Written & Directed by: Jay and Mark Duplass
Full credits from IMDb

Grade: A-

Initially, Baghead feels like a conventional mumblecore movie, steeped in the movement’s understated naturalism and twentysomething solipsism. Then the Bros. Duplass (The Puffy Chair) play a neat trick, taking a narrative turn into home invasion horror. Think Hannah Gets Pushed Down the Stairs. Or Hell-OL. But Baghead succeeds where other genre fusion films fail because its horror emerges organically from its drama; expertly entwined, they pick up each other’s slack.
