Brain Dead Review

"A brilliant puzzle-film with a chillingly good story that offers the same kind of pleasure as THE SIXTH SENSE, which it predated. Riveting intense performances by Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton pull you into a harrowing and haunting world."—Roger Corman ~~The Eunice Corporation is on the ground floor of an exciting growth industry, utilizing a memory resculpting technique bioneered by eccentric neurosurgeon Rex Martin. It envisions nationwide clinics where anyone can lose their hang-ups of an unhappy childhood, a failed romance, or a botched career. At Eunice’s "New You" outlets, a simple operation will give customers peace of mind. Or it might leave them brain dead. But when Martin refuses to cooperate, he soon finds himself plunged into a surreal existence that intertwines dreams and reality. Has Martin slipped over the edge into madness? Or have corporate profit mongers given him a push, making him the guinea pig in his own experiment? To know the answer is to know the terror!~
