The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Director: Anthony Spadaccini
Cast: Paul McCloskey, Brinke Stevens, Michael Manfredo Jr., Mark Marcarian, Barbara Lessin, Jeremy Bishop, Mark Cray
Serial killer Wayne Montgomery committed 41 murders between 1979 and 2007, leaving behind an extensive library of his life's work. Now, a new generation carries on Wayne's legacy in a terrifying world where rules do not apply. Take a trip through the mind of one of history's most prolific serial killers - and his devoted followers who are out for blood.
"Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley" is the fourth film in the "Head Cases" series. This one looks to finally put the story of Wayne Montgomery to rest for once and for all. I am not going to go into any major details about what happens in the film but I will tell you I have had a copy of the film for a bit and only now have I had the chance to sit down and watch it but it was well worth the wait. This is easily the best of the bunch and the most realistic of them all. The film and its characters get inside your head and under your skin right from the start and you are left thinking about the film long after it is over, and double checking to see if your doors are locked as well. Yes, the film is that effective.
The film covers pretty much the first three films but I urge everyone to see out HEAD CASES, THE RITUAL and POST-MORTEM and see them as well, before if possible. Because this film is so thorough you probably do not need to see the others before seeing this one but I highly recommend doing so since they too are terrific films as well. There is a lot to like here, shot as if it was a documentary the film seems so real you keep having to remind yourself that these are actors. And speaking of actors, the cast which includes, Paul McCloskey, Brinke Stevens, Michael Manfredo Jr., Mark Marcarian, Barbara Lessin, Jeremy Bishop and Mark Cray are all incredibly believable, this was an outstanding job from everyone involved.
It's obvious by now that "Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley" is not going to be for everyone. If you get offended or upset easily then I recommend not watching this but if you like a good story about serial killers then this is a must see, must own when it makes its way to DVD. You can rent and own the digital copy now for a limited time only HERE. You can also keep up with the film's progress but visiting its Facebook page HERE.
"Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley" is a disturbing piece of cinema that will shock, surprise and make your skin crawl. When it comes to filmmaking this is about as good as it gets. I applaud Director, Anthony Spadaccini and his entire cast and crew for doing such a magnificent job.
