Terror Tuesday: BRAIN DAMAGE (1988)

Watched: 3/1/2011

I usually don’t like ranking films, especially when they come from a (more or less) consistently good director but if backed into a corner I might tell you BRAIN DAMAGE is my favorite Henenlotter film. The film is about a boy named Brian who ends up having a phallic looking drug monster named Aylmer attached to him. Brian gets injected with euphoria-causing drugs and Aylmer gets to use Brian’s body to find the delicious brains he loves to eat. I love everything about this film, it’s filthy, funny, and full of great creature and gore effects. The Aylmer revelation scene in the bathroom is one of my favorite scenes EVER. I was super excited to see this in 35mm but didn’t really realize how much it had been cut when it was released back in ’88. I’m hoping people that were at the Terror Tuesday screening that enj0yed the film track down the Synapse DVD. The film is quite juicy in its uncut form, especially the infamous blowjob scene!
