Doctor creates creatures from organs

My dad keeps talking about this movie that he can’t remember the name of. It would be from the 1960’s or 1970’s, he thinks around 73-74.

The main character is a doctor, and it’s almost a puppeteer-style movie. The doctor makes these little creatures, and puts organs of his patients inside the creatures. The little creatures then go and kill people for the doctor.

One specific scene he remembers is where the doctor sews an organ into one of the creatures and sends it up a dumbwaiter. The little creature gets out in an office and is about to stab the person in there, but the person sees and squishes it before it can stab him. The creature’s/organ blood goes everywhere.

 

Can anyone please help?!?

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, almost looks like it’s based on the earlier film. The one I’m trying to I saw in the early to mid-70’s, about the same time Sssss was out. Unfortunately this was on TV, and released in 1989.

      1. Actually this did lead me to the movie, thanks! The IMDB link I found was for a different TV segment. The original move was in fact Asylum, released in 1972: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068230/?ref_=ttpl_pl_tt: A young psychiatrist interviews four inmates in a mental asylum to satisfy a requirement for employment. He hears stories about 1) the revenge of a murdered wife, 2) a tailor who makes a suit with some highly unusual qualities, 3) a woman who questions her sanity when it appears that her brother is conspiring against her, and 4) a man who builds tiny toy robots with lifelike human heads.

  1. Oh, you better believe I’ve registered 😀 Get me on that board!! And thank you Don for getting back to me, I was starting to feel very lonely, lol!!

Got something to say?
