This week on Psychotic Saturdays! Saturday I decided to post six films that explore the scenarios of when science gets psychotic. From the classic tales to the out of this world visions the movies to indulge those psychotic tendencies are truly cult-astic insanity!

1. Bleeders (1997)

Bleeders-movieSometimes the very cells within nature itself can produce devilishly psychotic effects. Something so small that only a microscope can detect can produce such twisted treats as maniacal flesh craving maniacs.
A man with an unknown disease travels to an island with his girlfriend where his relatives once lived, hoping to find a cure to his illness. While it was thought that his relatives were all dead he actually finds them to be living underground. However because they have been inbreeding for all these years they don't look right, plus they have developed a pretty bad eating habit. Will he chose his girlfriend or his people? Directed by Peter Svatek and starring Gillian Ferrabee, Pascal Gruselle and Roy Dupuis.

2. Brainscan (1994)

Despite the objections of her boyfriend, a police detective, Mary becomes the only link between the killer and authorities, something that doesn't hurt her ratings, but has a devastating effect on her personal life.  Directed by Michael DiPaolo and starring Molly Jackson, Marc St. Camille and Michael P.
