Brain Dead is a strange and unusual horror movie. Sometimes it's a bit campy, other times it's seriously artistic, and constantly it keeps you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next. Pullman and Paxton are fabulous.

Surreal in a pretty fun way, but not everyone can be Terry Gilliam. Some good imagery and a Bill v Bill cast, but ultimately it doesn't really add up to much.

A hugely underrated movie that addresses the question of reality, identity, and the self more ably than 12 Monkeys and the Matrix.

About a possible conspiracy and numerous dreams within dreams where Bill Pullman finds himself not knowing who he is, this film does try its hardest to be interesting, but its far more concerned with trying to keep the viewer guessing than being an interesting film about ideas. Without anything substantial to the twists and turns of the film, there is no point in caring about it.

The twists and turns laid out by Twilight Zone contributor Beaumont make this well worth watching. The fact that Pullman and Paxton are together at last will almost force you to see it.

The comedy version of Jacob's Ladder kind of. Or the serious version of The Man with Two Brains. Whatever you want. It's trippy and neat.

Much better than the 17% Rotten tomatoes score would have you believe. It's a bit of a conceptual mess, but it's entertaining enough.

Good entry in the "What is Reality?" subgenre. How nice of them to produce an old script of Charles Beaumont's 23 years after his death

This movie is rather long and looses track of the main topic very often. Although, even if this movie does not reach the characteristics of a "horror" film, it is still quite entertaining and humoristic. Sumatran rat-monkey for the win!

Like a good chunk of other people, I went in looking for the Peter Jackson movie and found one with Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman. I was a little excited to happen upon a sci-fi movie with the two greatest actor Bills of the 90's. Rather than being happy accident, I was pretty disappointed. It really felt like a middle of the road Twilight Zone episode stretched out to feature length. I can't help but feel I would have been happier watching the Jackson movie, flop or not.
