Where this goes awry is the main characters/heroes of the film. It's your standard teenage couple, Jim, the wise-talking sex-obsessed James Deanesque boyfriend and Janet, the squeaky clean, I'm waiting for college, screams all the time and gets easily captured girlfriend (what part of STAY HERE do these bitches not understand?!?). Smart-ass Jim gets in trouble in school and is forced by his parents to see Dr. Blakely for his behavioral problems. This is when he finds out the good Doctor has a hot European assistant with nice boobs and oh, he's not really a doctor. The rest of the film involves he and Janet trying to convince other people in town that Dr. Blakely is not what he seems, but unfortunately they have both been framed for the murders committed by the monster brain so no one really listens.
Here's where the mildly entertaining moves into incredibly infuriating. These two assholes have to be the fucking stupidest fugitives of ALL time. First of all, they never feel the need to actually run from anything or at least not a very accelerated speed. Although Janet has seen the killer brain eat a guy with her own two eyes, she refuses to believe that the brain is actually controlling minds. Is that really too far fetched at this point? She decides to call her Dad, an avid watcher of Independent Thinking after Jim explicitly tells her not to. Obviously, this leads the doctor's ONE goon directly to them. Oh yeah, so Dr. Blakely has a giant alien brain to do his bidding, but only ONE fucking goon to do all his killing.
