When I sat down to watch writer-director Jesse O’Brien’s Two Heads Creek I didn’t know what to really expect. The sad truth is that horror-comedies rarely live up to expectations or their PR campaigns. However, Two Heads Creek is a rare exception.
The UK/Aussie film is about a brother and sister who discover that they were adopted after their mother’s death. It was no surprise that they set out to find the mother who gave them up. What they don’t know is how just how twisted their family really is.
Two Heads Creek is a mix of blood-drenched action and dark humor. It’s wickedly funny and delightfully demented. This fun flick is a bit campy from beginning to end but in the best possible way! Looking for blood and gore? Two Heads Creek has it, my god does it ever!
Jordan Waller and Kathryn Wilder star as the siblings who head to a tiny outback town looking for dear old mom only to be told by the town that she had died, but the truth is much darker than they could ever imagine. The two are simply fantastic.
The cast of demented residents of Two Heads Creek is played by Kerry Armstrong, Gary Sweet, Stephen Hunter, Don Bridges, Madelaine Nunn, and Helen Dallimore. They nailed their wacky roles.
Usually, I can guess a movie’s twist within minutes of hitting play, however, I didn’t see this one coming. To be honest, that may be due to the fact that I didn’t watch the trailer ahead of time. I rarely do watch them for movies I’m going to review, thanks to their bad track record for spoiling movies. After watching the movie I did go back and watch the trailer which gave away a little too much, but filmmakers rarely have a choice in that. The studio is usually the ones at fault. They are usually the ones who put the trailers together.
Two Heads Creek is horror-comedy done right. I could definitely see it gathering a cult following and joining the ranks of movies like Tucker and Dale vs Evil.
Two Heads Creek is bloody clever. It’s a great side-splitting gorefest, that needs to be seen, that’s why it’s getting a score of 5 out of 5. Be sure to check it out when it’s released on June 23rd on VOD and On Demand.
