All I have to say about this one is...Do you know what a Header is? Movie's low-budget, but was done pretty well for what it had. Acting isn't super, but the old man will make you laugh because he's insane. Crazy movie. Don't know if I'd watch it again, but I do like Edward Lee's novels.

So what exactly is a "header"?

"Ah, I can't tell you what a header is, because if you're interested in this film, you'll have to see yourself. But when you find out, guaranteed you will be repulsed, BIG time. If not, then please seek help.
We have a Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms agent who is working both sides of the law because his wife is sick & her prescriptions cost WAY too much. So of course, because he loves her, Agent Cummings does what he has to do to get by.
We have a man who just got out of jail, & heads on back to live with his legless grandpappy, who makes shoes, and there he finds out what a header is. The most I can tell you is it's "The worst thing someone can do to somebody". At least that's how grandpappy describes it. It's a form of revenge, although how it was determined to be a viable revenge method is beyond me.
Of course, as the films goes on, folks begin to cross paths & greed kicks in and there's lots of header action going on too, so things get rather ugly & there's an ending that's completely unexpected. Kind of "when in Rome, do as the Romans". Ick.
Reminds me a bit of 70's flicks, maybe grindhouse type stuff, with lots of hillbillies & gore & uh, well, sex, I guess you could say, so if you enjoy this type of stuff then you'll probably like it. Probably not recommended for fans of the mainstream, though. 4 out of 5."
One SICK flick!!!

"After seeing a horror flick like this, I now know that this will be brought up time and time again when talking about a messed-up film. I've seen many horror flicks way more gorier than this one, but the story that this flick is about rates up there high on the SICK-O-METER!!! On some parts in this film, I felt like I was committing a crime simply because I was watching it haha. What else is next?....seriously! I can definitely see this become a cult classic. I know folks throw those two words around a lot, but I mean it! With what this story is about, the amount of gore depicted in this flick, matches evenly. Even a gorehound like me knows when to be smart on how much gore needs to be thrown around. It all depends on what the story is about. 'Header', in my opinion, is definitely a video nasty!"
EDWARD LEE MASTER OF HARDCORE HORROR

"Edward Lee has long been my favorite author and this movie proves why! King is a puss comparatively!no one had the balls to even touch this movie and i know the punks will come out of the woodworks to challenge me i dont care you will all be taken to task by me! this is the most true to source film i have seen in a very long time! Everyone involved with this film deserves NOTHING but respect!It is obviously a labor of love for all involved and from the sound design to the actors to the gore it is TOP NOTCH! This is not for everyone nor should it be. If you dont like gore if you dont like objectionable/offensive subject matter this will not be for you.Leave now. For those of you who are still reading if you love and are familliar with the small press work of ED LEE this is what you(and I) have been waiting for!I will not give away the story i will say that i am not disappointed at all!All of my expectations were met and exceeded!Rob Zombie wishes he could do this, but he cant and never will!Fulci would be proud!If you dont know who FULCI is do some research and learn what real HORROR is you arent ready for this! I would simply offer my thanks and utmost respect to all involved! I SAY THANK YOU FOR SHOWING PEOPLE HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE!!!!!!!!!!"
