Trail of the Screaming Forehead (Director's Cut) [DVD]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Terror strikes the sleepy suburb of Longhead Bay when creeping alien foreheads begin attaching themselves to local townspeople and seizing their very souls - launching a vast invasion from Outer Space!
By a remarkable coincidence, sexy, arrogant scientist Sheila Bexter begins testing her theory that the forehead - not the brain - is the seat of all human knowledge. She formulates a human extract and convinces gullible colleague Dr. Phillip Latham that with enough Foreheadazine he can become the most brilliant scientist in the world! Catastrophe reigns when the ill-fated experiment goes horribly, horribly wrong while the entire town is being taken over by sinister brow-like nightmares in a terrifying cataclysm of Corpses and Chaos!
Once again, Larry Blamire and his fabulous stock company of actors have brought forth a loving, spot-on parody of a classic American genre, presented in blazing colour and the miracle of CraniaScope, and featuring genuine stop-motion animation plus cameos by some beloved sci-fi icons. You don't need to be the smartest man in town to know this is a must-have!

Larry Blamire is the mad genius of z-feature pastiche ... his lovingly-crafted films are beyond dreadful by intention, and yet consistently fresh, entertaining and astonishing --Kim Newman

mind of Larry Blamire, and it's subject matter is the most eccentric
yet. Basically it apes the B movies from the 1950's yet again, with the
Blamire twist of more than one strand of plot happening at the same
time. So this time we see a female scientist tampering with nature -
she's trying to prove that human intelligence is housed in the forehead
not the brain, while at the same time, as fate would have it, alien
foreheads from another galaxy are invading and taking over the minds
and bodies of unsuspecting humans!
The familiar cast from previous movies all return again, and not only
that, they come back in this movie (See what I did there?). By now
you'll have your favourites, for me it's Alison Martin, who is
absolutely hysterical once again this time as the loopy librarian, and
Jennifer Blaire, who again looks amazing, plus she's a very good
actress and singer so I am surprised she's not seen more often. But all
of the cast are great and play everything to perfection.
If anything lets the film down it's the plot, which hinges on anything
associated with the forehead, so unless you find this concept funny in
it's purest abstract form, you might find parts of the film
bewildering. I mean, there's only so much laughter that can be
extracted from the subject of foreheads! But they make a very brave
attempt.Read more ›
At the start it looked promising. The theme song, a tune almost identical to "Where The Boys Are" and sung by The Manhattan Transfer, put a smile on my face. The garish technicolour and the cinemascope aspect ratio reminded me of original 1950s sci-fi and for once the picture didn't look like it was filmed on a video camera (as was the problem with "Lost Skeleton Of Cadavra" and "Dark & Stormy Night"). It was even funny for a little while but then it became increasingly annoying.. like a small boy with a bugle. Cute at first but then you just want to claw your face off.
If you liked "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" and "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" then you might find a modicum of joy here. As for my copy, I'd feel guilty about giving it away to the charity shop so I will keep the only useful thing about it, the plastic casing, and throw the dvd into the garbage bin where it belongs. I could use it as a beer coaster but just the sight of the disc would remind me of what a pathetic waste of money buying this rubbish turned out to be. But hey, even a festering pile of cow poop is heaven to a dung beetle... so if this kind of tedious trash turns you on, be my guest. All I can say is, Dick Miller must have needed the money...Read more ›

The best fun/horror movie I have ever seen. The characters are all "caricatures" and the dialogue is so full of cheese that it is brilliant as well as being edible!Published on 23 July 2013 by Polly
This film epitomizes the things that I love about B movies. The bad dialogue, the bad editing and the all too obviously bad acting. Read morePublished on 15 April 2012 by den
