Much more than I expected
25 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The horror genre is such a guilty pleasure that actually went to a midnight screening of Headhunter at the Dances With Films Film Festival.  

I rolled my eyes when the ticket price was ten bucks and saw that the crowd of film-goers seemed largely populated by friends of the production, at least it seemed to be. I mean there were at least a couple hundred people there. At Midnight. So I'm thinking red flag central. I sat in back anticipating an early exit. But what I experienced far exceeded my low expectations. 

This wasn't some Michael Bay produced remake glossed up for wide release and big numbers on the opening weekend. Headhunter is an independent horror movie that doesn't benefit from limitless funds and mega stars trying to cash in on the re-surging popularity of this classic genre.  Headhunter relied soley on being well written, directed, acted, and edited. 

  This is not The Exorcist, or The Ring, but it is a smart little film that hits all the beats, all the suspense and all the essential twists and turns well. The make up was great. The effects were great. I mean yeah, it's obvious they had limited funds but it's also obvious that Paul Tarantino is a skilled filmmaker who knows how to make a good film without Stan Winston's genius propping him up. 

My hat is off to Tarantino and his cast. Oh yeah, another big reason why I loved Headhunter was because it's pretty damn campy too. It never takes itself too seriously yet stays true to its purpose, Horror. That, to me, is what is so special about this film. Headhunter's a good bet. Rent it.
