Format: DVD
Two brains with dissimilar attitudes arrive on Earth. One is criminal (Gor) and takes on Steve March's body. The police brain (Val) takes on the body of an actor that is a real dog. They don't ware black and white but you know the bad guy when he has a tendency to destroy things. Don't look too close or you will see the wire holding the brains up.
After/if you recover from this great John Agar movie. Next you need to watch Tarantula

What makes up for the wobbly props on strings and the wooden acting is the glazed, crazed expression of the lead character once his cranium becomes occupied by the eponymous brain.

Hokey fun 31 Jan. 2003
By Loring Ivanick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
When I was a kid, John Agar's glazed over radioactive eyes and the floating transparent brain of the film's title really gave me the willies, I tell ya. This is still a wonderful silly movie that benefits from being short, with the monster introduced early on. Agar is good, contorting himself in pain pretty convincingly as the monster enters and leaves his body, and he's got the megalomanical laugh down pat. The special effects are primitive, especially when the alien monster is forced to assume his real shape and reveals himself to be a rubber blob bouncing around on a wire, but heck, you were expecting Industrial Light and Magic, maybe? Everything is low budget: small cast, stock footage, a nuclear research lab with no equipment, and a set that consists of the desert and someone's suburban home. And what other film mentions the "fissure of Rolando"? The extras on the DVD are virtually non-existent, consisting only of chapter search and the theatrical trailer. Biographical info of the performers, especially the supporting cast, would have been welcome. If you like sci fi B-movies, this certainly fits the bill perfectly. The transfer to DVD is excellent.

A classic B movie 26 Feb. 2002
By M. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Gor and Val are alien brains that come to earth. Gor wants to enslave the human race and takes over John Agar's body. Val wants to capture Gor and return him to planet Arous from which he escaped. Val inhabits a dog to be close to Gor. Gor blows up an atomic test site, crisps a couple of people, and destroys a couple of airplanes (the pieces of which hang from their wires afterwards) before his comeuppance. And, of course, Gor has to lust after the female lead. The acting is generally fine and the film exhibits a level of professionalism lacking in a lot of these "classics".
This is great B movie fare. And as an extra bonus, the ravine and cave in which Gor and Val are discovered was earlier occupied by that ultimate of alien pests, Ro-man: the alien in a gorilla suit and diver's helmet which appears in Robot Monster, another classic of 1950s sci-fi.
The DVD is of good quality. Details are visible in the shadows and the scenes have good tone throughout. The picture is sharp. A very good transfer to DVD.
This is an enjoyable, if silly, film. A good example of the alien invader paranoia of the 1950s.

Ludicrous, hugely entertaining B-flick; crisp, clean DVD 15 Dec. 2001
By Surfink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
From the producer (Jacques `Jack' Marquette) and director (Nathan Juran) of Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Brain from Planet Arous (like 50 Foot Woman) has to be one of the top five or ten most entertaining bad films of all time. Apparently Juran was so ashamed of these two movies that he took the pseudonym `Nathan Hertz' as his screen credit. Unlike say, Dick Cunha, Coleman Francis, or Ed Wood's movies, it's not technical incompetence or lack of funds that create the magic here (although those were no doubt factors), but the completely loony, ludicrous script by Ray Buffum (Teenage Monster, Island of Lost Women). John Agar delivers a deadpan, tour de force performance (perhaps matched only by Jack Nicholson in The Shining) as Steve, the alien-possessed hero: relaxed and easygoing one minute, smug and sarcastic, leering lustfully, writhing in agony, or laughing maniacally the next. Joyce Meadows actually emotes quite convincingly as his frightened, confused fiance Sally, and familiar faces Robert (Wagon Train, Laramie) Fuller, and beaky Thomas B. Henry (Beginning of the End, How to Make a Monster, etc.) fill out the `name' cast. The only evidence of legendary makeup artist Jack Pierce's participation are Agar's silver eyeballs (re-used by Pierce five years later in Creation of the Humanoids). The lecherous (!?) brain itself is a wonderfully silly only-in-the-50s creation, while Agar, laughing psychotically, telepathically destroying chintzy model airplanes, and his climactic showdown with evil alien brain Gor are cheese-lover's delights. The sweat stains, Agar's distorted face in the water cooler, the no-fx alien craft (seen landing behind the opening credits, watch closely), 'good' brain Vol inhabiting Agar's dog, the highly visible wires suspending Gor in the hysterical climax; there are just too many bizarrely precious moments to catalog in a short review like this. If you're a bad film lover this is a must-have.
Image's DVD package is typical of other releases in their Wade Williams Collection. Minimal extras consist of a mediocre-quality `Brain' trailer, 16 chapter stops, nicely designed menus, and five bonus trailers `hidden' in a cookie. The DVD box boasts a "pristine" transfer from original source materials. While there is some very light, sporadic speckling and scratching and a few seconds of damaged frames, the print does look terrific otherwise. Very bright and sharp, with excellent grayscale, contrast, and detail. It's probably never gonna get any better than this. Aficionados of le films bad, go for it.

One of my top 10 in 50's or 60's monster movies 13 April 2013
By Herb Salisbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is in the top 10 and probably top 5 of all my 50-60's monster movie category. John Agar shines in this one. His cockiness while being controlled by the alien brain is well acted . His silver eyes become very noticeable when the brain is doing destructive things while residing in him. Oh how the brain finds his girl Sally very desirable. A new sensation never known on the planet Arous of of course. How can brains do the boom boom anyway? Power and more power. To rule the universe is all Gore wants along with revenge to his planet. Poor Mr. Agar is just a poor pawn who wishes he was not a victim of these maniacal brain. He generates his power through Steve's (Agar) eyes. He blows up planes out of the air. He makes atomic explosions but then runs out of oxygen so he has to leave the body for a while and Steve can then be a normal good guy for a while. A good brain comes to save the day. But he must take another body to watch the Gore the bad brain in incognito. I won't give away the plot or ending, but it is truly a great movie on a Saturday night. It is like going to the movie as a kid again or watching on late night tv when you were allowed to stay up. This is 5 star material. I watch a lot of these movies with a friend via telephone and dvd sync. Great fun to watch this movie with someone who loves this 50's stuff as well. If the wife won't watch them with you, call someone who does and sync up. Be a kid again and watch a 5 star 50's monster movie and make fun of scenes together.

A NO-BRAINER!!! 22 Jun. 2008
By Richard J. Oravitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It doesn't get any better than this! Camp cult favorite John Agar stars in his best 50's sci-fi role ever, that of Gor-possessed Steve March! He's nice and bland and bad and dangerously over-the-top all in the same movie. He blows up planes and test sites laughing insanely to the delight of every hardcore fan of campy schlock!
Produced by cinematographer Jacques Marquette this film has much in common with his ATTACK OF THE 50FT. WOMAN, produced the same year and no doubt shot back to back. Both feature the same locations, even the same shot of the car in the opening of 50FT. appears in BRAIN when Sally (Joyce Meadows) and her father drive into the desert to investigate where Steve and Dan(Robert Fuller) disappeared for a week. Both films were directed by Nathan Juran (as Hertz). And both films even feature some rather risky kissing, lurid and sexy!
John Agar, my favorite 1950's sci-fi/horror actor (my God, he was in almost everything!)is perfect as the alien controlled victim, finally getting to play opposite his straight-arrow image in so many of these films (TRANTULA, MOLE PEOPLE, ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE,etc.), and he really appears to be enjoying it as well!
A classic of it's kind THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS has to be seen to be appreciated...or at least believed.
Once Gor is defeated and killed and Steve March reverts back to his good ol' self, he certainly has a lot of explaining to do to the Army brass who saw him destroy planes and kill people at random...." I really didn't do it, you see I was taken over by this floating alien brain from the planet Arous and he made me kill all those people!!!"
...Great stuff.
