Hey! There's no atomic Brain.
26 September 1999 | by Kai-18See all my reviews

Even the title has to lie to you. Anyhoo this is another film that somehow surpasses common knowledge. (How you fit a human brain in a cat's noggin.) Ya got a scientist who makes poor excuses for himself, a mindless zombie who serves no purpose, 3 stupid foreigners with incredibly fake accents (as Mike Nelson says: "Give it up you're all from Nebraska"), a dog-man and a creaky 80 year old woman who make snails look like pros on the Nascar circuit. I dub thee fantacrap.
