Frank Henenlotter’s opus magnum. A normal, average guy who lives in New York City becomes dependent on an evil, disembodied brain in the form of human excrement. The brain named Aylmer feeds the guy a narcotic substance in exchange for certain services. The talking fecal monster, the real hero of the film, can be understood as a symbol of drug addiction, male genitalia or the hero‘s unconsciousness. Oral sex can be dangerous.
