Cult Sci-fi The Brain Getting 101 Films Black Label Treatment

We love cult films here at The Peoples Movies and so do 101 Films. In August they will be releasing cult sci-fi horror The Brain (1988), an extra-terrestrial overdose of cerebral terror and media mind control, and a throwback to the sci-fi movies of the ‘50s from director Ed Hunt (Bloody Birthday), available on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK and title 027 on the 101 Films Black Label.

Stacked with extras, including three commentaries and a new interview with composer Paul Zaza, the first 3000 units come with Limited Edition slipcase, and a booklet with new writing on the film.

There’s no official Trailer for this film, we did find this clip, enjoy

Imagine a pulsating mass of grey matter, expanding in size and strength as it takes control of human minds and devours human bodies. It could never happen, right? Just watch Independent Thinking, starring Dr. Anthony Blakely (David Gale, Re-Animator), a hot TV programme. But as the show’s ratings continue to soar, so does the suicide and murder rate among its viewers. What they don’t know is that Dr. Blakely has teamed with an alien brain and plans to gain control of all humanity.
