Head Count

Critics Consensus

Head Count doesn't wrack up enough punchy scares to be an unqualified success as a horror outing, but an engaging cast and textured characters make it a refreshing genre exercise with something on its mind.

  • Favoring psychological chills over blood-soaked mayhem, Callahan's impressively crafted debut nods to recent horror classics while displaying an eminently distinctive vision of its own.

  • Once the Hisje begins working its way through these kids - needing to take five souls before it can be satisfied - "Head Count" becomes a solidly made, often quite scary horror picture.

    June 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's an admirably disciplined film with committed performances by actors playing characters more complicated than the usual horror casualty list.

  • A unique and dynamic psychological horror movie... I am excited to see what's next from [writer and director Elle Callahan].

    October 27, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • All that said, Head Count is an impressive debut. Elle Callahan has crafted a minimalist, modern age ghost story that should be told in hushed whispers around the campfire.

    June 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Here the atmosphere works, the majority of the characters work well with each other and with the story, the story is fairly simple thus easy to follow, and the tension builds up until the reveal.
