Seconds from death, a nearly decapitated and desperate young man named Brandon (Nic Caruccio) makes a deal with the Devil (Michael Paré) to protect the love of his life Sophia (Amanda Jones) and seek revenge on the drug dealer who almost murdered him…
The acting performances in the movie were fair enough, given the contents of the script and storyline […] Visually then Headless Horseman was actually fair enough for a movie from The Asylum, and at least that counts for something. While I managed to endure all 85 minutes of this 2022 action horror from The Asylum, I wasn’t particularly entertained.” 3 out of 10, Paul Haakonsen
“With a rewrite or two […] and a bit more energetic direction, Headless Horseman might even have worked under a more accurate title. But way too much time is wasted on Brandon wandering through the warehouse that passes for Angel’s drug lab and killing random goons with bad CGI for the film to be anything more than occasionally amusing.” 2 stars out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
Headless Horseman was released by The Asylum On-Demand (VOD) on October 14, 2022.
