Headspace (2006)

Not to be cruel, but the people who made this movie are retarded. They had an interesting premise about a man whose mysterious increase in intelligence coincides with a series of bizarre deaths, and they ignored it almost completely in favor of a dumbass monster-on-the-loose film. I've been trying to be nicer in my reviews lately, but seeing this level of squandered promise just ticks me off. There are many strange and fascinating places this premise could have explored, but instead it's all downhill after the opening sequence in which Larry Fessenden blasts a huge hole through Sean Young's head. If you want to make a monster movie, people, just make a damn unpretentious monster movie. There's no need to complicate things. Leave the chess obsession and the endless speeches and the childhood trauma nonsense to another film, m'kay?

Grade: C-
