Can you help me find a sci-fi movie from the '80s with a floating brain in it? I only saw bits of it at the video store.

I've got a dusty memory of a live-action move (in color so it's not The Brain From Planet Arous) that I saw bits of on the big rear-projection TV at the VHS rental store when I was a kid. I was intensely curious but never actually saw it, and I have no idea what it was called.
I just have a few vignettes that I remember:
- Aliens in an underground base on Earth
- A floating brain with a face emerging through a wall made of black tentacles
- A female schoolteacher-type character under control of the floating brain
- The floating brain opening its mouth and eyes widely and something blinking or burning on the back of that character's neck
- Two people in white coveralls searching for something in the desert, then suddenly falling into a hole which opens beneath their feet
Does this ring any bells with anyone?
