This week MikeD selected another classic of Canadian terror, filmed in a Mississauga office park. Who can brainwash better than a brain? Nobody. But so many other questions are raised. What is the brain’s goal? How can it float around on a spinal column? What is the professor’s goal? Will he be decapitated like he was in Re-Animator? Who, if anyone, is an alien? Were the filmmakers paid off by the sodium industry? How does everyone know to meet in the boiler room and be chased? At what point does a young man go from Dennis the Menace to Dennis the Active Threat?
