Cerebrum (2021)

Tom (Christian James, Hell Fest) has become a human lab rat to try to make enough money to survive, becoming part of his father’s (James Russo, whose career stretches back to being the robber in Fast Times at Ridgemont High) memory experiment. But when he’s accused of a crime that he can’t recall, he must risk his own sanity to reveal the truth, even if the court has a digital backup of his mind.

Father and son have never gotten along, so one night after an argument, our protagonist wakes up in the yard and, as stated above, suddenly learns that he may have killed his father, who has created a program that can reinstall your memories.

This is the first script that Garry D. Houk has written (he also was part of the film’s art department). It’s also the first full-length movie from director Arvi. And while there are issues with length and the story, it’s not a bad film. It has some great ideas and could have been a bit shorter, but both will be talents to look for in the future.

Cerebrum is available on demand from Glasshouse Distribution. You can learn more on the official website and Facebook page.
