A group of hapless teens come across the relic and their weekend camping trip becomes a nightmare of blood, feces, and more head than a night in Tijuana.

A totally wacky blast
15 October 2014 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

The sublimely ludicrous story alone promises quite a wonderfully ridiculous good time: The deadly disembodied head of a centuries old Aztec warrior gets brought back to life and embarks on a grisly murderous spree. Writers/directors Dustin Drover and Justin Propp fortunately don't attempt to take this preposterous premise seriously for a minute and instead go for broke nutty in the most wild, loopy, and hysterical manner possible: We've got a hilariously crude sense of no-holds-barred unapologetic raunchy humor, oodles of gloriously excessive and over-the-top splashy splatter, tacky (not so) special effects (the titular floating'n'flying severed noggin looks uproariously fake), broadly drawn characters, a roaring rock soundtrack, and, most surprisingly, even a substantial amount of nerve-rattling tension and creepy atmosphere generated in the exciting and energetic last third. Moreover, it's acted with gusto by a pumped cast, with especially game contributions from Josh Harmon as nice guy Steve Chesternut, Andrea Smith as brash redhead Megan, Theodore Koepke as tubby wimp Marty Silo, Damion Drover as macho dude Rick Rubbington, and Ryan Smietanski as mean bully Stone Silo. Kudos are also in order for Propp's crisp cinematography and Luke Lorbiecke's ominous hum'n'shiver synthesizer score. Done with a winning dearth of pretense and a teeming surplus infectiously giddy aplomb, this honey overall rates as a real hoot and a half.
