The Man without a Body

Nomination Year: 1996
SYNOPSIS:  Two scientists develop a way to revitalize human heads -- even bringing them back from the dead. They find the head of Nostradamus and use the process on it. It begins giving stock tips to a crazed tycoon. When the insane executive shoots the scientists' friend, they tape Nostradamus' head to the friend's body, creating a really ugly monster which escapes and stumbles through the streets of the city, ultimately killing the murderer and itself.

Stupidest-Looking Monster

You Really Can Do Anything with Duct Tape
They attach a severed head to their decapitated friend's body with what looks like rolls and rolls of masking tape. It wouldn't be quite so idiotic if it weren't, of all things, the head of Nostradamus. Wait a second -- yes, it would.

Worst Science

The Entire Crew Could Use a Brain Transplant
The dying multimillionaire wants to cure his brain tumors by getting a brain transplant. And the scientist who's just developed the process doesn't bat an eye at the suggestion.
