A crossover between“The Blair Witch Project”, “Clerks” and “Fargo”, “Baghead” tells the tale of friends who retreat to the wilderness to write a screenplay. Their plans are foiled by a creepy man with a bag on his head – a murderer, presumably. Horror, comedy, romantic drama? “Baghead” is a little of everything and the best of anything: highly amusing and nail-bitingly exciting.
