Movie Review: Crinoline Head (1995)
4 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

The debut film from Indie filmmaker and friend Tommy Faircloth has many good things going for it... Once you realize that this film was intended as a parody and not to be taken too seriously, it really is a hell of a fun ride.

The basis of this film is somewhat cliché as a group of friends go to a secluded cabin with a somewhat dark past (unbeknowst to them) for a weekend of fun, until the killer shows up.

This is where the cliché ends: Our Killer isn't ordinary, he wears a crinoline doll like material over his head (which you'll find out why if you watch this film), the creative and inventive death scenes that range from death by: Ascot to Feces are ones to behold. Some of the most colourful characters (some are quite annoying and get well what's coming to them), and a drunk drag queen who is hooking in the boonies (a scene too funny to miss).

Having said that, this film was shot on 16mm and has a great VHS style look to it, not to mention a great audio track that rivals most indie films that are out there today IMO. For a directorial debut this film has everything, One hell of a kick ass punk soundtrack from Liquid Meat Records, colorful characters, great deaths, adding from what I mentioned earlier; Interesting and funny one liners, great origin story for our killer, and a great twist ending!!

I love this film just as much as I do its counterpart - Dorchester's Revenge (which I plan on reviewing next).

If you have a chance to check this independent film out do so!!
