Motion Picture Marketing opened Ulli Lommel's horror pic BRAINWAVES in Cincinnati, OH on November 19, 1982. When their promo campaigns failed to impress Lommel, MPM returned both this film and THE DEVONSVILLE TERROR to him so he could seek distribution elsewhere. Theatrical bookings for THE DEVONSVILLE TERROR were handled by Cineworld Pictures, while BRAINWAVES was picked up by Comworld Pictures and rechristened MIND GAMES (It was later edited for a PG rating and re-titled SHADOW OF DEATH). Both films were released on videocassette by Embassy Home Entertainment.
