Classic Scifi/Horror Film!!!
19 July 2013 | by sportsbros808See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for low budget horror movies so Headsome is right up my alley. To me low budget doesn't mean bad. It just means that the filmmaker makes the most with what he or she has. Director/producer Pavel Nikolajev has created a great film with not a very big budget.

The main story of this film is about twin brothers. Both brothers are played flawlessly by William Haze. But these are not just any brothers, they are both SCIENTISTS! One is a little more shady than the other one but you would expect that, right?

After one brother sufferers a horrible accident the other does what any good brother would do: he decapitates his brother and keeps the head alive by attaching it to a robotic contraption that looks like a nightstand with some robotic arms attached to it.

I don't want to give too much away but the storyline is actually pretty good and it flows nicely.

The special effects are very well done, too. I have heard that the director actually built the robotic contraption that holds the severed head himself. That is truly DIY filmmaking. The film cuts back and forth between shots of the live actors head on the contraption and an obvious dummy head but it doesn't detract too much from the experience.

Overall Headsome is a great representation of the classic low budget scifi/horror film.
