Brain Damage, 1988.

Directed by Frank Henenlotter.

Starring Rick Hearst, Gordon MacDonald, Jennifer Lowry, Kevin Van Hentenryck, Lucille Saint-Peter, Theo Barnes, and John Zacherle.


A young man unwittingly enters into a bargain with a parasite that feeds on human brains to provide victims in exchange for having his own brain injected with an addictive blue liquid.

Despite having only a handful of directorial credits for ‘proper’ films Frank Henenlotter has certainly made his mark on the horror/exploitation genre, laying out his stall with 1982’s brilliantly grotesque Basket Case and not looking back as he managed to pile more and more obscenities into each successive movie. Brain Damage was his follow-up to Basket Case and arrived six years after that excursion through the seedy underbelly of New York, and thankfully Henenlotter managed to keep things just as grimy and dirty in this movie, although there is a marked improvement over »
