The Brain from Planet Arous


Dir. Nathan Juran (1958).
Programmed by Tim Burton as part of his “Lurid Beauty of Monsters” series, this enjoyably idiotic cheapster trafficks in alien invasion, atomic angst, and the transmigration of souls—it takes on a whole new luster as imagined through Burton’s eyes as a vehicle for Johnny Depp, Helen Carter Bonham, a pair of encephalitic puppets and a talking dog.
