Baghead – TRAILER


Landing in our inbox is the BAGHEAD trailer is a supernatural horror-thriller from the producers of IT and Barbarian, starring Freya Allen (The Witcher) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse). 

Following the death of her estranged father (Peter Mullan), Iris (Freya Allan) learns she has inherited a run-down, centuries-old pub. She travels to Berlin to identify her father’s body and meet with The Solicitor (Ned Dennehy) to discuss the estate. Little does she know, when the deed is signed she will become inextricably tied to an unspeakable entity that resides in the pub’s basement – Baghead – a shape-shifting creature that can transform into the dead. Two thousand in cash for two minutes with the creature is all it takes for desperate loved ones to ease their grief. Neil (Jeremy Irvine), who has lost his wife, is Iris’ first customer. Like her father, Iris is tempted to exploit the creature’s powers and help desperate people for a price. But she soon discovers breaking the two-minute rule can have terrifying consequences. Together with her best friend Katie (Ruby Barker), Iris must battle to keep control of Baghead and figure out how to destroy her, before she destroys them.

Trailer looks pretty good with a load of jump scares and unsettling moments and Peter Mullan appeared in the little seen but very creepy film, ‘Session 9’ and this looks as though it will be in much the similar vein. Directed by Alberto Corredor and adapted from his  festival favourite short film of the same name back in 2017, BAGHEAD also stars Ruby Barker (Bridgerton), Peter Mullan (Top of the Lake), Saffron Burrows (You) and Julika Jenkins (Dark).  

BAGHEAD  will be released in UK and Irish cinemas in 2024. The exact release date to be confirmed but expect further trailers to follow
