BRAIN DAMAGE - from the director of "Basket Case" & "Frankenhooker", a 35th Anniversary screening

Aug 3
Sat 10:30pm only!

Dir. Frank Henenlotter - 1989 - 86m - ALL SEATS $10

From New Mexico's only convention dedicated to horror, rock, and all that is macabre - MORGUE & KRYPT ALBUQUERQUE - comes this late night NYC 80s psychotronic blast! 


After altering the landscape of trash-horror history with BASKET CASE and FRANKENHOOKER, the brilliant Frank Henenlotter unleashed BRAIN DAMAGE, his ultimate Grimm’s Fairy Tale for perverted adults. This is a slimy, grimy, gore-soaked slice-of-NYC-life that follows a poor schmo who is addicted to a drug called Aylmer. But unlike heroin or cocaine, Aylmer is a mutant penis monster who needs to eat human brains in order survive. Hooray!  BRAIN DAMAGE is hilarious, unsettling, and jam-packed with bad taste gags that would probably cause John Waters to reassess his life’s work!  Do not miss!  (special thanks to the wonderful AMERICAN GENRE FILM ARCHIVES!) 


“Belongs to a tradition of ‘80s-era NYC-centric horror that suggests the cinematic equivalent of graffiti, and has a foot rooted in the outrage voiced by British punk." -  Chuck Bowen, SLANT


"The amusing stop-motion creature animation and practical gore effects imbue Brain Damage with an icky quaintness that makes it a compelling midnight movie." -
