During a weekend getaway to Joshua Tree, a group of teenagers find themselves under mental and physical assault from a supernatural entity that mimics their appearances as it completes an ancient ritual.
About The Film

After ditching his older brother for a group of kids he finds in the desert, Evan (Isaac W. Jay) accidentally evokes an ancient entity—a “hisji”—that can mimic other forms, sowing chaos as it moves toward completing a bloody ritual. As the kids attempt to discern who is real and who is a doppelganger they inch closer and closer towards a reckoning they could never have imagined.

A refreshing take on the slasher formula, Head Count is a film far more concerned with the fundamentals of horror than most, using silence and sound to create an unsettling sense of dread that permeates throughout. A cast of talented young actors and gorgeous cinematography from D.P. Sean Bagley come together to create a chilling experience you’ll not soon forget.
