Dreadful in many ways, and promising in one or two others, Headless Eyes is a real mess of a film. Bo Brundin (an accomplished actor, by the looks of his IMDb page) tries his hardest to save it with an impassioned and occasionally decent performance as the lead psychopath Arthur, but he's been given no direction and has little focus, so it all seems hammy. The editing is generally awful and the film lacks tension, though the final chase sequence ramps it up a bit only for it to finish abruptly.

Several films do this sort of thing much better, like Christmas Evil and Maniac. Watch those and give this one a miss.
