Audience Reviews for Head of the Family

Pretty fun cast and story. Great old skool makeup effects and b movie dialog. Doesn't take itself seriously and fits in up there with Jeffery Combs type greatness.

Curtis Lilly

Super Reviewer

Not a fan of the comedy/horror genre; just two things that shouldn't be put together. This did remind me of movies I used to see at the drive-in back in the late 70's and early 80's. B-movie fare that had little in the way of effects. Acting is poor. Story is not interesting enough and the lack of effects doesn't help. Lots of nudity though.

A small-town con-man happens upon the terrible secret of the local family of wealthy deformed eccentrics. He attempts to blackmail the family only to discover the one family member who doesnt leave the home is a highly-intelligent gigantic head for whom his job of choice is medical torture. Very funny and stars Alexandra Quinn.
