  • Head Count could have been a generic and familiar supernatural horror, but writer Michael Nader and director Elle Callahan do an exceptional job of fleshing out the main characters and crafting smart, unsettling scares.

  • While Head Count shows potential and has some really good high level thoughts, there's just not enough scares to bring the film to life in a meaningful way.
