Critic Reviews for Headspace

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

  • Ultimately fairly routine material, but it's hard to knock a film that includes among its cast such familiar faces as Olivia Hussey, Sean Young, William Atherton, Dee Wallace Stone and (the apparently obligatory for the genre) Udo Kier.

    Mar 17, 2006
  • There are good ideas pulsing through Andrew van den Houten's horror flick, but once the script turns nasty, things fall apart -- and not just literally.

    Feb 17, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • A small horror film with all the necessary gore and beasties and gratuitous nudity that this not-very-demanding genre demands.

    Feb 15, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • Impossível compreender como tantos atores veteranos puderam aceitar participar de um projeto sem potencial dirigido por um estreante sem talento.

    Nov 18, 2006 | Rating: 1/5
  • There is such a level of pretension throughout the movie that it was hard to watch without rolling your eyes at every other scene.

  • A fairly intelligent, creepy, and well-crafted piece of indie moviemaking.

    A good companion to The Jacket and Jacob's Ladder.

    ingenius ideas about long haired bros being tormented by devils or demons and never being listened to. this film makes you feel isolated, unwanted and ineffective. just an average day then... watch it after a night on the rum and it'll be your friend in a narcissistic way

    Ambitious, original and so boring that you'd rather hang yourself than watch it again. <b>Variety</b> | Ronnie Scheib <i>Any baby boomers who wander into Headspace might be forgiven their momentary panic as they are suddenly acid-flashed back to the psychedelic mediocrity of their youth. Jethro Senger's attempt to capture the global mindset of ravers, largely through visual mimicry -- kaleidoscopes, anyone? -- is at best a mixed bag of old tricks.</i>

    Great development, poor pay-off. It had me until the end which falls into that oh-so-typical "surprise" ending.
