The cult classic is back! SIX WOMEN WITH BRAIN DEATH is a hard rockin', harder talkin' roller coaster ride through the end of the millennium. It's a wild and womanly supermarket checkout, headline touting, right-on look at our contemporary culture, from "genuine press-on-nails" to Barbie and Ken, with detours through a forest where Bambi meets Rambo and severed heads from aging prom queens have a chatty life after decapitation. With music and lyrics by Oklahoma's own Mark Houston, this hilarious romp is, once again, sure to please!
