THE HEAD: SEASON ONE
Starring: Alexandre Willaume, Katharine O’Donnelly, John Lynch, Laura Bach, Álvaro Morte, and Tomohisa Yamashita
Creators: David Pastor Àlex Pastor, and David Troncoso
This out-of-nowhere miniseries combines two of my favorite stories: John Carpenter's The Thing and Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. The addition of two potentially unreliable narrators (also a personal favorite) and some slasher movie vibes only help to put this show in a category I like to call "extremely my shit." Claustrophobia and paranoia permeate all six episodes, and the story never drags given the short runtime. It's bleak, but The Head is a very bingeable and compelling murder mystery that most people probably will ignore when scrolling the HBO Max menu. Don't be one of those people.
