Headless Review


In this "lost slasher film from 1978," a masked killer wages an unrelenting spree of murder, cannibalism...

Headless (2015) is an American horror movie that delivered more than I expected. Director Arthur Cullipher (Found (2012), Psycho Street (2011), Come (2009)) did an incredible job bringing us this low budget gory movie. Arthur does not have much experience in the movie industry as this is his third movie to direct. He has great potential, and I truly cannot wait to see more movies from him. I was hooked from the first few minutes of the movie to the very ending. It contains sickening stomach scenes that might make you want to puke or squirm. The movie was twisted in so many ways, brutal, disturbing, contained barrels of blood and contained dismemberment of body parts. This movie was made for horror fans who love a good gorefest movie.

Headless is about a crazed killer with a skull face in 1978 that gets pleasure by killing females in the most brutal way possible at the time of killing. The killer (Shane Beasley - Found (2012), Unwelcome (2014), Lethal Obsession (2010)) brutally slices them and hacks their body to fill his void. Skullboy/The Killer Child (Kaden Miller) is a little boy that we see throughout the film. Skullboy adds loads of creepiness to the movie and somehow acts as the killer subconscious by leading the killer to kill the people he kills. We start to learn about the killers past as the movie progresses, and it slowly reveals why the killer is a crazed person. Watch this movie to see what becomes of this crazed killer.

The movie is a low-budget film, but it pulled off one heck of a job with such a small budget - better than most high-end movies I have seen lately. I was a bit nauseated/sick to my stomach after seeing this flick. The actors did a great job with their roles as it was as realistic as it can get. The lighting effects, sets, and cinematography was on point. I will watch this movie again with my horror friends and family when they visit.
