Title: The Brain
Post by: on February 10, 1999, 09:01:11 PM
The brain is the cutest monster I've ever seen.  I wanted one for a pet.  This movie is worthless, but Vivian did have some nice boobs.

Haha this movie was jam-packed with errors.  Right from the beginning I spotted what appeared to be a mouse pointer during the credits screen after listing the composer's name.  Overall, I'd say this video isn't too bad.  And yes, Vivian's boobs were pretty damn appealing!

Just like you said Andrew. Fairly amusing, but overall not the greatest. The Brain does look pretty damn funny though!

Hey, this movie is pretty cool, if you ask me!  Of all the films I worked on, it's the only one where I actually got a screen credit! *LOL* By the way, I still have a Brain in my closet...I get it out on Halloween to freak out all of the neighborhood kids (and my wife, who to this day won't watch this tape all the way through *snif*)

I have seen this movie a couple of times and I was fairly impressed.  The thing that probably impressed me the most is the fact that the film was shot, for the most part, where I live in Mississauga, ON.  The first b-horror movie that I know of to be shot here!!!

Good movie all around.  To bad willie couldn't have died three or four more times.  He just screamed "KILL ME".  I like the flavor of this movie. It is the classic story line: mind controlling giant brain uses television to take over the world.  3 green globs.

First movie I ever saw that warned against abusing the chemical sodium (check the credits at the end).

I saw this movie and it stinks pretty like when you eat too much mexican food. I think they  should have a zombie to kill the Brain because zombies likes brains. And I hate when they kill the women save them and kill the stupid men.

This was a pretty good B movie. I bought it off Ebay, just for a good laugh. I really enjoyed it, very chessy - & I like that.

You have a dirty mind!

What about the random fat white guy chasing the lead character?  Chasing the truck, stopping, catching his breath, and then shooting.  Up four flights, down two, up 4 more, all in a 2 story building... hehe..  Such a smart brain could have picked someone more in shape...  Stu.. Stud.. Studi.. STEAK!!!

This movie is funny as hell and yes, the brain was really cute! The host guy was kind of creepy in his own way I guess. I think everyone should see it once to laugh at it and be amused.

What would a gallon of pure sodium Do to a BRAIN?

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.
