New Trailer for Lost '80s Horror Movie HOUSESITTER: THE NIGHT THEY SAVED SIEGFRIED’S BRAIN

Housesitter: The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain
An unfinished horror movie from 1987 is finally seeing the light of day.


Filmed way back in 1987, director Robin Nuyen's horror-comedy Housesitter: The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain sat in the can for 32 years before finally undergoing post-production in 2019 courtesy of Skywalker Sound and Paramount Pictures' colour department.

Influenced by '50s b-movies, Housesitter... tells a madcap story involving a mad scientist stealing college kids' brains for crazy experiments. It's up to an Elvis obsessed medical student to save his campus. The film stars Holly Kaplan, Robert Small and Stephen James Carver.

Housesitter: The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain finally makes its premiere on US VOD and blu-ray October 2nd. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Combining 1980’s horror and 1950’s sci-fi, it is the story of Andy, 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 in 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”. Knowing that Andy is homeless and that college kids can’t resist having big parties, Doc invites Andy to housesit while he goes away on “business”. After he frees his deranged lab assistant from the insane asylum, and with his house now full of healthy unsuspecting college kids, Doc’s trap is set. When the party begins, so does the deadly game of cat and mouse. 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?
