Director: MARK DUPLASS, JAY DUPLASS
The Duplass brothers’ follow-up to their indie hit The Puffy Chair is a witty deconstruction of the modern horror ﬁlm. A hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Baghead tracks the fortunes of a group of aspiring young ﬁlmmakers holed up in a cabin to work on a screenplay for their debut thriller.
Life begins to imi- tate art when a mysterious, hooded ﬁgure shows up, transforming a simple artists’ retreat into something out of The Blair Witch Project. Equal parts clever, insightful and downright creepy, Baghead is a knowing look at independent ﬁlmmaking from some folks who oughta know.
“Baghead provides what nine out of 10 dead-teenagers movies lack: speciﬁcally, a realistic sense of char- acter that gives moviegoers a reason to identify with the would-be victims… Mark and Jay Duplass excel [at] taking the art of the awkward moment to new heights.” – Variety
