Brain Dead (1990)

The Eunice Corporation is on the ground floor of an exciting growth industry, utilizing a memory re-sculpting technique pioneered by eccentric neurosurgeon Rex Martin (Bill Pullman, Independence Day). It envisions nationwide clinics where anyone can lose the hang-ups of an unhappy childhood, a failed romance or a botched career. At Eunice’s “New You” outlets, a simple operation will give customers peace of mind. Or it might leave them brain dead. But when Martin refuses to cooperate with Eunice, he soon finds himself plunged into a surreal existence that intertwines dreams and reality. Has Martin slipped over the edge into madness? Or have corporate profit-mongers given him a push, making him the guinea pig in his own experiment? To know the answer is to know true terror! Director Adam Simon (Carnosaur) brings together an all-star cast including Bill Paxton (Aliens, Near Dark), Bud Cort (Harold and Maude) and George Kennedy (Cool Hand Luke), with a story by The Twilight Zone writer Charles Beaumont.

The Unborn (1991)

She was desperate to have a child … until she was impregnated with The Unborn. A young wife (Brooke Adams, Invasion of the Body Snatchers) suspects that a mysterious doctor (James Karen, The Return of the Living Dead, Poltergeist) has inseminated her with mutated sperm in an attempt to create a super-human fetus. Unfortunately, there are extreme side-effects. More frightening than Rosemary’s Baby, this chiller features early film roles in the careers of Lisa Kudrow and Kathy Griffin. (Shout! Factory)
