This is Jim Carrey’s big breakthrough – his first starring role as a frustrated teenage virgin who can’t get his girlfriend to give it up, so he turns to a female vampire instead and gets more than he bargained for. It’s goofy as hell and 80’s through-and-through, which means we more or less loved it.
Braindead is often cited as the goriest film ever made, and it’s hard to dispute. But it’s a big favorite of Todd’s, and a request from at least one of our listeners over the years. Enjoy!
Even though it’s a found-footage movie, even Todd found something to like about it.
And what a ride it is. We found more charm here than your average , thanks to some excellent writing, great cinematography, and the decision to “keep it real” on the…um…beaver effects.
Have a listen to see what we thought of this 80’s horror comedy, and whether it stacks up to the original.
