From the director of Basket Case

Aylmer's back and sharper than ever in this newly remastered DVD Limited Edition.

A worm-like parasite named Aylmer latches into Brian's (Rick Herbst) neck and offers to inject his brain with a hallucinogenic fluid, giving him pleasurable psychedelic experiences. But the catch is, to keep the "high", Brian has to feed Aylmer his favorite food...human brains! Directed by Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker), this amazing cult film favorite will have you screaming with laughter as you reach for your barf bag!

Now available on this DVD in a pristine new 2003 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen transfer with a newly remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 track, Brain Damage will jump off your screen and rock your speakers like never before. This version of Brain Damage contains all the gore sequences deleted from the U.S. theatrical release, including the infamous "brain pulling" sequence!
