Storyline

Man with the Screaming Brain is a story of greed, betrayal and revenge in a small Bulgarian town. William Cole, wealthy industrialist, winds up with part of his brain replaced by that of a Russian cab driver Yegor. The two couldn't be more different, but they share one thing - both were killed by the same woman. Brought back to life by a mad scientist, William and Yegor form an unlikely partnership to track down their common nemesis. Written by Jason McFarland

Wonderful, charming, Bruce in full !
10 September 2005 | by shannpalmerSee all my reviews

This is screamingly funny (well, except when Bruce is in the hospital scene, which is a little sad).

Ted Raimi and Stacy Keach are both excellent and worth watching.

Sure, it's not a big budget-suit controlled blockbuster, but it's everything it promises to be and more- and BTW- the women are wonderful in their parts, though I don't know them from other movies, I'd welcome seeing them again.

The two-brain walking scene is inspired and certainly a showcase for Bruce's outstanding physical comedy- he is one yummy guy!

Thanks Bruce, for your brain, this is your baby!
