Where's my head?

A campy horror show about an insurance salesman who is befriended by a business man that has a ten year old secret. The businessman sends the insurance man to a headhunter to find a better job and that job entails – other work as assigned. The salesman spends the majority of the movie trying to understand why strange things are happening to him and winds up actually fulfilling his job function much to the dismay of the businessman who suffers for a job well done. The camera work and direction was surprisingly good. The dialog was austere and functional with a few giggles. The acting was pretty good. The special effects were in league with the films budget. The movie cover was nicely done and was one of the major reasons I picked up the DVD.

Ash from "Evil Dead" + "Office Space" = Headhunter!

Caught this film at a packed midnight screening last night. What a surprise! Solid acting in all, with a stand-out performance delivered by Benjamin Parrillo... playing Ben Caruso, the film's lead, a character who does so many wrong things, yet you laughingly cheer for him to somehow make it through... thus reminding me of the Ash character from Evil Dead but instead of the woods, Ben finds himself having to survive his ordeal on the graveyard shift at his new office job... While the humor isn't quite as over-the-top as Evil Dead, it still had me laughing out loud (along with the rest of the audience) quite a bit.

The gore FX are fun, with a cross between physical and CGI working quite well. There are definitely some gory spots that will have the fan's of blood & guts movies cheering.

The sound in Headhunter was especially good, with what seemed to be deep layers of sound fx. Normally indie films are far too simplistic, not layered like typical Hollywood films... But this film took it's sound serious, from cool creature voices to eerie sound fx, it delivered.

Between Parrillo's performance and Paul Tarantino's directing, Headhunter delivers the goods.

Festival Fun with Horror Done Right

I caught HEADHUNTER as a part of a local film festival called Danceswithfilms here in Santa Monica, California. The festival prides itself on showcasing films with no stars, and no known director. With any luck all involved in this project will never again be welcomed back to the festival, as the talent on display here is of the "up and coming" variety - destine for success of the name making kind.

The story is unique and compelling, focusing on Ben Caruso, a man in search of a better job. He hooks up with a corporate headhunter and soon finds himself in a top notch horror yarn that also deals out a fair amount of sly laughs. The direction has wisps of Kubrick mixed in with Raimi...which bodes well for this film's director (Paul Tarantino). With all of Hollywood remaking Japanese horror - this home grown effort seems like an ideal candidate for an upgrading to a larger budget, and a wider release.

A stand out moment is where an unsuspecting character has a run in with a garbage disposal gone mad. Though, my favorite was the last few seconds of the film where one of the characters is confronted with that nagging question: "Where is my head?" There were a few moments where things dragged a bit more than I'd like, and where the projects lower budget poked through an otherwise highly professional appearance, but those moments were few and far between. Acting was superb, especially Ben Parrillo who carries the film with ease. Scott Bushell, who plays Ben's friend in the film, is a stand out - bringing a palooka like character to life. British actor Mark Aiken is a star under Hollywood's collective nose. If he's not scooped up for larger studio roles there is just something wrong - casting directors take note.

Judging from the DVD assortment at my local rental house (Did anyone really like CABIN FEVER? And GHOSTWATCHER left me looking for a refund!), this effort deserves to leap successfully from festival circuit to rental and cable. Keep an eye out.
