4.0 out of 5 stars odd, very odd to be sure 11 July 2007
Fans of David Lynch and odd movies will like this movie as I did, I cant even explain the plot as you will need to see this yourself. There is scary moment here but this isnt a horror movie, Bill Pullman works a damn fine performance here as the crazy confused brain scientist trying to work out what is real and what is not or is he just a brain among many brains sitting in jars on the shelf of his lab and this is all a dream? If you like this movie check out Chasing Sleep and Horror in the Attic with Seth Green.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Marvelous Film. 21 May 2014
By the way this is not the brilliant gorefest horror comedy of the same name done by Peter Jackson. It is a very underrated movie that somewhat reminds you of Jacob's Ladder, it was a clever little psychological thriller that was unfairly ignored upon release in 1990, director Adam Simon's Brain Dead offers an enticingly complex foray into the human brain highlighted by a surreal sense of reality distortion. Bill Pullman offers a solid early performance as a brain surgeon who is slowly drawn into a patient's psychosis after picking at the request of a slick corporate administrator (Bill Paxton) who hopes the probing will reveal valuable information, and as the troubled patient, Bud Cort offers a memorably giddy schizophrenic. Pullman says he his insane and Paxton isn't too happy about it because Cort has some top secret information in his head and Paxton doesn't want it to ever get out. Pullman operates on him and the next thing Pullman knows he is in a mental ward and his entire reality starts to mess with him and he can't tell what is real and what is not. The doctor finds himself drawn ever deeper into a puzzling world in which reality and fantasy clash in a seemingly unending cycle of psychotic confusion. Sporting a deliciously warped sense of humor that perfectly compliments the film's nightmarish tone, the film may not be entirely gratifying to impatient viewers but for those willing to watch the film and give it a chance, will find a great mind bending experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Movie 12 Mar 2013
If you are a fan of Lynch, purchase this DVD. It is that simple; hell, I only paid 1.27 inc. P&P so what do you have to lose? It's macabre, mind-blowing, mixed up fun that is worthy of being in any collectors DVD collection.
