Plot Summary:
"25-year-old Alex Borden is handsome, charming, and intelligent. In fact, he may be too smart for his own good as his life is swiftly becoming a living hell. Alex's nightmare begins when he meets Harry, a mysterious artist and chess-master. Alex becomes alarmed when his intellect mysteriously begins to grow, and so do the horrors that invade his nightmares, and soon his waking hours. Long-suppressed memories surface and Alex must face the terrors of his violent past, a vanished older brother, a father who abandoned both his sons, and a mother who was viciously murdered. The visions intensify and he begins to experience intense headaches that ultimately cause him to blackout. But it is only the beginning of Alex's calamity. Friends and neighbors are disappearing, and people are whispering rumors of a serial killer. Menaced from all sides by the forces of evil, Alex must overcome his past and contain his own deadly urges so he can hopefully discover what demons, both real and imagined, are stalking him."

This interesting indie horror has a wonderful cast including Larry Fessenden, Sean Young, Dee Wallace Stone (E.T.’s mom!), Udo Keir, Mark Margolis and even Olivia Hussey…what a truly great cast.

The film follows Alex Borden (perhaps a distant cousin of the infamous Lizzie?) as he begins to take on knowledge at an alarmingly fast rate (think John Travolta in Phenomenon fast). His increased capacity for learning soon morphs into hearing voices and seeing demons and that’s when a number of people begin to die in some spectacularly gruesome and well executed ways.

The film is very different to the majority of straight to DVD horror films out there at the moment, but I always feel a little let down by these all in the mind or is it? Flicks, as it takes something away. Perhaps I just feel that it gives filmmakers licence to be over the top in terms of creativity and explain it all away as being in someone’s mind?

OVERALL SUMMARY
Headspace is worth a rent thanks to its superb cast, solid performances and awesome FX.
