AIPT Movies Podcast episode 85: Junesis: ‘Brainscan’

Excessive milk drinking!

It’s June, so that means it’s time for the AIPT Movies podcast’s “Junesis” series! Where we cover movies based on/revolving around video games! In this week’s episode, Alex, Tim, and Matt are joined by artist and friend Chrissy Kurpeski to discuss Edward Furlong’s unfortunate run-in with a fictional video game, 1994’s Brainscan!

A fantastic concept with mixed results! Excessive milk drinking! A lovable musical motif that works no matter how often it’s overused! A very non-slashery slasher with a script from the guy who wrote Se7en! Potentially the most oddly “romantic” portrayal of voyeurism since Body Double! An entertaining cast that includes Edward Furlong being himself, a charmingly-sleepy Frank Langella, and T. Ryder Smith as the confusingly-likable gothic punk harbinger of digital doom, The Trickster! A 90s time capsule that examines the demonization of media, the growing obsession with video games, and the early stages of the internet! A movie that’s not only a great double feature pairing with 1986’s Trick or Treat, but also seems to suggest that violent video games are merely an escape from the true horrors of being a teenager! 

In addition, Alex shares his spoiler-free thoughts on the newest entry in one of his favorite movie series, Bad Boys: Ride or Die!
