THE BRAIN FROM PLANET AROUS (1958) ***

The usually restrained John (Revenge of the Creature) Agar must have had a field day with this role.  He’s a scientist who goes to “Magic Mountain” and finds a huge, transparent, glowing brain named Gor with big eyes.  It takes over his mind and uses his body to try to take over the world.  When Gor uses his telepathic powers, Agar’s eyes go black and he gets an evil grin on his face when shooting down airplanes with his mind.  A good brain comes to stop Gor and controls the mind of Agar’s DOG!  The only way to kill Gor is to force him out of Agar’s body and hit him in the part of the brain called The Fissure of Rolando.  (The Cramps did a song with that title, written about this movie.)  Good performances and effects make this a must see for 50’s Sci-Fi fans.
