Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley (2013) – By Brian Morton

I’m a fan of Anthony Spadaccini and Fleet Street Films, they’re a small company that have taken a character and developed it, and have moved forward, not only the story, but the way they tell it and the quality of the film’s production with every sequential film. Their latest, Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley, is not only the best (so far) in the series, but wraps up a terrific story.

Head Cases is the final in Spadaccini’s ‘Wayne Montgomery’ series, if you haven’t been following, Wayne Montgomery is a serial killer who decides to teach his ‘craft’ to the next generation. In this movie, Wayne is on the run, his wife has taken the fall and is in prison and his ‘pupils’ are on the loose.

The difference between this on the previous movies in this series is that this one is told in a sort-of ’20/20′ style, more of a documentary than a ‘found footage’ style that the others were made in. And, the doc style fits better here than the found footage style, it just feels more like a narrative than the past movies, which felt like a puzzle that I had to figure out. The acting is solid, the story is great and the overall look of the film is terrific! Spadaccini seems poised to move on to another story and I’m excited to see where he might go next.

I’m giving Head Cases: Serial Killers in the Delaware Valley 3 1/2 out of 4 cigars, it’s not perfect, it’s a bit long, but this is a fantastic way to wrap up the Wayne Montgomery story, both in style and storytelling! You can find out more for yourself by clicking here.
