We caught Jordan Downey’s medieval fantasy/horror film The Head at this year’s Sitges Film Festival and we were blown away by the astonishing production value for the low budget, indie offering. Packed to the brim with incredible ideas, some stunning production value, and loads of practical FX, this is a film that we highly recommend keeping on your radar! Hopefully, you won’t have to wait long as it’s been announced that the film has been picked up for worldwide distribution through Vertical Entertainment, although no anticipated release date has been set. Until then, we hope that you’ll enjoy the incredible festival-exclusive poster designed by none other than Christopher Shy!
“Audiences are going to see something truly one-of-a-kind with The Head and it was always important to us that we find the right partner who believed in its unique voice,” said writer/director Jordan Downey. “Vertical Entertainment has a keen eye for finding breakout projects and we couldn’t be more thrilled that ‘The Head’ is joining their impressive roster.”
“The first time we watched The Head we immediately knew it was a special, unique project that would resonate with horror fans,” said Josh Spector, Vice President of Acquisitions and Distribution at Vertical Entertainment. “We are excited to be working with groundbreaking filmmakers like Jordan who are still finding new ways to thrill audiences.”
“The Head follows the lonely, twisted trek of a bounty hunter who seeks vengeance on the monster that slayed his only daughter.”
Directed by Jordan Downey, who co-wrote the film along with Kevin Stewart, The Head stars Christopher Rygh.
