Absolutely Crazy Promotional Piece for Braindead (Dead Alive) (1992) from Japan


Big thanks to Japanese master cult collector nezumitsuo (check out his blog here) for providing these images and information on this extremely rare promo item made for Shochiku Home Video's VHS release of Peter Jackson's Braindead (Dead Alive). This vinyl blow-up doll, depicting the rotting lovechild of Father McGruder and Nurse McTavish, is a popular type of doll in Japan known as a Dakkochan with stiff oval arms meant to embrace and a small bell inside. The film's Japanese title, ブレインデッド (Braindead), can seen on its back. He was lucky enough to win this doll in a magazine sweepstakes some time ago. I want one too, dammit!

The last 30 minutes of Peter Jacksons "Brain Dead" is still perhaps THE most astonishing piece of film-making i`ve ever witnessed.

That is an awesome collectable, sweet for such a gorefest of a flick. :D
