Editorial Reviews

From the mind of horror author Edward Lee, comes this horrifying tale of grueling revenge
and backwoods terror! Stewart Cummings
(Jake Suffian), a government agent playing both sides of the law, finds himself in the nightmarish crossfire of a bloody family
vendetta. Forced to delve deep into a series of gruesome murders, Cummings encounters the most twisted method of revenge
ever conceived by man: the header.
What s a header? Only redneck Travis Tuckton
(Elliot V. Kotek) and his evil grandpappy
knows for sure... and once YOU learn the shocking answer, you may never be the same. Get ready for the acclaimed horror film that may be the ultimate in violence and gore! HEADER is a film of unrelenting, twisted terror !

SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) Transfer - English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo - Interview Featurettes with Cast and Crew - Original Promotional Trailers

Some scenes made me cringe and giggle at the same time.

This film is one of the most twisted and horrifying thrillers I've ever seen.

Ah, I can't tell you what a header is, because if you're interested in this film, you'll have to see yourself. But when you find out, guaranteed you will be repulsed, BIG time. If not, then please seek help.

We have a Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms agent who is working both sides of the law because his wife is sick & her prescriptions cost WAY too much. So of course, because he loves her, Agent Cummings does what he has to do to get by.

We have a man who just got out of jail, & heads on back to live with his legless grandpappy, who makes shoes, and there he finds out what a header is. The most I can tell you is it's "The worst thing someone can do to somebody". At least that's how grandpappy describes it. It's a form of revenge, although how it was determined to be a viable revenge method is beyond me.

Of course, as the films goes on, folks begin to cross paths & greed kicks in and there's lots of header action going on too, so things get rather ugly & there's an ending that's completely unexpected. Kind of "when in Rome, do as the Romans". Ick.

Reminds me a bit of 70's flicks, maybe grindhouse type stuff, with lots of hillbillies & gore & uh, well, sex, I guess you could say, so if you enjoy this type of stuff then you'll probably like it. Probably not recommended for fans of the mainstream, though. 4 out of 5.

After seeing a horror flick like this, I now know that this will be brought up time and time again when talking about a messed-up film. I've seen many horror flicks way more gorier than this one, but the story that this flick is about rates up there high on the SICK-O-METER!!! On some parts in this film, I felt like I was committing a crime simply because I was watching it haha. What else is next?....seriously! I can definitely see this become a cult classic. I know folks throw those two words around a lot, but I mean it! With what this story is about, the amount of gore depicted in this flick, matches evenly. Even a gorehound like me knows when to be smart on how much gore needs to be thrown around. It all depends on what the story is about. 'Header', in my opinion, is definitely a video nasty!

Edward Lee has long been my favorite author and this movie proves why! King is a puss comparatively!no one had the balls to even touch this movie and i know the punks will come out of the woodworks to challenge me i dont care you will all be taken to task by me! this is the most true to source film i have seen in a very long time! Everyone involved with this film deserves NOTHING but respect!It is obviously a labor of love for all involved and from the sound design to the actors to the gore it is TOP NOTCH! This is not for everyone nor should it be. If you dont like gore if you dont like objectionable/offensive subject matter this will not be for you.Leave now. For those of you who are still reading if you love and are familliar with the small press work of ED LEE this is what you(and I) have been waiting for!I will not give away the story i will say that i am not disappointed at all!All of my expectations were met and exceeded!Rob Zombie wishes he could do this, but he cant and never will!Fulci would be proud!If you dont know who FULCI is do some research and learn what real HORROR is you arent ready for this! I would simply offer my thanks and utmost respect to all involved! I SAY THANK YOU FOR SHOWING PEOPLE HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE!!!!!!!!!!

As a long-time lover and collector of Indie and foreign horror films, I thought I'd seen it all. Delightfully, I was wrong! This movie starts with a hard punch to your sensibilities and then never let's up until the jaw-dropping, eye-bugging end.
Creepy, horrific, disgusting and totally disturbed-everything a horror movie should be!
Well acted, beautifully shot, and with a haunting music score-you'll never forget Header!!!

Set in the backwoods, this tale of extreme violence follows an ATF agent on the take. Watch it and find out what a header is!
The acting is sub par, and this is a low budget movie, but is has a certain charm, I really enjoyed it.

This movie rocked. It's EXACTLY like the book. Low budget, hardcore and horrific. IT'S NOT the typical crap slasher horror or torture horror the kids are accustomed to these days. Instead this pays tribute to the grindhouse horror flicks I grew up on. Header is now one of my favorites. Just wait. this thing is going to be a classic someday. I totally recommend buying this movie if you're into seeing some twisted sexual violence sprinkled throughout one hell of a plot line. It's like Deliverance meets CSI. It's like an unrated Russ Meyer's movie but instead of breasts, you get Headers. This is what Midnight movies were all about. Thank God someone had the balls to make the best Edward Lee story into a movie. So many adaptations suck, but this one stayed true to the source.

Highly recommended.

Gay Horror? What's good? What's a good idea for something to come?
It's a dubious category you have proposed because so much Horror deals with subversion of family/gender/male-female dynamics and sexual tensions. Thus Horror is Queer (in the politicised sense of the word) altho' the fanboys might not be happy about it... interesting that recent viewer surveys... Read More
