The Frozen Dead (1967)

The Frozen Dead is a 1967 British science fiction horror film directed by Herbert J. Leder and starring Dana Andrews, Anna Palk and Philip Gilbert. In this film, a Nazi scientist plans to revive a number of frozen Nazi leaders.

The Frozen Dead, is one of the best post-WW2 explorations of the evil that the Nazis wrought on the world.

In an attempt to resurrect the Third Reich, former Nazi officers have put 1500 of the Nazi elite into cryogenic suspension, commissioning Dr. Norberg [Dana Andrews] to revive them. So far, the experiments have been a failure, leaving the revived demented and debilitated. What Dr. Norberg needs is a living, disembodied brain, to study its inner workings. When his niece Jean [Anna Palk] and her friend Elsa [Kathleen Breck] , Norberg's assistant seizes the opportunity and kills her. Dr Norberg separates Elsa's head from her body and conducts experiments in her ability to control other dismembered body parts. But Elsa has more powers than Dr. Norberg knows, and is plotting her revenge. An excellent exploration of the nature of evil and the will.
