When I saw the title of this film I assumed it might be about some sort of warped game of Soduku or IQ puzzles. I was wrong. It’s about how flashing lights from a monitor can turn people into ruthless killers. There is also some randomness about a video game company wanting to turn gamers into killers. The reason is unknown, but one assumes it is simply just to see if they can do it.
Brain Twisters starts out with a girl getting hit by a car and then cutting to head phones flying through air and crashing. Uh oh. It’s one of those kinds of movies. Ya know, the kind that make you want to scratch your eyeballs out with spork that you find in a dumpster that the homeless use for ejaculate purposes whilst pounding off to the thought of Sigourney Weaver in Alien. Yeah, that kind of movie.
There are only a few characters of note, but interestingly they seem to be having a contest centering on who can give the most stilted and wooden performance in a feature film. It’s a close call but the professor beats out the slut and the cop. The slut, though, has some humdingers of lines like, “Any pointers you would like to give me?” and “I’ll do anything to pass this course!” which she says with less conviction than your below average adult actress.
I own this film as part of a DVD collection entitled Gorehouse Greats which is quite the understatement. This movie would be hard-pressed to even get a PG-13 rating. Almost all the deaths are off screen or employ the random object falling to the ground to indicate death. It’s past the point of absurdity. The film does itself no favors in the way of not having any interesting deaths, boobs, or coherent plot. I can’t think of a reason or a scene even that is worth viewing. Maybe the part where the slut brushes the side of some guy’s neck with her fingernail causing him, naturally, to die almost instantly.
Brain Twisters is simply a bad film. Not the kind of bad film that is fun to watch. Just a bad film. Avoid at all costs. You would be better off rolling around in the aforementioned dumpster.
