Filmed entirely in 1987, Housesitter…The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain sat unfinished for thirty years. Now, with post sound from Skywalker Sound and the final picture from the Paramount Pictures color department, it is at last completed. Combining the 1980’s horror and 1950’s sci-fi, it is the story of Andy, an idealist medical student with a serious Elvis obsession, and a determination to perfect his rat-to-rat brain transfer to “help mankind and change the face of modern science”. After his final experiment blows up and fails, Andy loses his chance to travel abroad and study at the prestigious Reinhardt Institute. With his future in doubt, and with no place to live, he heads to the bar feeling dejected and lost. Little does Andy know that his beloved professor and mentor, Doc Crosby, is actually a mad scientist who has been murdering people and stealing their brains for experiments in his makeshift “black and white” laboratory.
