As the end credits start, we hear the trickster say "Hey wait, it's not over yet" and the credits screen shatters as if it was made of glass. It then shows a scene involving the dog with the dismembered foot from earlier in the film, and then the end credits resume See more »
The UK Guild video was cut by 58 secs with edits to a scene where a man is repeatedly stabbed and his foot severed. The cuts were waived for the Optimum DVD release. See more »
Brain Scan is one of the most unique horror films I have had the pleasure to witness. The fact that characters may be just a little melodramatic doesn't necessarily come down to a bad script but it is in the essence of all horror films. I think this film is hugely under-rated and deserves more praise for a different perspective on the typical killer which it portrays. I think if people watch the film with an open mind they are less likely to be disappointed. I recommend this film to those of you without who can watch films and ignore any preconceptions that you may have.
