Appropriately titled: Brain Dead

Posted by Cory Casciato On February - 10 - 2009

braindeadApart from the merest whiff of filmmaking competence and a few nice sets of boobies, the horror comedy Brain Dead really has very little to offer. The plot throws two escaped convicts, a couple of hikers, a televangelist and his pretty little assistant together to face some alien parasitic brain eaters. It steals liberally from both Night of the Creeps and Slither (which itself had to have been influenced by Night of the Creeps) but doesn’t do much with what it takes. There’s some completely insane violence (strangely, more from one of the cons than any zombie), a laughable upskirt gross-out effect and, as mentioned, some nice boobs. Unfortunately, all the boob shots come in the first twenty minutes, never to return. That makes the remaining 70+ minutes nearly unbearably dull. The terrible acting doesn’t help things.

  2. […] you want to own the terrible Kevin Tenney film Brain Dead, it’s coming to DVD. Read my review of Brain Dead first, though. […]

  3. This film does have the nicest set of boobs in film (Cristina Tiberia), but not much else. -Mike
