Plot Synopsis:

The Brainiac (US Standard Edition)

Director: Chano Urueta

Cast: Abel Salazar, Ariadne Welter, David Silva

One of the most notorious films to emerge from Mexico's horror film boom, The Brainiac (El barón del terror), is a terrifying tale of vengeance across the centuries.

In 1661, the Inquisition sentences Baron d'Estera (Abel Salazar) to be burned at the stake for his sorcery. Three hundred years later, the Baron returns to Mexico City on a comet, to exact a peculiar form of vengeance upon the descendants of his tormentors... by sucking out their brains!

From director Chano Urueta (The Witch’s Mirror), this outrageous Mexican variation on monster-movie conventions is a firm favourite amongst cult-film fans.
