Living severed heads are special because they both display a person’s face and enclose his or her brain. In The Brain That Wouldn’t Die (1959), for example, a surgeon saves the head of his girlfriend Jan out of a car wreck and wants to graft it onto another female body so as to make Jan “complete again.”
