Cult horror producer-director Charles Band presents another round of his patented, low-budget weirdness with the campy horror flick Skull Heads. When an eccentric clan living in virtual isolation in an Italian castle finds their family togetherness threatened by the arrival of three mysterious strangers, they summon up some supernatural protectors to fend off the barbarian invasions. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi
Head of the Family
This well-written, entertainingly tasteless tongue-in-cheek horror film from Full Moon Pictures concerns Lance (Blake Bailey) a wimpy diner owner who is being shaken down by a crass, loutish biker named Howie (Gordon Jennison). Lance and Howie's wife Loretta (Jacqueline Lovell) are having an affair on the side and want to get rid of Howie for good. The opportunity presents itself when, on their way home from a Lover's Lane tryst, they notice a strategically placed detour sign leading to the Stackpoole house. It turns out that the Stackpooles are a family of quadruplet freaks, with three of them telepathically ruled by the fourth. Retarded Otis (Bob Schott) is the muscle; bug-eyed Wheeler (James Jones) is the eyes and ears; gorgeous Ernestine (Dianne Colazzo) is the seductress; and Myron (J.W. Perra) -- a giant head strapped to a wheelchair -- is the "brains" of the operation. Myron wants to be more than just a talking head, so he waylays passersby and does brain experiments on them, keeping the lobotomized zombies in a basement dungeon. The best thing about the film is its appealing young cast, led by Lovell, who has great comic timing and funny delivery to go along with her oft-displayed body. As Myron, Perra's dry, ornery style is a perfect antidote to the usual over-the-top silliness of many similar villains. Benjamin Carr's script is delightfully (and surprisingly) sleazy, lending the air of a good old-fashioned 42nd Street grindhouse film to the proceedings. A sick treat for fans of unusual horror, Head of the Family is a worthwhile rental. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
An enthusiastically brain-damaged outing from Charles Band's prolific B-Movie outfit Full Moon Entertainment, this cult-move manqué, directed by Oingo Boingo co-founder Richard Elfman (brother of composer Danny Elfman) is weird even by Full Moon's unique standards. The demented plot begins with a modern-day Bowery Boys-type bunch foiling a street gang's robbery scheme only to bring down the wrath of hilariously butch crime boss "Big Mo" (Meg Foster, complete with Elvis pompadour), who commands her chief axe-man to rub them out. Thanks to the voodoo skills of newsstand vendor Sumatra (Julius Harris), the three boys' severed heads are reanimated (it is never specified why this is all Sumatra could salvage) as tiny airborne mini-zombies with assorted super-powers. This leads to the inevitable blow-out between the Heads and Big Mo's legions, as well as one of the weirdest romantic subplots on record. Initially an abortive bid for midnight-movie infamy (much like the director's Forbidden Zone), this wacko twist on the basic comic-book superhero scenario has a playful nature that distances it from cult-horror territory but gives it a certain kooky charm; it features a main-title theme by the director's big-shot brother. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
