Both Strong and Weak Points
When it comes to grading this movie, there are stark contrasts because it has some very strong points as well as weak ones. As far as overall story and originality is concerned, this could be one of the better horror movies to come out in the past decade. The problem for me was that this movie has some of the weakest dialog I’ve seen in a film. Conversations between characters is very unnatural and at times you feel as if the actors may have skipped over a few lines. The part in the movie when the Russian psychiatrist explains to Alex what he is and what is happening to him is the only exception to this. I wouldn’t say that this ruins the movie seeing as how the story is so intriguing, but having such a strong concept coupled with weak dialog would make this movie average at best.
If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth checking out, just don’t expect anything profound coming from the mouths of the actors.
Not as stimulating as one would like.
Alex (Christopher Denham) is a young man who seems to have it all. He has an encounter with Harry (Erick Kastel), a painter and chess player, one day, and this seems to be a catalyst for what follows. Alex discovers that his intellect is now growing in leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, he’s attracted some sort of otherworldly monster that goes around slaughtering people who he knows. Various characters in the medical profession try to help him out, but the strain starts to get to him.
It’s a pity, really. At first glance this would seem to be something fairly original for a modern fright flick. But the filmmakers don’t develop the story in particularly interesting ways. While a viewer may keep watching for the sake of seeing where things are headed, the scenario is too predictable a little too often. Genre fans may be happy with the practical gore effects, such as the best effect in the movie, which actually occurs awfully early. The creatures themselves are amusingly designed, and director Andrew van den Houten makes this a very sober affair, with very little in the way of humor.
You might be drawn to this one due to the big names attached: Olivia Hussey (“Black Christmas” ’74), William Atherton (“Ghost Busters”), filmmaker / actor Larry Fessenden (“The Last Winter”), Dee Wallace (“The Howling”), Udo Kier (“Blood for Dracula”), Mark Margolis (‘Better Call Saul’), and Sean Young (“Blade Runner”). But most of them were hired clearly just for the name value, as they get precious little to do. Atherton was also a co-producer; Hussey’s daughter India Eisley and husband David Glen Eisley turn up as well. It’s up to young Denham to carry the movie, which he does in a capable enough fashion.
“Headspace” is just entertaining enough and intriguing enough to maintain some interest, but this viewer can’t help but feel that it’s a classic case of wasted potential. The ending is especially unsatisfying.
