Brain Dead is a 1990 horror/psychological thriller starring Bill Pullman, Bill Paxton and George Kennedy and written by Charles Beaumont.


Bill Pullman plays a top neurosurgeon, Dr. Rex Martin, who is active in studying brain malfunctions that cause mental illnesses. High school friend Jim Reston, a successful businessman at Eunice, requires Martin's aid in reading the mind of John Halsey, a former genius mathematician who once worked for the company and is now a paranoid psychotic at a nearby asylum.

Dr. Martin's surgery is intended to successfully alter the patient's mental attitude to unlock the corporate secrets secreted within Halsey's brain. However, as Martin begins to operate he starts to experience unusual heated paranoic dreams which Halsey has been encountering. Martin floats farther and farther from reality, caught between friendship and loyalty in his business
