Brain Twisters (1991)

This weekend is it, I am going to finish the Gorehouse Greats Collection! Tonight I watched Brain Twisters from 1991 and tomorrow I will finish the last two flicks Nightmare in Wax and Stanley.

Plot/ College student Laurie Stevens gets a crash course in horror when she discovers that her favorite professor's computer-game research is really a series of mind-control experiments. Pushed by a software company to accelerate his research, the unethical teacher ignores the fact that students become violent after exposure to the game. Soon, Laurie teams with police to investigate a series of seemingly unrelated on-campus murders and suicides.

Again, I am amazed at how this ended up on this box set, because this movie totally lacks any type of gore. In fact, my first thought was this was a made-for-TV flick that ended up on video. In the end, it is just another mediocre movie that is destined to be forgotten (until it ends up on another one of these box sets). For horror fans, there is very little to like and it is missing many of the elements that at least made the low budget movies tolerable. There are very little (if any) blood, no guts, no nudity and only a couple of kills that take place on screen. The acting is OK and the video effects look more late 1970s early 1980s. To be honest, this one is a mess and I cannot recommend it at all.
