Plus the cover is reversible! I'll be covering this until it's release. I was lucky enough to be sitting next to Barbra Crampton and Stuart Gorden in a theater a few years back. I still remember her saying that she did not remember so much nudity.

Ludwig, obsessed with the idea of restoring the monster to full power, is unaware that his various associates all have different ideas about whose brain is to be transplanted into the monster's skull.

Watch for this odd little mistake:
The first time we see the close-up for the wall plaque for "Dr. Frankenstein - Diseases of the Mind" outside his "mansion", it is hardly in such a place. If you look close to the left of the sign you'll see a ladder, wires on the ground, palm trees and a station wagon type of car.

“Rich’s condition is improving and his family has asked for privacy at this time,” said a press release from Weigel Broadcasting Co., which airs Koz’s show locally on WCIU-TV and nationally on Me-TV network.

Koz is a Chicago native and graduate of Maine East High School and Northwestern University.

Friends and fans of Svengoolie are being directed to send cards, if they wish to do so, to Rich Koz care of WCIU The U, 26 North Halsted, Chicago, IL 60661.

Koz previously suffered a heart attack in 2002, according to Time Out.

Here is to a speedy recovery!!
