BBFC Reason
gory images, strong language

BBFC Ratings info
BRAIN DEAD is a 1990 US sci-fi thriller in which a businessman asks his neurosurgeon friend to help him extract information from the mind of a mathematical genius who is now being held in a psychiatric hospital. Injury detail: Gory sequences include close-up images of an electrical probe being applied to and inserted into the exposed, bloody brain of a psychiatric patient. People experience disturbing hallucinations including images of murder victims covered in blood, with occasional gory wound detail. In another hallucination, a man digs his fingers into a stitched surgical wound and pulls off the top of his own scalp. Language: There is use of strong language (‘f**k’, ‘c**ksucker’). Milder terms include ‘shit’, ‘piss’, ‘bastard’, ‘ass’ and ‘son of a bitch’. There are outdated depictions of psychiatric patients, as well as infrequent use of discriminatory language including ‘nuts’ and ‘lost his marbles’. One brief sequence shows a man being forced to undergo electroconvulsive therapy, and a hallucination sequence shows patients locked in cages in an old-fashioned mental asylum.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Some gruesome imagery of brain surgery aftermath. Even the movie poster could be considered frightening. Much of the movie focuses on mental illness. A man appears to be suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. It becomes hard for him to distinguish between reality and fantasy. A man believes he is being followed by a man in a suit covered in blood that is laughing.
