Based on this film's cover art, cult reputation, and the presence of both(!) Bill Pullman and Bill Paxton, I was expecting a gory horror comedy with a pitch-black sense of humor. In truth, "Brain Dead" is more of a fractured psychological tale - the ultimate 'am I dreaming? Am I alive?' kind of movie. It's an intriguing film but there are times when it feels like a soap opera dream sequence that just won't end.
