Critic Reviews for Man with the Screaming Brain
The image of Campbell slapping himself to the ground is the only gag that the movie doesn't beat to death.
The film tries very hard to be over the top, wacky and camp, but instead, it's flat as stale O'Doul's.
An unapologetically sloppy jumble of Roger Corman-style antics that could only hope to inspire their own drinking game.
A comedy that doesn't build, lacks structural integrity, and often falls flat. But it's also winningly loopy, with bizarre incidental ideas and performance riffing making for a series of parts that almost make up for the faults of the whole.
Doesn't suffer because it's mostly a bad film, it suffers because it's a bad film without direction or a point...
Audience Reviews for Man with the Screaming Brain
A great time. One outragiously funny and original movie that has the old school 1950's sci-fi style and material. It packs great laughs, mayham and crazyness. Bruce Campbell brings his great nack for comedy as well as a great directional debut, proving he can handle being the star and crafting his own film.
In this Sci Fi original type movie Bruce Campbell loses all of his good Indie cred by doing his same old tired schtick.
Bruce is alright, but the movie needed some help. These made for sci fi movies should be b movies, but they often aren't good enough to even be that.
