Headless: Very impressive
14 February 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Headless is another hyper low budget indie horror feature, this one however blew me away.

It tells the story of a student researching the life, times and death of an accused witch who died in the same manner as her sister. During the investigation she comes across a small religious group who may be the key to everything.

For a start the movie is beautiful, it's perfectly shot and highly original. The movie is well written with real depth and I walked away from this very impressed.

The sad thing is at time of writing this has less than 100 views from the IMDB community and I think that's a travesty. It's movies like this that need more recognition.

If you're seeking a gory fast paced actiony horror then this isn't for you. If however you like your movies smart, well paced and inventive then Headless is a sure fire hit for you.

Standing ovation for everyone involved, great film.

The Good:

Well shot

Very original

The Bad:

Could have done with being a tad longer, 71 minutes is very short

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Considering 80% of Americans are Christian it always shocks me that most representations of Christians in the movies are negative.

The religious are irrational so don't expect the same level of reasoning
