    Brain, The (1988)
"Brain, The" Boxart

Dr. Anthony Blakely hosts a show called "Independent Thinking" which is sweeping the nation. On the show, Blakely is a kind-hearted old man that helps people with their everyday problems. Every parent in the city is taking their children to his institute for counseling.
However, behind the scenes, Blakely is in cahoots with a killer psychic brain that grows everytime it eats a person. Don't ask. The brain, hooked up to numerous wires and floating in slime, is using it's powers to 'brain'wash (haha) the people of the city.
Meanwhile, a young troublemaker named Jim has been sent to the institute. Tests done on Jim (which include seeing Christine Kossak's clothes fly off?) indicate that his brain is too strong to succumb to the 'brain'washing (hahaha). He is labeled a threat to society and accused of murder. On the run with his girlfriend Janet, Jim must stay one step ahead of Verna, Blakely's alarmingly persistent RFWG (random fat white guy) assistant. Will Jim and Janet survive? Can he clear his name before it's too late? Will we see the people who are pushing the brain around in a camera shot? That last one at least is a resounding YEP!
