Movie Review: Crinoline Head (1995)
4 September 2016 | by Brandon StephensSee 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!!
