Silhouetted against the movie screen is the team of Cinematic Titanic, a five-member peanut gallery dedicated to trashing some of cinema's biggest heaps of junk. Their first venture is dissecting The Oozing Skull, aka _Brain of Blood (1972)_, which features an ogre with a condom hat, a sneaky dwarf, a mad scientist who looks like Tennessee Ernie Ford, gory operation scenes with Sherwin-Williams blood, a tire flap model, and more. Stephen Hawking joins in to add a funny line or two. A trumpet player attempts to perform while vomiting at a disgusting scene. One movie-mocker stops the film and attempts to wipe off some of the dumb blonde's makeup. Another tries to create a theme song, only to fall into a rage. A third escapes the film early in her Brain-of-Blood-Mobile. Cinematic Titanic proves that sometimes a skull can ooze even when there's nothing inside. Written by J. Spurlin

Presenting Cinematic Titanic
2 April 2009 | by (Hell's Kitchen, NYC) – See all my reviews

Mystery Science Theater 3000 was a staple for many. When it went off the air, we searched for an outlet. Out of the darkness & rubble, first arose the Film Crew(now defunct) and RiffTrax. Both these endeavors revolved around Mike, Kevin & Bill, and thus only part of the original crew. The remaining cast, Joel, Trace,Frank & Mary, started Cinematic Titanic. The Oozing Skull is their first release.

In the Muslim country of Khalid (fictional), its benevolent leader/dictator,Reed Hadley as Amir, is dying of cancer. Amir dies and a desperate plot unfolds. His body is wrapped in aluminum foil and taken in a clandestine operation (the population does not know of his death) consisting of his doctor (Nigserian) and Mohammed, out of the country to perform a risky brain transplant. The surgery is being performed by the disgraced Dr. Kent Taylor, who believes there is no chance of failure and has two assistants. One of them is about 3 feet high (Master Blaster did indeed run Barter Town) and the other is a mutilated & traumatized 7 foot giant named Gor. What could possibly go wrong??

Did I forget to mention Amir's deathbed American, blonde-Barbie wife, Tracy or that Dr. Kent has a dungeon with female slave test subjects & delusions of grandeur? How about a brain transplant that didn't take? There is a lot of double-dealing throughout this and people are killed, but I'm not going to lie to you anymore : MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. The ends justify the means. If you can accept that then you will not have to waste 80 minutes. I hope that is warning enough. Don't say I didn't warn you. If you must watch, then don't watch alone and have plenty of medicine standing by.

I prefer the new format, in that all "sketches" occur with the movie in pause, in front of the screen and not as a separate location. Also the inclusion of 5 commentators, instead of the traditional 3, opens up the possibilities for some truly dynamic exchanges. The Oozing Skull is a perfect first choice as it is nearly impossible to watch alone and remain conscious. "It's like Chinese sound effect torture." The crew of the Cinematic Titanic make going down with the ship a pleasant experience, to be repeated with friends.
