The pressure brought upon Martin that threatens to close down his research unless he complies with Retin's wishes causes him to act irrationally. Leaving his research lab with a brain in a jar, he is confronted by a derelict who thinks the brain is his own. A struggle ensues, then a car hits Martin, destroying the brain specimen and sending Martin into a world of unconsciousness where paranoia and schizophrenic episodes are birthed in his mind. A series of wild dreams, confusion and juxtaposition of characters follow. The film ends with Martin's death observed by his wife and "friend" Retin.
The movie is a "no see" for three major reasons. It gets the lowest rating for quality of production or acting. It is evil in content: vivid sexual scenes with nudity; obscene and profane language; and, blood and violence. Most of all, the continuity requires that the viewer be "brain dead" to enjoy it.
Avoid BRAIN DEAD. Instead meditate on: 2 Tim 1:7: "God hath not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind;" and, Isaiah 26:3: "He will keep you in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him."
