Editorial Reviews

When Alex (Christopher Denham, Shutter Island) encounters a mysterious stranger, he begins to get smarter each day. It's not long before he realizes that his new intellect comes with deadly side effects. Headaches and visions plague him at every step. Soon, savage unexplainable murders are linked to him. Now, it's a race against time as Alex discovers that the source of this evil may not be human and the key to this mystery may be in his own past. His journey in this psychological horror is aided by: Olivia Hussey (Stephen King's IT), Dee Wallace Stone (Cujo), Udo Kier (Blade), Sean Young (Blade Runner), William Atherton (Ghostbusters), Mark Margolis (Black Swan), Paul Sparks (HBO's Boardwalk Empire), and Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman).

By Ken Fontenot VINE VOICE on October 16, 2006
Format: DVD
For a film that boasts "gore and beasties and gratuitous nudity" and revealing that "the scariest place on earth is between our own ears," "Headspace" falls short of its proclamations. It attempts to be an intelligent thriller that relies more on the "what if?" factor than anything else. Sure, there are a couple of reasonably gory moments in the film, but nothing worthy of the praises or awards it features on its DVD case. The gratuitous nudity is late night Cinemax-worthy, but nothing to write home about.

The story involves the splitting of two young brothers by a seemingly uncaring father after the violent death of their mother. One boy has become super intelligent and is the focus of this tale, while the other is slowly revealed through flashbacks in the smart brother's mind. Our hero begins to have vicious headaches and horrible nightmares that eventually put him in the hospital. Unable to diagnose him, his doctor releases him into the care of a psychiatrist who attempts to figure out what's going on in his head. As the days go by, however, the body count grows. Eventually, the boy figures out what's really happening in his mind and attempts to struggle with his demons both inside and outside of his brain.

The story does have a nice twist to it involving a key character in the story, but I don't want to give away any more information. Had a little more time been spent on this tale, and less emphasis on tauting the gore, this could have been a wonderful, suspenseful tale. Instead, we get a movie that attempts to be both intelligent and gory at the same time and fails at both.

The film opens with young Harry's (Daniel Manche) birthday. It is ruined by his mother's (Sean Young) non-cocaine related nosebleed (the worse kind). Dad blows off mom's head, doesn't go to jail and then we see Alex (Christopher Denham), Harry's younger brother at the age of 25. Both have demonic visions as children.

Alex takes aspirin for his migraines as if he doesn't have any stomach lining. He is smart, but works as a house sitter and is not very good at it as he leaves the door open and passes out. Alex is obsessed with the chess guy in the park as his mental condition has sparked the interest of local doctors.

The film blends the supernatural with the real world and does so that it remains a mystery. The low budget aspect (note Dee Wallace is in it) prevented them from doing anything constructive or interesting with Alex's intellect other than learn to play chess. The guy could memorize any book at a glance and all he wants to do is play chess...hey, I got an idea, how about working on your own migraines.

Even though they attempted to develop Alex's character, I never got attached to him. When things did happen, they did so in a low budget, made-for-TV type fashion. 2 1/2 stars

For a low budget indie, HEADSPACE isn't all that bad..unfortunately, it's not all that good either...but it maintained my interest and relies on atmospheric spookiness most of the time with a few scenes of gory terror. Although it's plot is sometimes nebulous, it is a psychological thriller focusing on "links" between our world and the "netherworld." Christopher Denham is very good as Alex, a young man plagued with horrific visions, headaches and the incredible gift of an almost photographic memory. His search to find out what's wrong with him leads him to a superior chess player, a sympathetic psychiatrist AND murderous demons.

Veteran performers Olivia Hussey, William Atherton, Udo Keir, Dee Wallace Stone and Mark Margolis are along for the ride and ultimately contribute to a better than average if not great thriller.

This one poses the question: what if the proverbial 70% of our mind's potential were unlocked? Maybe unleashed would be a better word. An interesting directorial vision, a provocative premise and a tried and true genre cast make Headspace the kind of film you'll want to see more than once. Especially when it gets into your head. Highly recommended.

The family dog is mutilated. The family is in danger so they jump into their truck to escape and it won't start. Two horror movie cliches within the first 5 minutes of the movie. I should have just turned it off and saved my time.

Alex is a 25 year old whose intellect begins to grow by leaps and bounds. He can read entire books in seconds and remember everything he's read. He teaches himself to be a chess master in a matter of days. He also sees creatures in his dreams that begin to come to life, murdering people Alex has come into contact with. He goes to friends and doctors searching for answers to what is happening to him.

The box made Head Space sound interesting but it wasn't. This was 90 turgid minutes of middling acting and bad plotting. The makeup on the creatures was ok. This movie wasn't exciting, suspenseful or scary.
