A trailer has been released for a long lost genre film from the ‘80s titled Housesitter: The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain. This is the one and only film that was made by actor Robin Nuyen, and it looks like a pretty wild and silly movie. It seems like the kind of fun flick to watch with a group of friends.
The whole thing was filmed in 1987, but it has remained unfinished for 32 years. It was just recently completed thanks to the help of Skywalker Sound for the sound and the final picture from the Paramount Pictures color department. The movie stars Holly Kaplan, Robert Small, and Stephen James Carver.
Combining 1980s horror and 1950s sci-fi, the film tells the story of Andy (Gasparian), “an idealist medical student with a serious Elvis obsession, who is determination to perfect his rat-to-rat brain transfer to ‘help mankind and change the face of modern science.”‘After his final experiment fails and blows up, 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, his future looks bleak. 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 at his makeshift ‘black and white’ laboratory. When Doc realizes that his own brains so severely damaged from experimenting on himself, and that he will be dead in a matter of hours without a successful brain transfer, he hatches a scheme to acquire the thirteen human brains needed for his “brain pyramid”. Will Andy save his friends from the scalpel of a madman, or will Doc succeed in his murderous plot to save his own life by completing the first even human brain transference procedure?“
Housesitter: The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain will finally be released direct-to-VOD and Blu-ray starting on October 2nd.
