Reviews:

“If you insist on making it an either/or proposition, I’d still say stick with The Thing with Two Heads but I’d also say you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not making the time for both of AIP’s two-headed-guy disasterpieces. Besides, I’m pretty sure this is the only time you’ll ever get to see John Bloom acting in his real face.” 1000 Misspent Hours and Counting

” … its monstrous combination of Al Cole’s gap-toothed grinning and devious natured lunatic fixated on the shoulder of and easily taking control over John’ Bloom’s crying, head-shaking idiot is simply unforgettable.” George R. Reis, DVD Drive-in
