The Brain Eaters
I was home sick yesterday with gigantic migraine pain and I was definately feeling like I was one of the undead. I was hoping a horror movie on tv might cheer me up. With one eye open, I watched The Brain Eaters, a 1950's horror movie. Judging by the name of the movie, I was waiting for some actual brain eating, but alas there was none.
Basically, wet guinea pig looking things with antennas attacked people and they turned their victims into puppet zombies after sticking their antennas into the base of the victim's necks. When they detached, they left a poison that went into the victim's brains and killed them.
"All of the people who have died have bite marks on the back of their necks and it turns out these are the work of parasites.... These turn out to be millions of year old aliens who want to rule the world and have been living underground all this time."
It wasn't a very scary movie at all, but the poster is quite frightening. I think it might make a good migraine mascot. What do you think?
