Ya pays ya money...
30 March 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This seems to be a movie people either go with or they don't. Personally, while watching this, I was always bearing in mind the obvious low budget origins of 'Shrunken Heads', and thus was pretty amazed at what they managed to put on celluloid for the money. I think the film cost around $2 million, but has a definite 'big studio' feel to it. The cinematography is, at times, wonderfully colourful, with bright cartoonish hues. The acting is a bit shaky (only Julius Harris seems to have gotten a hold on his character) but there's plenty elsewhere to compensate: the art direction, the eclectic, left of centre score from Danny Elfman & Richard Band (including lifts from Satie & Bernstien). Really, in the current state of play where low budget genre pics usually only appeal to the lowest common denominator (ripping off Scream/Halloween/Alien/The Thing et al) a movie like this should be heralded. It's a genuine attempt to get back to the 'anything goes' aesthetic of 1970's exploitation cinema, and a movie that will probably be better thought of in twenty years time than in the current climate of 'Generic Blockbuster Videos'.............
