This movie is cool, just don't go in expecting full blown gory action horror - it's not that at all. It's way more of a slow burn, suspense film. So if that's your thing you'll dig it. Filmmakers did a great job building a gothic, medieval world I hadn't seen on film before. Cinematography and story craft is on point.

The Synopsis for The Head Hunter (2019) 720p
A warrior travels wild expanses on horseback, pursuing the monster that murdered his daughter. His thirst for revenge is the driving force of a film constructed with very few elements, minimalistic and epic at the same time, where fantasy and horror find their more physical and gory incarnations (synopsis in the 2018 Sitges Filmfestival programme catalogue).

Solid Suspense ThrillerReviewed bydillontuckerVote: 8/10
I saw this on the SOFA-festival at ?kra, and expected a bit more than delivered in this movie. its a big bearded man with big hunches on his shoulders, that reacts like a manchurian candidate everytime the horn is blown from the nearby castle. he is kind of preprogrammed to fight down ''the head'',that has once upon atime killed his beloved daughter. if he gets his revenge, well youll have to see for yourself.
its a primitive,almost neolittic kind of settings-movie, with a bonfire inside a stone house, thus having the ability of using heavy metals, there are and overtone of adrenaline kick as to kill or to be killed,through the whole movie. its cold and winterly,wet and dirty everywhere, and lots of woods. the props,and some of the effects are quite good, but youll have to let yourself into the character to enjoy the watch.
the acting are with very few words, and until he open his first phrase you would expect something ''norr?na''-styled of language to come, buuut, its just english. the main male, does a fine job on the physical level, and had scared the guts out of me if standing on my door step.
the grumpy old man has ambivalent feelings for this kinda flicks, so if you like vikings,swords and boobie-traps, then its for you. i give it a 6.
The Head Hunter's gorgeous cinematography scales over epic landscapes of Porto as well as brutal closeups of carnage. The impressive practical effects are skillfully done, while the enthralling sound design makes sure you feel every crack and splatter. Christopher Rygh looks as though he was pulled right off a Viking warship and thrown into an equally heavy metal plot, carrying the film on his back like the quarry of a successful hunt. A surefire cult classic that I look forward to watching over and over again. This is how indie horror is done.
