Brand Upon the Brain! | 2007
Whatever are young "Guy Maddin's" parents really up to in their lighthouse home/orphanage on a chilly remote island? Overbearing Mother tracks her son's every move, bellowing for him to come home over the "Aerophone" just as something interesting is about to happen! And poor Sis, his older sister (who is rapidly blossoming into a young woman)--Mother will never let her have any fun! The intrigue continues as deranged Mother, hellbent on restoring her youth and sinister Scientist-Father who is sequestered night and day in his basement laboratory, engage in diabolical, secret experimentation. When new parents of recently adopted children from the orphanage notice strange wounds on the youngsters' necks, a pair of teen sleuths, Wendy and her brother Chance, known as "The Lightbulb Kids," appear on the island to investigate--and in the process, inspire Guy's first crush and Sis' first love affair. The lurid family secrets that unfold are positively shocking.
