Plot – Spoilers:
I want to fuck your brains out, not because I want you so bad, but because I hate you that bad.
Deep in backwoods country, folk follow a peculiar tradition when someone does them wrong and they run out of ways of upping the revenge. They just grab someone from the family and give them a header. First you make a hole in your victim’s head exposing the brain and then you fuck it. The more experienced and savvy ones use a hole-saw drill to avoid skull slivers.
Header has all the symptoms of a trash b-movie and yet, somehow rises above. It’s probably thanks to a legless old man whose enthusiasm over headers adds hilarity to the macabre moments. There are also attempts to build some of the characters. For example, you have this ATF guy masturbating by a lake in one scene. This serves to add nothing to the plot, but only seems to to emphasize his pain and devotion to his sickly wife at home.
