In Brain Dead, experimental techniques of a brain surgeon, played by Bill Pullman (The Serpent and the Rainbow), get a little out of hand before you can say ”cheap low-budget fun,” reality as he knows it is breaking down. This hybrid of Re- Animator and Shock Corridor has a great B cast (Bud Cort is hilarious as a nut case) and a puzzle-box plot that entertainingly refuses to make a damn bit of sense. A good one to rent if you’re in the titular state of mind. C+
