Storyline

Wayne Montgomery was Delaware's most prolific serial killer. From 1986-1989, he was responsible for the deaths of countless people, while maintaining a quiet suburban life with his wife Andrea. In 1989, he took an extended hiatus from his work to settle down and help raise a family. In 2006, Wayne decided to come out of retirement to continue his life's work, with Andrea now joining him in his craft. The grisly details of Wayne and Andrea's horrific crimes were captured by Wayne's video camera, a sick, twisted way to relive the experience again and again. Hundreds of hours of shocking footage shot over a period of several months have been edited into a feature length film, with cooperation from the victims' families. This footage is now being presented as the feature film HEAD CASE. From award-winning filmmaker Anthony Spadaccini. Written by Anthony Spadaccini

A husband and wife document their serial murders
8 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Headcase has one of the most interesting plots I've ever heard of or seen in my life. The filmography was amazing and extremely effective in what the film was trying to accomplish.

If you aren't fond of blood and gore, this movie might not be for you, but if you are a fan of the horror and gore movies, this one is certainly one to see. You never know what is going to happen next and Spadaccini keeps you guessing.

Altogether I very much enjoyed this film and I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good horror story or appreciates great filmography.
