The most VIOLENT movie ever made! Starring Godfather of Gore Lucio Fulci
Acclaimed Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci, director of ZOMBIE and THE BEYOND, stars in this blood-soaked epic as a director being driven insane by his own movies. Fulci is thrust into an ultra-violent nightmare of death and depravity where murder and madness consume his sanity in a vortex of violence. CAT IN THE BRAIN is a psychological masterpiece in the tradition of such cinematic classics as PSYCHO, STRAIT-JACKET, ERASERHEAD and Fellini’s 8 1/2.
“A shattering exposition of gore, mutilation and sordid sex, certain to satisfy the sick set. A MASTERPIECE!” – David F. Friedman, legendary producer of BLOOD FEAST and ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE S.S.
“Chainsaw eviscerations, decapitations, piano-wire throat slashings, intestines being fed to ravenous pigs, eye-gougings, masses of T&A, graphic knifings, tongue-rippings…all and much more are present and correct. And I mean much more! FOUR STARS!” – Chas. Balun’s Deep Red
“Chainsaw mayhem, cannibalism, lusty Nazis, steak tartar, blood and gore – all rounded off with some highly amusing offbeat antics by the great man himself. What more could a horror fan ask for? A great film.” – Alan Simpson, SGM Film Review
“CAT IN THE BRAIN remains my favorite of Lucio Fulci’s movies.” – David J. Schow
