‘Dare to play’

Headgame is a 2018 American horror film directed by Steven Judd (Death Factory) from a screenplay by Roberto Marinas. It stars Leonard Roberts, Carly Steel, Chris Hayes and Jamie Hill Fuller.

A group of young people awake, locked inside a warehouse with cameras screwed into their heads. It becomes apparent that they are unwilling competitors in a deadly game, and they will need to murder each other if they hope to survive…



“The story here is one that is fairly-predictable, though with an ultimate twist that, while feeling wholly unsatisfying and somehow superfluous, almost forcibly leads toward a sequel. That said, for what it is and despite its own shortcomings, Headgame is an enjoyable watch…” Jeannie Blue, Cryptic Rock
