Headless is a Demented, Twisted, Sick, Depraved Skull-F**k of a Slasher Film
23 August 2015 | by biscutbuu69See all my reviews

A Exploitation Slasher film from 2015 and tonight's movie is 'Headless'

In this "lost slasher film from 1978," a masked killer wages an unrelenting spree of murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia. But when his tortured past comes back to haunt him, he plunges to even greater depths of madness and depravity, consuming the lives of a young woman and those she holds dear.

So the film has a very similar vibe to Ryan Nicholson's 'Gutterballs', its got the 70s/80s slasher look but it is obvious that the film was shot digitally and not on actual film which is a shame. It's got the good gore effects the not so good acting and okay writing. The characters are decent not complex but its a slasher film so it doesn't matter. The killer is cool and brutal like BBK in 'Gutterballs'. Everything from a technical stand point is good lighting, camera-work, sound mix, editing, etc. The film has some surreal moments that I honestly think are reminiscent of Argento's work. The killers house is very 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre'-esque and creepy his back-story is also one that reminded me of Frank from 'Maniac'. His house also reminds me of Frank's apartment in 'Maniac', messy and full of creepy stuff. The pacing is okay at least it keeps you interested in what is going on in the story. Its obvious that this film was not just made to cash in on the moderate success of Found or just to be a movie within the movie It was made because genuine interest in the source material and out of love for the slasher genre.

On the gore meter from one to ten one being something like 'Nosferatu' ten being something like 'Braindead' Headless is a 6 lots of blood, decapitation and necrophilia!

Its not the best slasher or horror sub-genre tribute film ever but its still pretty good. A very above average modern tribute to a age old genre. But much like 'Gutterballs' its not for everyone though 4.5/5 I can recommend it somewhat. Now Lets hope for a Headless part 2
