Product Description

What do a pair of escaped convicts, a preacher and his assistant, and a pair of pretty hikers have in common? They're all delicious. After an extraterrestrial parasite crash-lands in a backwoods American town - landing squarely on the head of a local fisherman - it sparks a fast spreading zombie infestation. As the brain hungry monsters multiply, three pairs of unlucky misfits convene on a fishing lodge for shelter. With zombies pounding at the door, the stranded, mismatched travelers must band together to stop the invasion - or serve themselves up as a main course. The problem is, they may lose their minds to each other before losing their brains to the zombies. Full of ingenious gore effects, nudity and witty banter, Brain Dead is just as much a parody of classic zombie films as it is a clever update to the beloved genre.

Kevin S. Tenney's Back In The House! Sept. 12 2011
By Stanley Runk - Published on
Format: DVD
I pretty much swore off of most zombie films a while back as they've pretty much become the Star Trek of the horror genre anymore. Hell, how exciting or fun can zombies be anymore when they're featured in television commercials and every video game that comes out has to include a "zombie mode"?
But as a horror fan there is a certain loyalty to the legends of the genre, and the fact that Kevin Tenney directed this one piqued my interest.
The movie concerns an alien parasite that crashes to Earth and finds a human host, who then gets really ugly and runs about looking to eat human brains to reproduce. A group of various cliched individuals take refuge in a cabin in the woods and have to fight off not only a psychotic escaped criminal, but the ravenous zombie-like creatures.
As you can see, not one shred of originality here, but it's about style. The movie is enjoyable, tongue in cheek, bloody and booby. One rather risque shot shows a closeup of a woman' it spews forth a parasite! That's probably the biggest stroke of originality on display. Personally I'd rather watch a director like Tenney crank out a cheap rehash that be subjected to the Marcus Nispels of the world.
Yes, it's cheap, it has the shot on video look, the makeup is so-so, but it all works. Worth a look....if you like this kind of stuff.

This is just getting released????? Aug. 20 2010
By Justin Mckenna - Published on
Format: DVD
I saw this at the International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival back in 2007. Can't believe it's just not getting a DVD release! Kevin Tenney is a great director who made such '80s classics as-Witchboard and Night of the Demons.
This movie was a fun gore-filled joy-ride. Although looking more low budget then his '80s fare, it still has the free spirit behind it.
Check out a great movie from someone who has experience in the horror genre not in music videos.

Another Fun Movie From Kevin Tenney Nov. 19 2010
By Ben Wasden - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Kevin Tenney, director of the original Night of the Demons and Witchboard, is back with another fun movie. Brain Dead is in the tradition of the 80's horror movies like Night of the Creeps and Return of the Living Dead. It's a zombie movie that is fun from beginning to end.

Brain Dead might not be that scary, but it is very funny, gory, and crams more nudity into its first half hour than most of todays horror films do in their entire running time. And the ensemble cast is great. There's not a bad actor in the bunch. Joshua Benton is especially good as our hero, spitting out funny one-liners just about every time he opens his mouth.

If you like Night of the Demons, The Evil Dead, or any of the aforementioned movies, you have got to check out Brain Dead. It's one of the most fun-filled horror movies of the year!
Here's some brain food to chew on> Jan. 20 2015

I have to admit that I'm growing kind of tired of the glut of DTV zombie comedy films that have been popping up lately, but when I learned that director Kevin S. Tenney (WITCHBOARD - 1986; NIGHT OF THE DEMONS - 1988; PEACEMAKER - 1990) was responsible for this, I just had to give it a view and I'm glad to report that it's pretty good. A small meteor embeds itself into the head of a fly fisherman in some backwoods burg, instantly turning him into a brain-hungry zombie (the first thing he does is stick his thumbs through his buddy's eyes and tear his head in two, a nifty effect that is about as gory as anything you have ever seen). We are then introduced to the usual bunch of oddball characters, including wisecracking Clarence Singer (Joshua Benton), a local man arrested for a traffic offence, who is handcuffed to violent criminal Bob Jules (David Crane), just as Bob blows off a deputy's head with a shotgun (another uber-gory effect) and escapes from custody; the lecherous Reverend Farnsworth (Andy Forrest) and his horny female secretary Amy (Cristina Tiberia); and lost hikers Claudia Bush (Michelle Tomlinson), a lesbian, and big-busted Sherry Morgan (Sarah Grant Brendeke), as they all converge on an abandoned fishing lodge deep in the woods. As you can probably guess, they all soon come under attack by a couple of alien zombies, who spread their infection not by the normal bite, but by expelling a black slimy liquid out of their mouths and onto the heads of their victims. The dumb-as-a-post and ultra-violent Bob holds everyone hostage, even after witnessing one of the zombies putting his fist through the head of nosy female park ranger Sydney (Tess McVicker), which just adds to the difficulty level of survival for everyone involved. It's not long before our unlucky six fish-out-of-water begin getting gorily killed or infected, beginning with Amy and Bob. It turns out that the big-busted Sherry is not a bimbo at all, but rather a brainiac, as she correctly deduces that the black ooze is an alien organism that attaches itself to the brain, slowly eating it's host's brain until it craves more cerebral tissue. When Clarence and Sherry make an important discovery in the lodge's basement, it becomes apparent that the alien organism is very intelligent. Maybe too intelligent for our meager human brains to understand. Though a little too flippant for it's own good (Dale Gelineau's screenplay offers so many witty remarks from Clarence [he acts like a less-educated Dennis Miller], you'll want to punch him in the face to shut him up), BRAIN DEAD delivers so much gore and nudity (there's so much full frontal female nudity in the first twenty minutes, you'll think you died and gone to Nudist Heaven!), you'll forgive some of the cringe-worthy dialogue (although I did have a good laugh at Bob's recollection of having a near-death experience on the electric chair and, ever since that day, he can't keep his hair flat!). Director Kevin S. Tenney makes the most out of special makeup effects master Gabe Bartalos' gory makeup effects, never pulling away from the money shots and really delivering the bloody goods, offering decapitations (too many to keep track of) and other head violence, arms hacked or blown off and one zombie being cut in two with a shotgun. The majority of the effects are refreshingly the practical kind, although CGI is employed on a few scenes (including a long shot of the after-effects of Sydney's head-punching). There are a few standout funny sequences, such as Amy being infected by the alien, but since she's such an airhead, the organism bypasses her brain and hides in her uterus instead (!), so when she comes back to the lodge seemingly unharmed, the black ooze shoots out of her vagina and attaches itself to lesbian Claudia's face (a fitting choice). After tossing Claudia face-first into a roaring fireplace, Clarence turns to Sherry and asks, "What kind of amoeba is that?" to which Sherry replies, "A Trojan amoeba? How the Christ do I know?" Tenney also gives the film a funny framing device and offers an unapologetically downbeat, yet sarcastically fitting, finale. You can do a lot worse than this low-budget horror comedy and, God knows, I certainly have. Also starring Locky Lambert, Chad Martin Guerrero, Greg Lewolt and low-budget auteur Jim Wynorski (CHOPPING MALL - 1986; SORCERESS - 1994) as Sheriff Bodine, who has a severe hard-on for Clarence and his family. Unrated.
Meh Feb. 3 2012

Part of what makes Evil Dead so fantastic is that it was made to be scary -- that it fits into the B-movie mold so well was an accident. Brain Dead feels like it was made to imitate that style, but in trying to create that 80's feel it crammed puns in to every line delivered, stuck a naked breast in wherever they could go, went overboard on cheap gore/music effects, and forced the rubber-suited monster down the audiences throat. It tries so hard to be in the "Cheesy 80's Horror" category (no pun intended), it goes overboard. It almost looks like massive amounts of money were spent on what, in the 80's, was created with corn syrup and food coloring.

If you don't mind the 80's thing being forced into every crevice of a movie and love, love, love that style no matter what, this is for you. If you prefer the made-to-be-scary, accidentally funny, 80's Horror (They Live [free with Amazon Prime], C.H.U.D. [$2.99 to rent, 9.99 to buy on Amazon]), I suggest you skip this one.
