Seriously creepy and deeply unnerving, HEAD TRAUMA explores the uncomfortable notion that just because a person may be paranoid, doesn't necessarily mean that someone - or something - is not actually out to get them. In this engrossing chiller, drifter George Walker returns after many years to stake a claim on his deceased grandmother's abandoned house. Struggling to build some semblance of a normal life for himself, George tries to clean up the place by day. But his nights are uneasy and plagued by troubling visions of a mysterious hooded figure. Despite his best efforts, things grow worse as the house is condemned and his nightmares refuse to remain in the dark.
Propelled by a wildly implosive lead performance by Vince Mola, who alternates between tenderly sympathetic and bullishly repellent, HEAD TRAUMA is the latest unsettling entry in the revitalized independent horror scene. Writer / Director Lance Weiler and co-writer Brian Majeska have crafted a film that is difficult to pin down, making every twist a slippery and unexpected surprise. Combining much of the spooky imagery from the recent Japanese horror explosion with a distinctly 70's horror feel, HEAD TRAUMA is a disturbing look into the dark corners of American small-town life.
