Complete Cast & Crew at IMDb

Headless is a blood-soaked blast from the past for all the gore hounds, retro-horror enthusiasts, and exploitation film lovers! Billed as a “lost slasher film from 1978,” the film follows a skull-masked killer (Shane Beasley) as he wages an unrelenting spree of murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia. But when his tortured past comes back to haunt him, he plunges to even greater depths of madness and depravity, consuming the lives of a young woman (Kelsey Carlisle) and those she holds dear. Also starring Ellie Church, Dave Parker, Kaden Miller, Brian K. Williams, Haley Madison, and Matt Keeley, with 100% practical effects (no CGI!) provided by the Clockwerk Creature Company and groovy music by Mike Anderson, Sweet Teeth, and Andy D! [86 minutes, Color, 1.77:1, Stereo, English, Unrated]
