Motion Picture Purgatory: THE BRAIN (1988)

The final year of the tax shelters, 1988 saw the wildest burst of Canadian genre films hit theatres and VHS, an anything-goes last gasp from which all manner of strange and wonderful B-films emerged. For his latest Canuxploitation-exclusive edition of Motion Picture Purgatory, Rick Trembles¬†tackles what may be the weirdest entry of the era, Ed Hunt’s Canuck camp classic¬†THE BRAIN, in which a giant sentient brain eats anyone who’s resistant to his mind-control techniques.

    I HAVE to find this!! Never heard of it! But any film that references Fiend Without a Face is more than OK in my book….and I’m rather found of Ed Hunt’s “Plague”!
