Dr. Blake runs a TV show called "Independent Thinkers", which is sort of a Scientology-like self-help/religion program. But he's not making his audience think any more independently - with the help of an alien organism he calls The Brain, he's using brainwashing and mind control. The only thing that stands between them and world domination is a brilliant but troubled high school student with a penchant for pranks...The Brain featuring Tom Bresnahan and Cynthia Preston is streaming with subscription on Shout! Factory TV (Via Prime Video), and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's a Horror and Science Fiction movie with a less than average IMDb audience rating of 5.3 (1,906 votes) and was not well received by critics.
