Man With The Screaming Brain
Man With The Screaming Brain is a film that came out last year and stars, "B-movie megastar Bruce Campbell of Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, and Bubba Ho-Tep fame". Now I have not seen this movie, but at work on Tuesday, I met the co-writer of this film, David "Goody" Goodman. Goody is a great, totally unpretentious guy, he explained to me how he wrote and produced the film with Bruce and was proud of it as a B-horror flick. Then he said Dark Horse comics puts out a comic of the movie that was a "Dirctor's Cut" version of how he and Bruce envisioned the film if they hadn't been on such a shoe string budget. [**geek moment**, Then he called Bruce on his cell to tell him that I had found out about the Evil Dead remake online, from my pal Jimsmash and that it was on imdb... Bruce already knew] Anyway, click here to see pages of the book and here to read about how the comic book got it's start and how they got the Hellboy creator involved.
Man with the Screaming Brain tells the story of a wealthy American businessman determined to exploit the crippled economy of a former Soviet state torn between communist roots and capitalist greed. But Campbell's character soon finds himself in the grip of a mad scientist with a twisted brain-transplant scheme worthy of Dr. Frankenstein.
So if you get a chance rent this one, I know I'm throwing it in my Netflix... There are some interesting and honest reviews on the imdb link.
