An alien agent from the distant planet Davana is sent to earth via a high-tech matter transporter. There he terrorizes Southern California in an attempt to acquire blood for his dying race, the result of a devastating nuclear war.
Not having seen any of the previous versions of this story, the film this one reminded me more of is Lucio Fulci's (!!) 1990 shocker "Voices from Beyond". The plotlines are different but still share some similarities, as they both involve revenge from beyond the grave, rich families with hidden secrets, a murder investigation carried out on behalf of the murdered man himself, etc. Unfortunately, "The Brain" takes an interesting sci-fi concept and turns it into a forgettable murder mystery; you won't exactly be on the edge of your seat trying to figure out "who-did-it". What's more, the chintzy production makes the movie look as if it were made in the 40s. (**)
