The Brainiac or El barón del terror 1962
Picture it…1661 Mexico, the Baron Vitelius of Astara has been sentenced to be burned alive at the stake by the Holy Inquisition of Mexico for witchcraft, necromancy, and crimes against nature!
Behold the papery comet!
But as he stands frying in the flames of justice, as in all good revenge/horror films the Baron swears vengeance against the descendants of the Inquisitors.
Now…300 years later, coinciding with a comet that streaks overhead like a fiery paper cut out in all it’s glory of early special effectiness, on the night of the Baron’s execution, he is resurrected as a brain-eating fiend that wreaks havoc and brain sucking retribution on all the descendants of the Inquisitor. Nothing like a steamy pewter serving dish of fresh brains…yum!
Directed by Chano Urueta and starring Abel Salazar (Curse of The Crying Woman 1963, The Vampire 1957)as the Baron Vitelius/Brainiac. Also starring Ariadna Welter and David Silva. A fabulous Mexican Horror film from the 60s that just sort of stays with you…!
“See horrible and insane killings as the Count turns into a monster and seeks his revenge!”
