Movie Info

Exploitation veteran Joy N. Houck, Jr. directed this confusing Mississippi-lensed science-fiction thriller. Gil Peterson and Barbara Burgess star as doctors working at a secret, government-funded underground laboratory. Paid volunteers are broken down mentally in a sadistic series of experiments which include shock treatment and psychological torture. Cult favorite Stuart Lancaster appears as a scheming senator, and a young Gerald McRaney, Anne Latham, and James Best are among the victims. This film is primarily of interest to cult audiences, as mainstream viewers are likely to find that the minimal production values and makeshift editing undercut any impact which the story might have. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Brain Machine

Slow paced. The plot is confusing and doesn't seem to go anywhere. It could barely hold my interests. The characters suck and the film is overall a stinker.

More like the boredom experiment. The only redeeming qualities of this movie are James Best as the forgetful molester clergyman, the Star Trek color effects, and the line "Get away from me you scientific bitch!"

Low budget 1970's film, poorly made, not wel acted and the plot doesn't have much going for it. Pretty lame.
