Monster Fest Official Selection HEAD COUNT Now Available On Digital

Following its World Premiere at Monster Fest 2023 in Melbourne last month, filmmaking kin Ben & Jacob Burghart‘s HEAD COUNT is now available in Australia to rent and buy on Digital platforms including Apple TV & Google Play.

HEAD COUNT is a breakneck-paced neo-western/thriller that positions its protagonist Kat (Aaron Jakubenko, GREAT WHITE) in a lethal predicament where he need determine what lead him there for a chance to survive.

If Digital isn’t your thing, Umbrella Entertainment are releasing HEAD COUNT to DVD on December 6, complete with an Audio Commentary and the Short Film on which the feature was based.

A gun is pointed to Kat’s head. It’s his gun. Or at least it was after he escaped a chain gang and stole it. Luckily for him though, it’s not fully loaded. But how many bullets are left? He can’t quite remember. And now, with an unknown assailant pulling the trigger, Kat is forced to recall exactly what happened to each bullet. As the empty rounds click away, memories of wild animal attacks, run-ins with an impulsive police officer, a down-to-earth arms dealer, and his ex-lover come flooding back. As the pressure mounts, Kat must figure out how many rounds are left and try to devise a plan to escape… one more time.

HEAD COUNT also stars Melanie Zanetti and Ryan Kwanten.
