Product Details


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 Amazon.com
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's...anatomy...as 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 Amazon.com
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 Amazon.com
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!

I started to watch this movie twice and each time I couldn't allow myself to continue. Bad acting, horrible script and nothing worth watching
Amusing, Entertaining May 19 2013
By Richard Crandon - Published on Amazon.com
Decent film, if zombies are your thing. It had a moment or two of humorous interaction but not my first choice on a Saturday night.
