Frank Henenlotter United States, 1988

jessetaylor's rating of the film Brain Damage

So incredibly silly on the surface, but upon closer examination this functions as a great exploitation horror comedy about drug addiction. It's so very 80s in its appearance - as if a blue ballpoint pen was cracked open and leaked all over every scene. It's often stunning even when comically gruesome. A hidden 80s horror gem.
