Imagine something Blair Witch Project-y, but that was also mostly comedic.

Then, sort of, you’d have Baghead. Four struggling writers/actors (played by a bunch of, you guessed it, struggling writers/actors) spend a weekend in a cabin in the woods determined to write their own movie starring themselves. Relationship dynamics are explored via the majority of the dialogue, but things take a turn for the weird when a mysterious person with a paper bag over their head begins to make various appearances during the weekend. Is this a horror/comedy, or a comedy/horror?

Written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass (no, you haven’t heard of anything they’ve done, either), Baghead has been making the festival rounds, premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was picked up for limited release by Sony Pictures Classics.
