I feel that this DVD cover is deceptive, and the alternate (of the four people in bed with bags on their heads) is more truthful as far as the film is concerned. Didn't care about any of the characters and wanted them all to be hacked up.

This is one horror where they prank each other and it turns in to reality during the movie as Slasher films go id say this is one of the worst i had the misfortune to Watch hence a very bad star rating if you looking for decent slasher horror movies Forget this one and go for Halloween The Burning or most of the Friday the 13th

After attending a screening of `We Are Naked', pretentious indie director Jess Garner's latest low-budget epic; friends Matt, Chad, Christine and Michelle decide to write their own film in which they will star and hopefully jump start their flagging acting careers. The four immediately set off for a weekend of screen-writing in a relatives holiday home located in the Californian `Big Bear' woods.
After a drunken night Michelle tells Matt of a weird dream she had about a stranger in the woods with a bag on his head, he immediately jumps on the idea as the perfect plot for their movie. As the four set down for another drunken brainstorming session a love triangle unfolds in which Chad reveals his interest in Michelle, Michelle has designs on Matt, and Christine's jealous side is stirred, meanwhile they start to panic as there could be a real baghead in the woods.
Another micro-budget mumblecore film from the Duplass brothers, part comedy, part drama and part thriller, Baghead is a hard film to categorise. The film starts off quite light-hearted with an amusing opening which takes a swipe at pretentious low-budget cinema and a very funny scene where a character tries to blag his way into an after show party using his wallet as a cell phone. The film then moves into traditional mumblecore dialogue heavy character based drama and then strays into an almost `Blair Witch' style horror/thriller. The dialogue is snappy, fresh, natural and often very witty; the pacing is good and at only 84 minutes long the story moves along at a decent pace.
For me though, this wasn't as good as the Duplass brothers previous effort `The Puffy Chair', but if you like mumblecore films then this is definitely one worth making the effort to see.

I picked this up at random in my local DVD store, and was very pleasantly surprised. It's smart, funny and full of great dialogue. My only quibble is that it became a bit obvious where things were going after a while, but getting there was still a lot of fun.
