Horrorfest 2022 Presents: Head of the Family (1996, Charles Band)

Head of the Family has some good comedic moments, yet as a horror movie it’s flat and not interesting enough. The mutants provide some entertainment, however I couldn’t give a hoot about the human characters whatsoever. Furthermore the movie seemed to be holding the viewer at arm’s length, possibly afraid no one would laugh at the jokes and daring people to care about this goofy movie. It doesn’t work, yet I didn’t hate this movie. I was just left disappointed.

Most of the truly captivating material happens in the last act, which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the movie. Charles Band has done much better work, check that stuff out instead. Viewed on Shudder because of, who else, Joe Bob Briggs, of course. I wonder if the sequel goes full camp all the way or not.
