Solid Horror Thriller
27 August 2010 | by fdieringSee all my reviews

Just saw the German production „Headhunter – The Assessment Weekend" and was really satisfied with the gritty and humoresque attitude the Kraut director Sebastian Panneck is creating in his homage to the 70ties horror low-budget flicks. The characters are drawn with a sarcastic sense and after a calm beginning the film starts to gather pace. Lots of bloody gruesome deaths are happening to the lost students in the backwoods until the final encounter of the lead figures. The surprising end finishes this cool b-movie with a smacker. A good story telling through the editing is the base for a reliable and sound film experience. The lead actors are American and the performance of all actors is very solid. It seems that most of them are native speakers so the quality of the used language shows not the weakness (sometimes embarrassment) of other European productions with non-English Actors. The ghostly and partly disturbing soundtrack is supporting the dark appearance of the film. On the negative side I have to mention the quality of the colors. The color correction is not showing what HD can achieve today. The double DVD is packed with tons of extras. On some blockbuster DVD's you will not find that much. I very like the crew film that of the actors had captured. Good editing there too. All in all this double DVD is definitely worth the money.
