I really like bad movies. In fact, I'd prefer a bad movie over what most consider a "good" movie any day. However, in the case of "Mind Killer", there really aren't any elements to make this a bad movie in a good way. Nope. It just really sucks--in a bad way. Mind Killer, aka The Brain Creatures, concerns a young man who just can't seem to get any pudding from the ladies, whether it be at work, in the local pub, or anywhere else. It seems that his main frustrations involve his life-long dry spell. Seriously, if I had to think of one reason to watch this movie, it would have to be to see how much of a turd a man can become. The lead actor in this movie, Joe McDonald (I think), is total sack. And I have a feeling it isn't his acting skills that portray such sackdom. He's been in one other movie titled "Why I Hate Italians".

Anyway, he really falls for this woman at his job (he's a library clerk). The thing is, she's pretty ugly. No, make that really ugly. But, she is supposed to be hot, so suspend your disbelief. Oh yeah, also suspend your desbelief when our hero finds an ancient book in the basement of the library and learns mind powers. Soon after, he's making candy bars fly out of vending machines! Wow! He also gets the girl he wants, and although she can't help herself, she knows something is up. Eventually, he wigs out and turns into some creature, which is nothing more than a mask that the studio bought from the "expensive" selection at the mask hut in the mall during Halloween season. I think he dies. Normally I wouldn't spoil an ending like that, but there is no way anyone is ever going to read this or actually find this movie. The movie itself looks like a home video a high-school kid made for a project, since the best special effect in the whole film is the candy bar thing I mentioned above. I have this movie on tape somewhere. I taped it on accident many years ago. I guess some day I'll look for it so I can throw it at someone.
