Synopsis


Man With the Screaming Brain
A wealthy industrialist in search of a tax break finds himself at the mercy of a deranged scientist in this surreal comic thriller from Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell. While his overwhelming greed and hawkish business sensibilities have helped to ensure pharmaceutical CEO William Cole (Campbell) a fairly comfortable existence, that doesn't stop the money-minded businessman from traveling to Bravoda with his trophy wife, Jackie (Antoinette Byron), in a bid to diversify his company's holdings. As William heads out to meet with city officials and Jackie gets better acquainted with handsome chauffeur Yegor (Vladimir Kolev), Dr. Ivan Ivanov (Stacy Keach) and his hip-hopping assistant Pavel (Ted Raimi) come close to completing an experiment that may revolutionize organ transplants. When an unfortunate encounter with obsessive hotel maid Tatoya (Tamara Gorski) finds William, Yegor, and Jackie all taken under the care of Dr. Ivanov, a series of transplant surgeries result in both William and Yegor sharing William's body and Jackie's brain being transferred into a break-dancing robot. Now, if William ever has any hope of getting his head back to himself, he and Yegor must use their combined knowledge to hit the streets to find the woman responsible for their deaths. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Alien Apocalypse
An astronaut doctor and his fellow space traveler return to planet Earth after an extended mission only to find that the human population has been enslaved by a race of evil aliens in director Josh Becker's kitchy tale of terror from the skies. Ivan Hood (Bruce Campbell) and his partner, Kelly (Renee O' Connor), have been away on a mission in deep space for 40 years. Of course, quite a lot can change over the course of four decades, and when Ivan and Kelly discover that the Earth has been overrun by finger-eating bugs from outer space, they set out to start a revolution designed to take back the planet. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    What more can you say, Bruce Campbell, both acts and directs The Man With The Screaming Brain...watch the behind the scenes dealings with Bruce and his partner as they describe the nearly 20 year journey it took to bring this "epic" to the screen. But wait , there's more. Alien Apocalypse is the utterly strange genre mash-up of Planet of the Apes and Empire of the Ants or something. Both films are fun, with limited budgets and time the end product is quite remarkable. A pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon.

    Bruce Campbell in two sci fi horror films trying to jump start his career. years before his successful new Ash vs Evil dead TV series. It's Bruce Campbell. What else can be said. He's good in any movie or TV show in my opinion.

    What can I say, two fantastic examples of Hollywood's leading B actor chewing up all the scenery and taking no names. When Bruce is involved entertainment will follow! Loved these ones, so will you!!!!

    Alien Apocalypse is forgettable, but The Man With The Screaming Brain is so ridiculous that you should definitely take a look. Both have the Bruce doing commentary tracks.

    This is a must see for any Bruce Campbell fan. Even if you're not, but enjoy hokey B horror movies (this is well done though), then you'll have fun watching.

    This combo of Bruce Campbell B Movies are worth a goofy good time. Bruce is at his best in both. If your a fan of his then these movies are both worth a watch.
