Audience Reviews for The Brain Eaters


One man's camp is another man's crap. An uber-low budget sci-fi thriller about low tech "insects" (hairballs with protruding pipe cleaners) who emerge from a mysterious metallic cone to turn unsuspecting humans into mindless slaves. Sort of a Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Trouble with Tribbles.
