THE MAN WITH TWO HEADS

Andy Milligan, USA, 1972, Films Around the World, Horror

“Some of the most lucid passages in Milligan’s career-long bible of discontent . . . this is the life.”
— Lars Nilsen, Austin Film Society

An adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE from the otherverse, THE MAN WITH TWO HEADS is a nihilistic blast of horror dementia from legendary queer filmmaker Andy Milligan. Story-wise, Milligan follows the novel pretty closely. But this is the only Jekyll and Hyde adaptation we’ve ever seen that includes men riding other men like dogs, eyes getting poked out with needles, and a hunchback assistant who plays the piano. With all of the misanthropic ranting, constant bickering, and genuinely tense moments, it’s no wonder that this is one of Milligan’s most revealing and disturbing horror movies.
