How do you follow up an all-time cult classic like 1982’s Basket Case? If you’re the one and only Frank Henenlotter (Frankenhooker), you next unleash Brain Damage: his ultimate Grimm’s Fairy Tale for perverted adults. In what the filmmaker himself has dubbed an elegy to his former habits, Brain Damage is a slimy, grimy, gore-soaked slice of NYC neon that follows a poor schmo addicted to a drug called Aylmer. But unlike any street narcotic, Alymer is a parasitic penis monster that eats human brains in order to survive, juicing his host with enough hallucinogens to keep the party rolling. Boasting some of the most astonishing bad-taste gore gags ever realized (including the notorious “brain-pulling” sequence and a sex act with a highly unconventional climax), Brain Damage is hilarious, unsettling and jam-packed with lysergic delights. Uncut digital restoration!
