Brain Dead

How many titles of "Brain Dead" does a genre need?

Anyway...from Fango:
The director did his own pass on the script, changing the giant bug to marauding zombies, a switch that Gelineau says made the screenplay “read faster and more dangerous.” Gelineau did final revisions, and BRAIN DEAD lensed this past summer in the mountains of Tujunga, CA. The cast of up-and-comers includes David Crane as the psychopathic Bob, Joshua Benton as Clarence, the wisecracking convict, Sarah Grant Brendecke and Michelle Tomlinson as the coeds, Andy Forrest as the Rev. Eldon Farnsworth, Cristina Tiberia as his secretary and Tess McVicker in a forest-ranger role originally written for a man. Despite all this acting talent, Gelineau says, “The makeup effects are, in fact, the real stars of the film. Gory movies are almost as much fun to work on as they are to watch. When Bartalos and his crew showed up with plastic bags full of body parts, people couldn’t stop giggling. When Kevin’s brother, score composer and actor Dennis Michael Tenney [being made up by Bartalos at bottom] showed up in full zombie prosthetics, everyone on the set wanted their picture taken with him. When Joshua and Sarah were splattered with black goo from an exploding head, it was all they could do to keep from exploding themselves!”
