The Bighead is a 2013 American horror film directed by Michael Ling, who adapted the screenplay from Edward Lee’s novel. It stars Raquel Cantu, Carrie Malabre, P. David Miller, Michael Coons, Orson Chaplin, Lance Trezona, Ashley Totin and Cheetah Platt.

According to the official website, the Large Melon production is “set in the West Virginian backwoods where vicious monsters, both human and supernatural, go on a terrifying rampage in search of a special young woman. Their path of destruction uncovers long-held secrets and puts the fate of the entire world in jeopardy.”

The film was financed through the crowdfunding site Kickstarter and is planned as a sampler to help finance a full-length feature.

The Bighead has caused controversy with critics and audiences thanks to its extreme bad taste, sex and violence. According to Dread Central, over twenty people walked out of a November 6th 2013 screening at the Hollyshorts Film Festival.
