Without script or direction, the film meanders dangerously, leaving long stretches of emptiness between the more effective scare moments.

It's the movie's seeming lack of structure that keeps us off-guard, and that's what makes the whole messy enterprise so genially compelling.

Something [that] is both impressive and thrifty is Jay and Mark Duplass' Baghead, unquestionably the most inventive horror film in years -- one that puts character first and genre expectations last.

...an intriguing premise that's employed to predictably subdued effect by the Duplass brothers...

There are some humorous and touching moments in Baghead, but the actors lack the finesse needed to make us really feel for their characters.

The Duplass brothers waste a perfectly good porno premise by getting meta on our asses

That documentary-like naturalism might be a bit much for some viewers, but Baghead is still an intriguing film, as the Duplass brothers construct genuine suspense while toying with their audience's expectations.

Baghead delivers more scares with its paper masked stalker than Jason and Michael Myers combined in their respective reboots.

Just when you think the film is about to zig, it zags and heads another direction. And it's smart enough to cut things short before it wears out its welcome and before it gets too predictable.

The plot is tired, the actors are not much good, the situation is way too familiar, there is no humor or fright in sight.

Alternately funny and scary, 'Baghead' suggests that 'The Blair Witch Project' may be as responsible for mumblecore as any of the self-consciously anti-commercial movies that usually are credited with jump-starting the trend.
September 18, 2008
The truth eventually comes out, as it must, and it's not exactly a stunner.
September 11, 2008
I want to shout, not mumble, that the Duplasses are a couple of the most promising filmmakers out there.
