A normal, average guy who lives in New york City becomes dependent on an evil, disembodied brain. The brain feeds the guy a narcotic substance in exchange for his unwilling assistance in obtaining the brains of innocent victims for sustenance. This turns into a tour of circa-1980s underground NyC clubs, backlots, and other seedy locations. One scene features the band Swimming Pool Cues playing the song "Corruption."

- On the subway, Brian sees a man carrying a big basket with a lock on it. The character is from Frank Henenlotter's previous film, Basket Case (1982).
As Brian wakes up for the first time in his bed, his head covered in blood, an album poster is spotted on the wall, Slayer's "Reign In Blood".
Horror host Zacherley provided the uncredited voice of Aylmer.
The theatrical and original home-video releases of his film deleted the most gruesome scenes, such as the "fellatio" gag.
During the fellatio scene the crew walked out of the production refusing to work on the scene. A similar incident happened during the shooting of 'Basket Case'
