ROOM FOR HEADSPACE
Creature Corner reports:
'Two dames that sparked a fire in your devoted Rotten one at a young age were not only lookers but they dabbled in the genre and have hot accents to boot! American Werewolf in London's Jenny Agutter was one, Black Christmas' Olivia Hussey was the other. When either of these ladies snag some work, it's always a good thing, regardless of their age. That's why I'm glad to report that the latter is gearing up to revisit the genre in a indie flick called Headspace.
A Modern Cin?roduction, Headspace rolls cameras in New York City next week with a cast that also includes Dee Wallace Stone (The Howling), Udo Kier (Blade), and William Atherton ('Peck' from Ghostbusters). Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Jamie Kelman is pulling FX duties; you can actually check out a 'trailer' of Kelman at work on a monster for Headspace here. So what's the film about? Let me lay this synopsis down for ya...
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 East Village 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 in the East Village. 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.
Doesn't sound like anything a bottle of Motrin can't handle. Perhaps someone should let Alex know...
Headspace is being helmed by Andrew van den Houten based on a script penned by Steve Klausner and William M. Miller. Filming wraps at the end of the month.'
