A Clear Winner at the Portland Film Festival (by adamkmeyer)
I watched The Head Hunter at the Portland film festival. I went in expecting a low-budget film and was impressed with the quality of the cinematography, the emotion the sole character and audio transfers to the audience, and the subtle humor and intrigue throughout. A fun film for sure. I'd recommend it to others who are interested in medieval action/adventure/horror films. Maybe we will be lucky enough for a sequel.
Don't be too quick to judge!! For a 30K budget I am blown away! (by mariostew)
I give it a 10 to balance out these 1 star ratings from people that found this movie and expected a game of thrones multi-million dollar production full of fight scenes. What you get in my eyes is different but just as gratifying. As many here have also agreed, this is a slow burn and a movie that you can throw your imagination into. The music, the story, acting and cinematography are simple and beautiful. Simple to me is a great achievment nowadays, stepping back and fully letting yourself be immersed in this vikings world, listening to the amazing soundtrack and the stunning visuals is <more>
enough to put a smile on your face. If you are a fan of art and movies you will find that this one will not disapoint. The effort and love that went into the making is noticeable on screen. You guys had me emotionally gripped the whole movie and the ending really cemented a beautiful journey. Thank you and please make more movies like this
Film Festival favorite in 2018 (by mikesteinheiser)
I had the pleasure of being at the 2018 Nightmares Film Festival and was at the premiere of The Headhunter.I was able to also catch 12-13 other features over the course of the festival and The Headhunter was by far my favorite.Christipher Rygh stars in the main role of The Headhunter himself and does an incredible job The film itself is firing on all cylinders,And has it all incredible acting,beautifully shot,well written and it's also the most original horror film I've seen in a very long timeThis film is very far from a mainstream so called horror film that will find itself playing <more>
at your local multiplex theater,however I cannot give this film enough praise. Do yourself a favor and search out The Headhunter,sit down with some friends and soak in the most original horror film in years that is The Headhunter and you can thank me when the final credits roll
What seems like a simple and straightforward revenge story turns into a surprising and uncanny tale of life and death, amidst an eerie atmosphere.Christopher Rygh's performance is astonishing. Even though the dialogue throughout the movie is scarce, he manages to convey all sorts of emotions through his acting, and turns this "one-character-film" into an amazing journey.In this movie, what can't be seen is often as important as what is shown on the screen. So keep your ears peeled and let yourself be drifted by the carefully designed sound and the superb music score. Allow <more>
yourself to let your imagination flow freely and you won't regret it.Last, but by no means least, the cinematography in this movie is simply beautiful, especially when it comes to lighting and camera shots. A note also to the fantastic decor and costumes, where no detail is too small to be dismissed.This movie may have been made with a modest budget and a small crew, but that doesn't mean its quality isn't top-notch.I watched The Head Hunter in this year's edition of Fantasporto - International Film Festival, and I loved it so much that on the last day of the festival, when the awarded movies were being shown again, I actually went in for a second screening I don't do that often .I strongly recommend it! Rating: 9/10
Wow. Low budget and STILL exceptional. Who'd a thunk it? (by S_Soma)
I'll make the important point before I lose you to my own verbosity.If you like stories of fantasy, mythic monsters, magic and thud-and-blunder barbarianism, then this is a must-see movie for you. While this genre is generally not a personal favorite of mine, I have to say this is still my favorite movie so far this year. It's not without the occasional low-budget blemish and I would have preferred a more upbeat ending as a matter of personal preference, but all things considered, THE HEAD HUNTER is simply superb. The title and poster artwork had me prepared for a real junker and I <more>
only watched it because I couldn't find anything else that looked more appealing. How nice to be pleasantly surprised for once.It is unclear where or when the story unfolds, but it is a time and place where monsters abound and dominion of the land by humankind is not yet determined. Our unnamed hero, a large, hairy brute, lives in his one room hovel in the forest on the edge of what little society exists. For company he has only his daughter and his horse, and is otherwise shunned.His occupation is simple and horrific. From time to time he hears a clarion call roll across the forest, and he puts on his armor and sets forth. As coming into direct contact with our hero is beneath those for whom he risks life and limb, he receives his assignments as a scroll wound round an arrow shot into a particular tree from a safe distance by his employers. The scroll describes the problem monster at hand which he is then tasked to destroy. There are many past arrows around this tree.But his battles come at terrible costs. As he returns from each clash carrying the heads of his vanquished foes, we see that he is always clawed and ripped to pieces, often only barely able to return home under his own power. To help him absorb these wounds, he produces his own putrescent concoction, a black and slimy mixture that he pushes into his wounds before passing out from the pain. When he comes to, he is healed enough to continue.Staggering physical wounds, unfortunately, are not the only price our hero pays for his gruesome occupation. One of the monsters manages to kill his daughter, and later, another his horse.And so our hero slogs from day to day, answering the clarion call now on foot and with no one awaiting him at home, waiting for the monster that killed his daughter to pass his way again that he might have his revenge.At length and at last, the hated and waited-for creature returns, and our hero has his day. Winning this battle, he returns home to add this new head to his collection. Ah, but only were things so easy.There is an accident, and the hero's container of healing salve is spilt upon the head of this latest monster while our hero is momentarily away, and when our hero returns inside, the head is gone.Apparently, the salve is a bit more powerful than even our hero knew. Dripping the few remaining drops upon a dead spider as an experiment, our hero sees the spider stir with life anew and realizes what has happened. Uttering the king of curses, our hero slams his fist down upon the moving spider and prepares to put an end to his daughter's killer yet again. But what he doesn't see in his haste is that the smashed spider gets up yet again. Our hero is going to have more trouble than he knows, and this resurrected monster will visit horrors upon him that he cannot yet imagine.Though I realize many will cringe at the comparison, THE HEAD HUNTER is stylistically not entirely unlike THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA with Spencer Tracy. There are only 3 people in the entire movie: the hero, the daughter, and a knight that we only see for a few seconds in the distance. The only dialogue is a handful of words spoken by the hero either to himself or to his daughter already in her grave. The entire movie is accomplished as a collection of wordless actions. Everything the movie has to say is said by what happens. This is done extremely well and THE HEAD HUNTER is so full of grit and ambience that it collects in a puddle on the floor beneath your screen.One aspect of the movie that I found especially enjoyable was how artfully it concealed its low-budget realities. In most circumstances you have to watch very closely to see any low-budget tells. Occasionally, for example, the hero bumps against one of the collected heads of the monsters and it wiggles just enough that we see it's a rubber cast.To save money, the only battle we actually see is where the hero is struggling with the resurrected monster. In all other cases the battles with the monsters happen offscreen, a money-saving device. The hero suits up and heads out to do battle and the next thing we see is the aftermath and our hero badly torn up as a result of the battle. But all of this is done so well and with so much atmosphere that we don't feel cheated as viewers. We may not get to see everything but everything we DO get to see is extremely well done.As I have often mentioned before in other reviews, I rate movies on a relativistic scale: how does a movie rate against other, similar movies within its genre and how does it compare against the movie it was obviously trying to be. I gave THE HEAD HUNTER a 9/10 only because of its few execution mistakes. If not for those, I would have given it a 10 out of 10. The only thing I actively didn't like about the movie was the ending. It was completely legitimate and not at all a cop out and was completely in keeping with the rest of the movie. I would just have liked something a bit more upbeat.See what you think.
I loved this film. An absolute clinic in "show, don't tell". A slow burn for sure. Beautiful locations and atmosphere.
Don't read the reviews, just see it for yourself! (by jereniemonen)
Gotta love these IMDb reviews from people who know nothing and rate every Marvel movie 10/10. "nO mOnStEr FiGhTs So I gIvE 1/10". You can't expect stuff like that from a low budget film like this. This film was unique, it had cool landscapes, great cinematography and ending that I wasn't expecting. I would love to see more of this type of dark medieval movies in the future but with bigger budget. This was a very small-scale film. There's just 1 actor, very little dialogue and you don't actually see him fight the monsters, only the aftermath. For a low budget movie <more>
this didn't look that cheap though. I loved the look of the setting, gloomy atmosphere and the monsters heads looked really good.
This movie is cool, just don't go in expecting full blown gory action horror - it's not that at all. It's way more of a slow burn, suspense film. So if that's your thing you'll dig it. Filmmakers did a great job building a gothic, medieval world I hadn't seen on film before. Cinematography and story craft is on point.
Worth the wait (by filmlvr89)
I'll be honest, this film was a little slow at first but it had my attention the entire time and I thought the ending was 100% worth the wait. My fav part was the spider scene
