      Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Fortunately, the excessive nude scenes impart quite a bit of comedy, which the film admirably uses to its advantage.

      Audience Member A fun flick from the 90's. The head was well made, a real throwback. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member WHO MADE THIS MOVIE, bahahaha. jk. but this is not a horror movie - comical, yes - but the only horrorble thing in this film is Loretta's taste in men. when someone gets murdered they basically just walk around the corner & we never see them again, so nothing even happens it's all just dialog with the occasional hip thrust & boob show. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review R P Head of the Family is a fun flick that shouldn't be taken too seriously. I remember the first time watching this and not long after hearing that they were making a Bride of the Head of the Family or something like that. I was so excited for the sequel, and I waited…and waited…and waited. Yep I'm still waiting. I know it's been released, but I'm unable to watch it. Sucks. ( Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/22 Full Review victor o It is amazing what a person does when they are up late and want to see something to help put them asleep. This often showed up and I often turned away. The only reason to watch this is for Jacqueline Lovell's gorgeous body. But I have to admit there was some actual acting depicted by the creepy titular character of this movie. A philandering couple fooling around behind the husband's back gets involved with a group of freaks led by a monstrosity, a small body with a gigantic head with a genius to match. The head of the family is eloquent but ferocious as he secretly terrorizes the small town while his family lives in an opulent house with a fortune accumulated in a legitimate business. The pair devise to obtain leverage to cash in on the head of the family's fortune. From dealing with the husband to obtaining money for expenses, the couple's requests seem small, but the head will not allow himself to be extorted as he uses the family to turn things back to the way it was before they were found out. This was a weird movie but there were some good things here and there. JW Perra delivered as the monstrous head, I got to say his acting did hold my attention when I wasn't weirded out by the crazy family. Still, I wouldn't want to see this again anytime soon. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member If you're a B movie horror fan, you should enjoy this. It's not scary whatsoever , more of a comedy, with a lot of softcore gettin it on. Its a solid effort. Its not meant to be serious. And that's cool. I liked it, but talk to me in a few months and I wont remember much. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member So bad its awesome! Some amazing dialouge plus you get to see Jacueline Louvell naked for several scenes!
