Critic Reviews for Brain Dead
Heck, I could sit through a movie a whole lot worse than this one just to see a pair of my favorite actors banter back and forth.
Only the two Bills [Pullman and Paxton] keep this one from flat-lining
Audience Reviews for Brain Dead
A Psycho-analysist begins receiving the same symptoms as a paranoid patient that he "cures", from then on out the movie becomes an intangible mess. For an hour Brain Dead is a never ending cycle of bizzare dreams, with nothing comprehensive coming out of it. Bill Pullman keeps the film alive as the story line attempts to fry your brain, which stops working when the loop becomes repetitive. There are a few creepy images that sticked in my mind a few days after I watched the movie, so there's certainly a few haunting scenes, but as a whole it's like watching a broken record.
Can't explain it, you have to see it. Suffice it to say that Roger Corman's daughter produced the film which is based on Twilight Zone writer Charles Beaumont's script and brought to life by a fascinating cast mix.Truly a hidden gem
Not the gory Peter Jackson film, but a great mindfuck film. Paxton and Pullman together at last with one of the writers from the Twilight Zone and Bud Cort. If this movie was a chick I would marry it (and then divorce it for my real wife...in case she reads this). Awesome!
