Critic Reviews for Headspace

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Ultimately fairly routine material, but it's hard to knock a film that includes among its cast such familiar faces as Olivia Hussey, Sean Young, William Atherton, Dee Wallace Stone and (the apparently obligatory for the genre) Udo Kier.

There are good ideas pulsing through Andrew van den Houten's horror flick, but once the script turns nasty, things fall apart -- and not just literally.

February 17, 2006 | Rating: 2/4

A small horror film with all the necessary gore and beasties and gratuitous nudity that this not-very-demanding genre demands.

February 15, 2006 | Rating: 3/5

Impossível compreender como tantos atores veteranos puderam aceitar participar de um projeto sem potencial dirigido por um estreante sem talento.

November 18, 2006 | Rating: 1/5

There is such a level of pretension throughout the movie that it was hard to watch without rolling your eyes at every other scene.

A fairly intelligent, creepy, and well-crafted piece of indie moviemaking.

Audience Reviews for Headspace


Great development, poor pay-off. It had me until the end which falls into that oh-so-typical "surprise" ending.

Very nice to see some original horror ideas getting toyed with. Good performance by the lead.
