Trophy Heads 2014 - REVIEW


Being the fan of Full Moon Pictures that I am, I was really excited for this to be released on DVD finally.  Trophy Heads is a Full Moon 6 part mini series that premiered on their streaming service last year in the separate installments.  They took all the episodes and edited into one movie.  Full Moon always manages to pull off a lot of cheesy fun with their films but their more recent films have really been hit or miss.  With a cast full of scream queens from the 80's and 90's what could go wrong??

Max (Adam Noble Roberts) is an obsessed fan of horror movies and the scream queens who played in them.  He is depressed that they get older and the movies that they appeared in are eventually forgotten.  Max and his Mom (Maria Olsen) set out to kidnap his 6 favorite scream queens: Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer, Denise Duff, Darcy DeMoss and Jacqueline Lovell.  He forces them to reenact scenes from their movies as he attempts to kill them and cut off their head for a hanging trophy. Will this all fold out the way he expects?

I really expected a lot from this movie with the awesome cast that is in it and I was not disappointed at all.  Charles Band really out did himself this time and made a slam dunk.  Everything about this movie is a fun old fashion slasher film.  What really makes this movie great was the talented cast and the ability to still be able to steal the show.  I'm a fan of everyone of these ladies and they do not disappoint.  There are even a few cameos that you may recognize also.

All in all if you are looking for a good horror film that is a blast to watch, look no further and pick this one up.  It would be kind of cool if they could do another one like this and have 6 more scream queens to kidnap.  I would be all in for that.  I would have to give this one 7 out of 10 stars.  Definitely worth the price of purchase.
