  1. I'm a fan Asian horror movies and thrillers, I always check out new releases. The Brain Man is one of those movies that are based on novels or manga that is as I noticed the trend now in Japanese flicks. There have been lesser Japanese horror films being released that the country is commonly known for, but instead more thrillers are being made (reminds me of a lot of great South Korean thrillers). That is just my observation, by the way. If they're producing these thrillers, fans would expect Japan to do it better or at least as good as those of South Korea.

    The Brain Man is not a disappointment. It's slow-paced but the build-up is great. The story is very intriguing and I liked it a lot. It is more of a mystery indeed, but there are a lot of explosions (literal), murder, and cops here so this would qualify as a thriller. There are also a few count of psychos here to complete the story. The so-called Brain Man's character is incredibly acted by Toma Ikuta. Others are good actors as well. Enough said. I recommend not reading the plot or watching the subtitled trailer beforehand for a pleasant surprise.

    The time I watched this, I also watched after a movie called Platinum Data, which is another Japanese thriller. That time I was having a damn good time. Both are great films!

    I recommend watching this excellent flick, and Platinum Data too, but not Miike's Shield of Straw. Hoping to see more movies like these from Japan. Plus more horror movies!
