Dr. Bill Cortner
- There's more to surgery than just being a carpenter to patch up walls or a plumber to drain pipes. Our body's capable of adjusting in ways we've never dreamt of. If we could only find the key!
- Nothing is unbelievable if you have the nerve to operate.
- I'm only a head, and you're whatever you are. Together we're strong. More powerful than any of them.
- Nothing you can be is more terrible than what I am.
- Let me die.
- The alcoholic has his bottle, the dope addict his needle; I had my research.
- The paths of experimentation twist and turn through mountains of miscalculations and often lose themselves in error and darkness!
- You're nothing but a freak of life! And, a freak of death!
- Jan Compton: What's locked behind that door?
- Kurt: A horror... no normal mind can imagine. Something even more terrible than you!
- Jan Compton: No, my deformed friend, like all quantities, horror has it's ultimate, and I am that.
- Jan Compton: And what else has happened to it?
- Kurt: What do you mean, what else? Well, it's... It's mutated some, of course. It's changed considerably
- Alive... without a body... fed by an unspeakable horror from hell!
- It's madness, not science!
