This December 30th one of the more bizarre titles flirting with our genre, Mark & Jay Duplass’ Baghead (review), will finally be coming to DVD thanks to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. If you’ve not heard much about the title, I’m not surprised; I’ve been trying to figure out if it belongs on Dread since it started its festival run.
The story follows four struggling writers who take up space in a cabin in the middle of nowhere to work on their idea of a group of friends who are tormented by a killer with a bag over his head. Problems arise when what they’re writing as fiction starts to become truth. The press release for the DVD calls it a “gentle satiriziation” of our genre, a phrase that I honestly don’t know how to feel about.
The DVD will come with commentary by the Brothers Duplass, a featurette called “Mark and Jay Duplass Answer Questions They’ve Already Answered” and something called “Baghead Scares”. If it sounds like something you’d be down to check out, click here to pre-order Baghead through Evilshop!
