Nach dem Tod ihres Vaters (Peter Mullan) erfährt Iris (Freya Allan), dass sie einen heruntergekommenen, jahrhundertealten Pub in Berlin geerbt hat. Dabei ahnt sie nicht, dass sie als neue Eigentümerin untrennbar mit einem unheimlichen Wesen verbunden ist, das im Keller des Pubs haust – Baghead, eine angsteinflößende Kreatur, die die Gestalt von Verstorbenen annehmen kann. Verzweifelte Hinterbliebene haben zwei Minuten Zeit, mit den Toten zu sprechen und ihre Trauer zu lindern. Sollte diese Zwei-Minuten-Regel allerdings gebrochen werden, müssen alle Beteiligten schreckliche Konsequenzen tragen. (StudioCanal Deutschland)

Englisch I was actually quite surprised. It's definitely the more acceptable mainstream for me, not as obnoxiously generic and clichéd as say Night Swim or Imaginary, but going for a slightly different route that's reminiscent of the recent Talk to Me. A girl inherits an ancient house from her father that hides a secret in the basement, there's a witch who has the ability to turn into someone dead, but only for a certain amount of time and there are rules to follow. The look of the creature is great, technically the film is on the level, I was intrigued by the whole mythology around the witch (I have more affection for them than for ghosts), the scares don't work and it's not scary, but it's quite suspenseful, it's not boring and the ending is definitely unexpected. Decent. 6/10. ()

Englisch Very, very bad. I'm surprised that the ratings here are quite high above 50 percent. Sterile and unimaginative direction, a painful script (dull characters, confusing rules, predictable twist). Baghead strikes me as an amateurish film whose makers have somewhere scrounged just enough money to give it at least a technically decent facade. ()
