By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Jan. 26 2015
Format: DVD
The film opens with young Harry's (Daniel Manche) birthday. It is ruined by his mother's (Sean Young) non-cocaine related nosebleed (the worse kind). Dad blows off mom's head, doesn't go to jail and then we see Alex (Christopher Denham), Harry's younger brother at the age of 25. Both have demonic visions as children.

Alex takes aspirin for his migraines as if he doesn't have any stomach lining. He is smart, but works as a house sitter and is not very good at it as he leaves the door open and passes out. Alex is obsessed with the chess guy in the park as his mental condition has sparked the interest of local doctors.

The film blends the supernatural with the real world and does so that it remains a mystery. The low budget aspect (note Dee Wallace is in it) prevented them from doing anything constructive or interesting with Alex's intellect other than learn to play chess. The guy could memorize any book at a glance and all he wants to do is play chess...hey, I got an idea, how about working on your own migraines.

Even though they attempted to develop Alex's character, I never got attached to him. When things did happen, they did so in a low budget, made-for-TV type fashion. 2 1/2 stars

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Pollyanna McIntosh of "The Woman")

Modest Horror Oct. 16 2006
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For a film that boasts "gore and beasties and gratuitous nudity" and revealing that "the scariest place on earth is between our own ears," "Headspace" falls short of its proclamations. It attempts to be an intelligent thriller that relies more on the "what if?" factor than anything else. Sure, there are a couple of reasonably gory moments in the film, but nothing worthy of the praises or awards it features on its DVD case. The gratuitous nudity is late night Cinemax-worthy, but nothing to write home about.

The story involves the splitting of two young brothers by a seemingly uncaring father after the violent death of their mother. One boy has become super intelligent and is the focus of this tale, while the other is slowly revealed through flashbacks in the smart brother's mind. Our hero begins to have vicious headaches and horrible nightmares that eventually put him in the hospital. Unable to diagnose him, his doctor releases him into the care of a psychiatrist who attempts to figure out what's going on in his head. As the days go by, however, the body count grows. Eventually, the boy figures out what's really happening in his mind and attempts to struggle with his demons both inside and outside of his brain.

The story does have a nice twist to it involving a key character in the story, but I don't want to give away any more information. Had a little more time been spent on this tale, and less emphasis on tauting the gore, this could have been a wonderful, suspenseful tale. Instead, we get a movie that attempts to be both intelligent and gory at the same time and fails at both.

The acting is pretty good, but the bulk of the cast is towed along by former scream queen Dee Wallace Stone, ex-Juliet Olivia Hussey, the capable William Atherton, and the still lovely Sean Young. The rest of the cast is made up of newcomers.

The creatures in this feature are okay, but they do look somewhat like a cross between a pig and the vampire bat that Gary Oldman turns into in "Bram Stoker's Dracula."

In short, I'd consider this flick a one-time rental. It doesn't add or take away from the horror genre, but the DVD case will mislead you to believe so.

HOW ABOUT A NICE GAME OF CHESS? Sept. 5 2014

CEREBRAL HORROR Oct. 11 2006
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
For a low budget indie, HEADSPACE isn't all that bad..unfortunately, it's not all that good either...but it maintained my interest and relies on atmospheric spookiness most of the time with a few scenes of gory terror. Although it's plot is sometimes nebulous, it is a psychological thriller focusing on "links" between our world and the "netherworld." Christopher Denham is very good as Alex, a young man plagued with horrific visions, headaches and the incredible gift of an almost photographic memory. His search to find out what's wrong with him leads him to a superior chess player, a sympathetic psychiatrist AND murderous demons.

Veteran performers Olivia Hussey, William Atherton, Udo Keir, Dee Wallace Stone and Mark Margolis are along for the ride and ultimately contribute to a better than average if not great thriller.

No suspense, no scares, lots of cliches Dec 29 2007
By Ragnar65 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The family dog is mutilated. The family is in danger so they jump into their truck to escape and it won't start. Two horror movie cliches within the first 5 minutes of the movie. I should have just turned it off and saved my time.

Alex is a 25 year old whose intellect begins to grow by leaps and bounds. He can read entire books in seconds and remember everything he's read. He teaches himself to be a chess master in a matter of days. He also sees creatures in his dreams that begin to come to life, murdering people Alex has come into contact with. He goes to friends and doctors searching for answers to what is happening to him.

The box made Head Space sound interesting but it wasn't. This was 90 turgid minutes of middling acting and bad plotting. The makeup on the creatures was ok. This movie wasn't exciting, suspenseful or scary.

Headspace Will Mess With Your Head July 25 2006
By Horrified - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie is deranged, and I mean that in a good way. Yes, it's a horror movie, yes there's a partially undraped hottie, and yes, there are some really good "gotcha" moments that will make you jump. But watching Chris Denham come unglued makes for interesting viewing. His character acts like a real person and not a cardboard cutout, or the typical dumb guy horror movie protagonist who goes into the dark house without a flashlight or a clue. It's fun, it's kind of scary and, (sorry, can't resist) Headspace is, well, heady. So turn off the lights, nuke the popcorn, and have fun!
