Arrow Video release bad taste classic BRAIN DAMAGE on limited edition Blu-ray/DVD Dual Format boxset May 8th 2017


Brain Damage


From Director Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker)


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. And this Arrow Video release sees it finally arrive on Blu-ray in all of its gory glory.

From Frank Henenlotter, the man behind such cult horror favourites as Basket Case and Frankenhooker, comes Brain Damage – the ultimate head-trip, now finally on Blu-ray!

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.


So, get on board with us for the ultimate Henenlotter head trip!
