Baghead

A FILM BY Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass

A raw, wickedly clever comedy that also includes moments of genuine terror.
-J.R. Jones,Chicago Reader
It's entertaining, often funny and ultimately endearing, thanks mainly to its ensemble cast.
-Rafer Guzman,Newsday
The semi-improvised performances, which seem so natural that it is tempting to confuse the actors with their characters, bring Baghead into the realm of group therapy observed through one-way glass.
-Stephen Holden,New York Times

Synopsis

While the Duplass Brothers were shooting their last feature film The Puffy Chair, a crew member raised the question “what’s the scariest thing you can think of?” Someone immediately said “a guy with a bag on his head staring into your window.” Some agreed, but some thought it was downright ridiculous and, if anything, funny (but definitely not scary). Thus, BAGHEAD was born, an attempt to take the absurdly low-concept idea of a “guy with a bag on his head” and make a funny, truthful, endearing film that, maybe, just maybe, was a little bit scary, too.
