CULT FACTION

For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Preview- Brain Damage (Bluray)

From Frank Henenlotter, the man behind such cult horror favourites as Basket Case and Frankenhooker, comes Brain Damage – the ultimate head-trip, now finally on Blu-ray!

Meet Aylmer. He’s your friendly neighbourhood parasite with the ability to induce euphoric hallucinations in his hosts. But these LSD-like trips come with a hefty price tag: when young Brian comes under Aylmer’s addictive spell, it’s not long before he finds himself scouring the city streets in search of his parasite friend’s preferred food source – brains!

Featuring late TV horror host John Zacherle as the voice of Aylmer, Brain Damage boasts some of the most astonishingly bad taste gore gags ever realized, including the notorious “brain-pulling sequence” and a blow-job that ends with a distinctly unconventional climax.
