A movie like Brainscan is unique. The characters in this film only exist in the time that the movie was made. Brainscan can almost be called a period film today due to its embracing the troubled youth subculture of the early nineties. Ed Furlong of Terminator 2 is a high school student that exposes himself to large amounts of Horror, Hard Rock, and Video Games. When his obsessions become his vices, he experiences the fear of losing control of the only thing he truly possesses; himself. A sinister antagonist called The Trickster drives the plot of the movie and forces the main character <more>
Furlong to become either a hero or a victim. The movie is well paced and has an entertaining score/soundtrack. This film should be highly recommended to fans of Horror, Sci-Fi/Fantasy and admirers of Frank Langella and/or Edward Furlong.
Brainscan is now a *must* as far as "Cult Classics" go (by kraft_cheese_products)
Brainscan is by far one of the most personally influential pieces I can recall from the Horror genre. I look back on this movie as what can be misinterpreted through the creative process, sheer possibility and the like. This movie took a very creative stance behind the usual blandness of a typical horror story and made what could be interpreted as a piece ahead of its time. In 1994, the internet was not what it once was, and peoples understanding of it was dim in a mass perspective.. so a lot of this film went misunderstood or unappreciated at the time it was released. Only now, through home <more>
video distribution and release can people take shots at it, but are they really justified? This is a generally stated low-budget film Edward Furlong did it obviously because he had some sort of passion for the genre and it was done with a certain degree of emotional intricacy. Look at the larger scope, don't feel embarrassed to admire what could have been, in itself a Horror-genre redfining era that just didn't click with mainstream "pop" perspective...
a unique and enthralling account! (by King Chris-2)
Brain Scan is one of the most unique horror films I have had the pleasure to witness. The fact that characters may be just a little melodramatic doesn't necessarily come down to a bad script but it is in the essence of all horror films. I think this film is hugely under-rated and deserves more praise for a different perspective on the typical killer which it portrays. I think if people watch the film with an open mind they are less likely to be disappointed. I recommend this film to those of you without who can watch films and ignore any preconceptions that you may have.
Extremely underrated!!! (by CoolHand-4)
Brainscan is without a doubt one of the better horror movies to come out in the 90's. Since it isn't attached to the SCREAM money machine, it is often overlooked. Well take my words that this movie is extremely original, well directed and well acted. A good cast makes this movie...and a great movie it is. Do not miss this or overlook it. It should be viewed and then decide for yourself. A rating of 9 out of 10 was given.
Convincing low budget thriller (by Elswet)
One of the best low budget psychological horrors ever made.Edward Furlong plays Michael, a teen-aged boy who lost his mother at a young age. As a result, he has lost his zest for life, and his respect for all things. He has ONE friend, and a healthy teen-aged fantasy life centered around the girl next door with whom he would love to enter into a relationship, but he lacks the courage and fortitude to even attempt it. Because of his loathing for his present life, like many of America's youth, he retreats into the world of video games as an escape.Enters BRAINSCAN, the newest innovation in <more>
VR video games. Michael has played everything on the market, so there is little chance of this one being any better.Wrong! This one, I think it's safe to say, completely alters his perspective on life, love, and death. It changes his life.Excellent cinematography, adequate direction, and weak performances from Frank Langella as the local homicide detective why was he even IN this movie?! ; James Marsh as Kyle, Michael's only friend; and Amy Hargreaves as the girl next door tend to drag down the decent performance given by Edward Furlong and the excellent and compelling talents of T. Ryder Smith as Trickster. That character was an odd combination of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, and Hannibal Lecter, portrayed beautifully by Smith.While this movie is far below its possibilities, it still is a top notch mind twister of a thriller. There are no scary moments, however.It is not that kind of movie. This movie was more of a psychological mind twist than anything else.SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT.Michael was forced by Trickster and ultimately the game to kill Kyle to show him that things DO matter; friends matter. And then later encouraged to do in the little cutie next door for the same reason; to show him that love also matters. And in discovering these truths, he came to understand that he, himself, mattered; a condition which he had never considered to be true.This movie has many holes in the plot, some serious acting flaws, and tends to be a bit immature. BUT, it's still a very entertaining enterprise, and well worth a good viewing or two.And lastly, some critics have labeled the ending as "stupid." If you have the mentality to comprehend the element of a twist, you'll get the ending of this movie. Was it all in his head...or wasn't it? Was any single element of the game, reality? Or was it reality which is the game? Definitely worth watching. I rate this high on my list of mind twists along with "Fallen," "Identity," and "The Game." It rates an 8.9/10 on the "B" scale, from...the Fiend :.
Brainscan is more than just a horror film. It's main character Michael Edward Furlong lost his mother at an early age. The idea of the game he plays is that it has scanned his brain and realised that he has little appreciation left for life - what with losing his mother and his father travelling on business so much - we assume that it hurts him to be around his son who survived the accident his wife died in. Michael feels that life has no worth and it's only through the playing of the 'Brainscan' game that he realises how important every life is, even a strangers life. <more>
***WARNING SPOILERS BE HERE!***This is brought to a head when he is forced to murder his best friend and then encouraged to kill 'the girl next door'.Look beyond the sometimes cheesy script and examine the psychology behind the film. You'll find it's worth a second look.
This has held up surprisingly well over time (by Dark_God)
I originally saw this when I was maybe 13, and I found it a rather tense movie back then. While I wouldn't say that any part of the movie is "scary", I don't think that any of it even attempts to be. Instead, I found myself simply feeling uneasy while watching it.I recently decided to rent it for the nostalgia factor and give it another watch, fully expecting it to be horrible and downright laughable, but I was surprised to find that this movie still has the power to make me feel uneasy and even uncomfortable while watching it.The scriptwriter's alien ideas about how <more>
computers and games work are indeed rather laughable, but if you can forgive those, the movie does an admirable job of pulling you into Michael Bower's world. Anyone who has ever done something wrong, and felt that queasiness that comes with the knowledge that yes, you are going to get caught, can relate to the situation Michael is in. The main theme, played several times throughout the movie, is very creepy and mood setting; I loved it.I found Brainscan far more compelling than the standard slasher flick or monster movie, and would readily recommend it to anyone looking for something a little more psychological.
In the mess of this whole new teeny bop friendly, horror-without-the-horror nonsense I've been seeing so much of in recent years in pieces of crap films like the "scream" series and others that remain nameless, although I am sure you know what entities I am speaking of... "Brainscan" is one of the last few greats. Greats, as in, it chooses to use a formula that is well known within the genre-yet attempts to add a twist to it, producing one of the first and one of the only watchable films of its kind ever seen "arcade"? Or those techno babble wastes of reel <more>
"Lawnmower Man 2" or "Webmaster"? I will admit, it is not the best horror film of all time, but considering it is most likely the last theatrically released film of its kind with even an tint of quality to it...the last film that took any amount of creativity to adhere to the mainstream If there is such a thing Horror genre format while trying to revamp and revitalise it... I do believe this film deserves some credit. It is what it is, I prefer not to think of it as the possibilities of it being so much more...for what was accomplished, I'd say it was well worth it..
I saw this movie when it first came out in the '90s, and watched it again just last night. I have to say it was even more enjoyable the second time around. While the supernatural aspects of the story are invaluable to the plot, the true horrors explored here are psychological and moral. It is very similar to what some theologians call a "dark night of the soul." Here, the protagonist's personal choices in dealing with awful and unprecedented situations that are leading him slowly and surely to a terrible fate and ultimately clarify for him what is truly important in life. <more>
The protagonist, Michael Brower, wallowing in fear and self-pity, obsessed with horror, finally learns what terror really is and what he must do in order to deal with it.I hesitate to call Brainscan life-affirming, but there are important lessons here, nevertheless, for those who call see them.
