The Brain is a Canadian sci-fi horror film from 1988 depicting a giant brain like alien that terrorizes. The film has developed a small cult following.



Dr. Blake runs a TV show called "Independent Thinkers", which is sort of a Scientology-like self-help/religion program. But he's not making his audience think any more independently - with the help of an alien organism he calls The Brain, he's using brainwashing and mind control. The only thing that stands between them and world domination is a brilliant but troubled high school student with a penchant for pranks.



The movie was released on videocassette and laserdisc in 1989 by International Video Entertainment. The movie has never been released on DVD and as of December 30, 2009, Lions Gate has not yet announced any plans to release the movie on DVD.
