  1. Especially fine are Spade and Louiso, the latter possessing a quality of injured integrity that is priceless here.
  2. Consistently inventive...Comeau comes across likably.
  3. 63
    Expectedly lowbrow and grotesque, but there are some truly inspired moments.

    8 Heads in a Duffel Bag is one of those movies that is so awful you wonder how it ever got made. The script is so bad that no character can8 Heads in a Duffel Bag is one of those movies that is so awful you wonder how it ever got made. The script is so bad that no character can ever say the right thing at the right time, and no character can ever explain themselves correctly. The screenplay is laughable, and the whole movie seems like a 10 minute SNL skit that ran 90 minutes too long. Don't be fooled by Joe Pesci as the main billing; he's not the most important part of the movie. Full Review »
