When I was 3 years old, my mom was busy and left me in my folks' room with the TV on to keep me occupied. What I remember is my first, genuine TV or movie induced terror was triggered when a giant, floating brain with glowing eyes appeared on screen to muck about with people.
I lost my damn mind.
The fact is, my mom didn't and doesn't watch movies or TV and saw something black and white on TV, and I suspect she thought "it's the middle of the day and whatever this is will be old and boring but fine". Noooope. I was not fine.
For about four decades, I had no idea what movie this was. And then, thanks to the internet, I finally figured it out a few years ago, but the DVD was super expensive, so I didn't buy it.
Well, this movie is now streaming on Amazon. And we're going to watch it and see what freaked me the hell out when I was 3 years old.
