Take a stroll down the Armchair Theatre video store’s center aisle. You know the one. It’s where you went when mom or dad or whoever lugged you to the strip mall on a Saturday afternoon turned their back. These are the titles you wanted to see, but never did. Or maybe you did and forgot all about them.

Regardless, that center aisle is now memory lane, so travel back with us as we pluck a title from the shelf and ask, do you remember…?

Title: Brain Smasher… A Love Story


Sam (Hatcher), a professional model, is asked by her sister to smuggle a package out of Europe for her. But soon Sam learns that her sister is up against Shaolin monks, who will stop at nothing to get the package. However, she enlists the help of roughneck bar bouncer Ed “Brain Smasher” Molloy to help her fight off the seemingly indestructible monks.

  1. Oh wow did I see that Tim Thomerson is in that?? He’s *awesome*

  2. Oh, you saw Tim Thomerson’s name all right! And let me just say that “awesome” doesn’t even begin to describe the big “T”. He’s, bar none, up there in my top five fave actors of all time!

  3. For me, all you had to say was that Brion James was in it. Then again, what movie is he NOT in? Not many people can be dead and still be in five more movies.

  4. Russell, I absolutely agree about James! He’s one of those guys that, whether he was playing broad comedy like in Raimi’s CRIMEWAVE or being down right scary as hell in something like THE HORROR SHOW, was just a great actor who was really fun to watch.

    Also, interesting trivia note: Brion James and Tim Thomerson were in the (I think it was the National Guard) together and after they got out went to New York together to become actors. They remained close friends.
