Five twenty-somethings go for a weekend camping trip in remote New England, only to discover that the land on which they’re staying was the site of a brutal mass murder years ago.
Puppets, although not a common thread in the fabric of Horror cinema has had its impact with contributions from Full Moon. Now Terror Films is venturing into the strange and dark comedic theme with the upcoming release, Head.
In Head, Director, writer Jon Bristol created a world of puppets with human nature. The threats and cliche common with slashers are a major factor in Bristol’s film. Head pays homage to the plot that incorporates a group of persons camping at a desolated locale. What is the threat in this film? A blood-thirsty serial killer. This is an interesting concept.
Head circulated in film festivals over the past two years receiving selections and awards. This film may not appeal to this writer’s palate of Horror, but upon its release Head will certainly wow audiences.
Below is an excerpt from the press release:
Unlike the soon to be released Happy Time Murders, there are no signs of humans in HEAD, only puppets. Walking, talking, sex having, shit talking puppets – one by one, they are being murdered by a crazed killer. And as the tag line in the official poster and trailer for HEAD proclaims – “Ain’t Nothing Happy About Dead Puppets.”
