It was announced earlier this year that Scream Factory would be releasing the 1988 film The Brain on Blu-ray, and the release has been fully detailed today.
The release is packed with extensive new bonus features, including new audio commentaries with director Ed Hunt (Halloween Hell), composer Paul Zaza and actor Tom Bresnahan (The Kingdom), and interviews with actress Cynthia Preston (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), actor George Buza (X-Men), assistant art director Michael Borthwick, and more.
"Imagine a pulsating mass of grey matter, exploding in size in size and strength as takes control of human minds and devours human bodies. It could never happen, right? Just watch Independent Thinking, starring Dr. Anthony Blakely (Gale), a hot new TV program. But as the show’s ratings continue to soar, so does the suicide and murder rate among its viewers. What they don’t know is that Dr. Blake has teamed with an alien brain and plans to gain control of all humanity."
