An alien parasite has crashed into Earth with only one thing on its mind: braaaains! With each host it infects, it begins building an army of the undead, and it is up to a group of six unlucky victims to strangers to stop them. As the title implies, BRAIN DEAD is entirely devoid of intelligence, often to the point of becoming unbearable. The 1980's were huge for director Kevin Tenney, who brought us cult-classics like WITCHBOARD and NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, but unfortunately this schlocky B-movie isn't the career booster many of us were hoping for. Forgetting the abysmal cast, the only person really worth mentioning is long-time Henenlotter collaborator Gabe Bartalos, who designed the hilarious and bloody splatter effects. While there is just enough gore, nudity, and stupid humor to get by, BRAIN DEAD should be considered a complete failure on almost every level.
