I love a movie with an interesting story. This has a real story behind it, we almost want to believe it to be reality. Brainwaves is a tight, solid psychological thriller that some medics out there would get a kick out of with their analogies. A young girl is murdered in a bath, while listening to music, ear plugs on, again proving that water and electricity don't mix. Of course she didn't hear the intruder. As he picks up her radio placed behind her, while standing above her, he raises the radio above his head, although he's faceless to us. Then in slow effective motion we see the radio drop, following by her electrocution. Full on too. Later a young mother walking across a steep San Francis street, gets one of her heals caught on the railway track in one of those grooves. And a slow moving train is coming right towards her. Barely evading a flattening, inturn she's knocked up on the hood of this car, her skull knocking up against the windscreen, spider webbing the glass. She goes into a coma, but there is one way she can by pulled out of it. A thing involving the clavious process, where one can use electronic devices to transfer impulses from one brain to another. This becomes an experimental success. Unfortunately for that girl's killer, this isn't good as the mother is giving the dead girl's brain. How cool is this story. Now she starts acting strange, seeing images that the dead girl saw, like the killer wrist tattoo, while in the gym, where eventually the killer's identity becomes full circle too her. If you enjoy these psychological thrillers, this is something different in the thriller department. It's backed by a cast of great actors, including the late Tony Curtis as the respected genius doctor of the hospital, a kind of dark and a little enigmatic, this fine actor plays so well. This is a story that leaves you wondering if this really could possible. Who knows in today's times. A thoroughly engrossing thriller, one of those little movie surprises.
