeping his brain alive.[2]
