I saw this movie in the late 1990s, when I was still foolish enough to believe that no movie made in the 1980s (my favourite decade) could be so bad that I couldnít watch it.  This movie was one of the movies that changed that belief.  It also contributed to the killing of my patriotism for the movie talent pool of my native Canada.  (The evil assistant in that clip is played by George Buza, or as I call him, the Canadian Richard Riehle, and heís a familiar face from countless made-in-Toronto TV shows and movies.  On the other hand, he was awesome as the voice of Beast in the 1992 X-Men cartoon.)

Reading your review almost makes me want to see it again, though.  I have a higher B-movie threshold now than I did five years ago, especially if theyíre horror and can be watched with other B horror movie fans.  If itís ever on Space: The Imagination Station (and, as it qualifies as Canadian content, it seems likely that it will be) I think Iíll tape it and inflict on it my horror-loving friend Gowan.

I think things like this movie are fantastic. Noone would ever know this movie as part of their general pop-culture knowledge. It's info that you can have forever about an extremely obscure canadian film from the 1980s. You never know who else might know this movie.

This movie totally sucks. And that's not an opinion. That's a fact. Cheers

Eh, originally this post was a little more scathing than it needed to be. So I'll just say I don't like it when people tout their opinions as facts, especially so smugly.

I worked on this movie & had to leave after 2 weeks of working with the dumbest Director I had ever met. I don't know how I even lasted 2 weeks? But this guy was an American coming to Canada to do a low budget film that he thought he could add some professionalism to.... But any student right out of school would have done 10x a better job than this thoughtless idiot.
Can I add an example of how stupid he was..... We rented a private home for the outdoor shot...but of course in Toronto it was mid December & the ground was still wet & soft. Nobody was to walk on the property till the owners of the home were having breakfast. Plus nobody walk on the lawn till we secure it with a covering...what does the idiot do at 6:30am..... walks on the front lawn with his posse ruins the whole lawn ad continues walking all over the whole lawn destroying it....That cost the production over $5K to replace the complete lawn in the spring....what an idiot.....Oh he extended the shooting days in the High School (Central Tech) with out paying for the extra days....which stopped any future films from ever getting to film in this classic all American looking High School..... What more needs to be said.....
Oh yes.....he was the first guy I had ever seen wearing his loose pants down below his ass..... The difference from then to now is that.....his pant leg went perfectly cut to the shoe level. Maybe he was ahead of his time back in the mid 80's..... No just an idiot who didn't know how to dress...... The crew was imitating his pants on a daily basis...

The late David Gale pointed out in interviews what an a***ole Ed Hunt was on the set of The Brain.
I do love Ed Hunt's Alien Warrior (1986) though, a true bad movie classic.
