Ash from "Evil Dead" + "Office Space" = Headhunter!
7 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught this film at a packed midnight screening last night. What a surprise! Solid acting in all, with a stand-out performance delivered by Benjamin Parrillo... playing Ben Caruso, the film's lead, a character who does so many wrong things, yet you laughingly cheer for him to somehow make it through... thus reminding me of the Ash character from Evil Dead but instead of the woods, Ben finds himself having to survive his ordeal on the graveyard shift at his new office job... While the humor isn't quite as over-the-top as Evil Dead, it still had me laughing out loud (along with the rest of the audience) quite a bit.

The gore FX are fun, with a cross between physical and CGI working quite well. There are definitely some gory spots that will have the fan's of blood & guts movies cheering.

The sound in Headhunter was especially good, with what seemed to be deep layers of sound fx. Normally indie films are far too simplistic, not layered like typical Hollywood films... But this film took it's sound serious, from cool creature voices to eerie sound fx, it delivered.

Between Parrillo's performance and Paul Tarantino's directing, Headhunter delivers the goods.
