When nuclear scientists Steve (John Agar) and Dan (Robert Fuller)
investigate a freak occurence of radiation at Mystery Mountain in the
middle of the desert, they are attacked by a brain from outer space
(planet Arous to be precise), which promptly kills Dan and possesses
Steve. The possessed Steve then returns home to his fiancée Sally (Joyce
Meadows) - and soon she notices he starts to behave strange: He suddenly
is a much more passionate kisser (you see, the brain, Gor by name, has the
hots for Sally as well), he repeatedly talks about world domination, and
he always comes up with some feeble lies why Dan did not come back from
Mystery Mountain with him. Oh and by the way, he has now developed the
ability to blow up airplanes and stuff by the power of thought alone.
Anyways, Sally wants to find out what's going on and so she and her
father (Thomas Browne Henry) make a trip for Mystery Mountain, where they
meet another brain, Vol, but Vol is a good brain chasing the evil Gor, who
is a mad conqueror. Before long, Vol has decided to possess Sally's dog to
always be near Steve and eventually get him ...
STeve meanwhile has met with top brass of the military and demonsrated
his powers during some nuclear tests proving to them that they are much
stronger than any atom bomb. And before you know it, the world has to
agree to do Steve's - or rather Gor's - bidding.
But according to Vol, Gor has to leave his human host for at least a
few minutes every 24 hours and materialize as his true self (which is of
course a big brain - with eyes), during which time and only then he is
vulnerable. And somehow, Sally can slip this information to Steve, who in
the end attacks Gor just when Gor is about to attack Sally, and defeats
the alien invader ...
Brainsploitation at its funniest !!!
A stupid alien invasion story, a ridiculous brain creature, cheapish
effects and sets, the usual second-rate American B-actors and a hilarious
finale all add up to one hell of a funny film. Not a good film, mind you,
but incredibly entertaining to watch.
