4.0 out of 5 stars Good gory fun, 21 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brain Damage [DVD] (DVD)
Brain Damage, made by the people who did Basketcase. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about the film then nothing will. But I'll have a go anyway.

It's eighties `trash' horror at its best. A small, but very eloquent, blue parasite strikes up a conversation with a young man, then goes about attaching itself to the back of his neck, in order to give him mind-bending, euphoric hallucinations. However, the only drawback is that, in return, the parasite wants to feed of other people's brains.

If you like the sound of that, you're clearly as sick as I am. And the next question you'll probably ask is, how much gore is there? The answer is plenty! Back before computer generated effects ruled Hollywood, people had to make sick puppets out of animatronics. The parasite a well-made and amusing (in a sick kind of way) and gets up to all manner of unspeakably evil acts.

Okay, so no one in this film will ever get an Oscar (although the parasite himself was clearly overlooked in the Best Supporting Actor category), but if you're into eighties horror, then you're not expecting it.

What you get is a well-made gory little number with plenty of tongue-in-cheek horror.

Get the popcorn in, turn the lights down (watch out for the Basketcase cameo), remove brain, give it to a cheeky little worm and enjoy.
