Brain Damage (1988) A normal, average guy who lives in New york City becomes dependent on an evil, disembodied brain. The brain feeds the guy a narcotic substance in exchange for his unwilling assistance in obtaining the brains of innocent victims for sustenance. This turns into a tour of circa-1980s underground NyC clubs, backlots, and other seedy locations. One scene features the band Swimming Pool Cues playing the song "Corruption."

Movie Quote(s):
  • Aylmer: Why are the stars always winkin' and blinkin' above?... It's not the season, the reason is plain as the moon... It's just Elmer's Tune!
  • Aylmer: This is the start of your new life Brian, a life full of colors, music,light and euphoria. A life without pain, or hurt or suffering.
Movie Trivia:
  • On the subway, Brian sees a man carrying a big basket with a lock on it. The character is from Frank Henenlotter's previous film, Basket Case (1982).
  • As Brian wakes up for the first time in his bed, his head covered in blood, an album poster is spotted on the wall, Slayer's "Reign In Blood".
  • Horror host Zacherley provided the uncredited voice of Aylmer.
  • The theatrical and original home-video releases of his film deleted the most gruesome scenes, such as the "fellatio" gag.
  • During the fellatio scene the crew walked out of the production refusing to work on the scene. A similar incident happened during the shooting of 'Basket Case'
