    "In Frankenstein, a mad scientist puts together a man by sewing together dead human parts. One of those parts is a head.

    That example doesn't meet my criteria.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Well, I guess it depends on which head you're talking about.

    Mad science bastards.

    See in relation to head transplants the proper literary references are probably not Frankenstein but Herbert West Reanimator, although the movie rather than the HP Lovecraft story features the transplanted heads in all their glory (or gory).

    There was also a TV movie called Cold Lazerous (spelling) which featured how a frozen head was reanimated in a future to permit people to experience its dreams and memories, it was decadent and degenerate age in which desperation to experience emotions, horror and thrills drove people to do so believing that it wasnt a hell for the head to remember its worst moments (including being raped as a child by a tramp, every romantic fail since the point and alcoholism).

    Some of the stories I've heard about stem cell research is equally creepy too.

    Seems likely.
