BRAIN DAMAGE is one of Frank Henenlotter’s zaniest, most bad taste films – and that’s saying something! Sitting between BASKET CASE and FRANKENHOOKER in Henenlotter’s ouvre, BRAIN DAMAGE really is the ultimate head trip, with talking, brain-hungry parasites, mind-bending special effects and more bad taste gags than you can shake a stick at. Now Arrow Video will release it on Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Dual Format in the U.K. on 8th May 2017 (U.S.A. and Canada 9th May 2017) so you can finally see it in its gory glory.
Meet Elmer. He’s your local, friendly parasite with the ability to induce euphoric hallucinations in his hosts. But these LSD-like trips come with a hefty price tag. When young Brian comes under Elmer’s addictive spell, it’s not long before he finds himself scouring the city streets in search of his parasite’s preferred food source – brains! Featuring late TV horror host John Zacherley as the voice of Elmer, Brain Damage boasts some of the most astonishing bad taste gore-gags ever realized, including the notorious “brain-pulling sequence” and a blow-job that ends with a distinctly unconventional climax.
