Brain Damage (1988)


Brian an average guy from New York City begins an unwilling symbiotic relationship with an evil, disembodied brain eating parasite called “Aylmer”. Aylmer secretes a highly addictive, hallucinogenic blue fluid into Brian’s brain. In return for a steady supply of the fluid, Brian must seek out innocent victims for Aylmer, so that he can devour their brains for sustenance. The film was largely a metaphor for drug addiction.

From Director Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case Trilogy)

Near the end of the film, there is a brief appearance by a man on the subway with a large wicker basket. This is meant to be a cameo appearance by Duane Bradley, the main character from Henenlotter’s earlier film Basket Case.
