Image result for man with the screaming brainBruce Campbell plays William Cole, the wealthy CEO of a U.S. drug company who travels to Bulgaria with his wife, Jackie (Antoinette Byron) in the hopes of diversifying his company’s financial interests. Cole is a stereotypical ugly American who constantly complains about the lack of Americanization of the former communist country. They’re driven to a hotel by a taxi driver, and former KGB agent, named Yegor Stragov (Vladimir Kolev), in which Yegor gives William a ring to give to Jackie. While William is at the construction of a subway, Jackie secretly cheats on William with Yegor.

William gets back to the hotel and bumps into the hotel maid and gypsy, Tatoya (Tamara Gorski), who kills men that date and dump her. Jackie then comes in, catches William kissing Tatoya and dumps him. William chases Tatoya, who had taken William’s money and ring (which is revealed to be Tatoya’s that she gave to Yegor when they dated), and Tatoya knocks him in the head with a pipe outside the hotel. Yegor witnesses this and so Tatoya kills Yegor with his own gun.
A vengeful Jackie has Cole’s life support plug pulled in hospital, and then goes to Gypsy Town where Tatoya lives and attempts to kill her, only to have Tatoya kill her by throwing her down a flight of stairs. Meanwhile, William wakes up in the warehouse of a Russian scientist named Dr. Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov (Stacy Keach), and his idiotic assistant Pavel (Ted Raimi), who had taken damaged parts of William’s brain and replaced it with healthy tissue from Yegor’s. When William runs out of the warehouse, he discovers he can hear Yegor’s voice in his head, and they both plan to “get the woman that killed us both”. Jackie, who had also been picked up by Dr. Ivanov and Pavel, has her brain put inside a robot, and so she escapes and also plans to exact revenge on Tatoya.
William/Yegor and Robo-Jackie chase Tatoya around town. William gets involved in a car crash with his foot underneath a car and Tatoya makes another attempt to kill William by setting the leaking car gasoline alight. Jackie saves him and is presumed dead in the explosion. After avoiding some bar punks that believe William “raped Tatoya on her wedding day”, William/Yegor begin suffering brain damage due to their cells not able to coexist in the same head. Jackie, who had survived the explosion, appears and attempts to kill Tatoya by throwing her off a bridge, until Jackie stabs her brain, causing her to malfunction, and has Jackie thrown off the bridge. William chases Tatoya through the subway construction and the sewer and finally kills Tatoya by dropping her in sewer river, after obtaining the ring back. William and Jackie then confess their love for each other before Jackie’s batteries finally die, as does William due to the brain cells of him and Yegor. Pavel brings William, Jackie and Tatoya’s body back to Dr. Ivanov to fix them, as he had earlier found a way to make William and Yegor’s brain cells coexist in the same head. The movie ends with William back in the U.S. six months later, still sharing his body with Yegor’s brain. He goes to a brain trauma benefit with Jackie, whose brain had been transferred into Tatoya’s body.
