It's pretty decent but it isn't sci-fi. It's a noir style crime thriller.

I've seen it twice since i bought it.

here's what i said in the What Films Have You Seen? thread.

Quote:
The Brain Machine (1955)

A taught Brit Noir about a doctor taken hostage by a smuggler after she discovers via a new brain research experiment that he's psychotic.

This isn't science fiction, the brain machine of the title is only in this film during the opening scenes as it becomes clear that a new patient (Maxwell Reed) has something wrong with him. The bulk of the film is a crime thriller that zips along at a breathless twisty turny pace.

Elizabeth Allan is a strong female lead for the most part but ultimately gets lost in the mayhem as the thoughtful plot makes way for shoot outs with the police.

All in all, The Brain Machine is a fine example of a pulpy British crime thriller.

Thanks, it sounds interesting enough and those DVDs come in super slim cases They have those Look at Life sets on sale too so I'm going to buy the Transport one, so may as well add this film as well, that's it then, logging off the website and pretending like the sale isn't happening

I have seven things in my basket.

Definitely be getting Baywatch 2 and Nigel Kneale's The Crunch probably Great Continental Railway Journeys: Series 4 too.

There's a film, a horror, called We Go On which seems highly thought of from the same director of the excellent Witch in the Window.
So will no doubt get that too.

That helps with the temptation. Had a dispatch notice at 9am for the remainder of my order, should arrive by Wednesday. Just in time to get packed away because itís horror films only from tomorrow.
