OriginEdit

In the Japanese B-Movie 'Frankenstein Conquers the World', the heart of Frankenstein's Monster is re-animated by the high levels of radiation coming from the Hiroshima bombing. The immortal heart absorbs the radiation and is mutated by it, taking in large amount of proteins to form a new body. The body continues to grow until a giant new monster exists to terrorize Japan.

In the end it is revealed that the radiation has awoken a Kaijuu known as Baragon, and the resulting battle between Frankenstein's Monster and the beast causes a massive fissure in the earth that they both fall into.

EffectsEdit

This cheap rubber heart was used as a prop in the movie. When exposed to radiation, it can regrown body parts and internal organs. However, when the prop is removed all regrown parts become foam of latex, the kind often used in movies of the time. It's not unfeasible to transplant the heart into a body to keep the re-growths flesh and blood, but the process would likely have unintended consequences.
