What exactly is a "header" you're probably asking yourself? Well without spoiling too much, let's just say it is the ultimate form of backwoods vengeance. "It's how we do things around here, how we takes care of bidness. The only thing you can do to get proper ree-venge is by having a header!" Grandpap explains, in this outrageous gross-out based on an Edward Lee novella. In the Bible it might purport an eye for an eye, but out here in these sticks it's a head for a head, apparently. All I'll say in good conscience is that Bobby in Deliverance had it pretty easy, if that tells you anything.
Before the inevitable showdown goes down, we witness Travis and Grandpap subjecting various "skanky crackers" to their most unusual whims; Agent Cummings falling under FBI surveillance; and enough unsavory-ness to alarm even the poor sheep in the foothills of Kentucky.
If you're the delicate or sensitive type you might want to steer clear of Header. However, the entire premise is crazier than a shit-house rat, so it's hard to ever take too seriously. The zany dialogue had me laughing out loud repeatedly and I found the whole sordid affair generally entertaining. How can you not with kidnapping, murder, headers, shootings, masturbation, police corruption, marital infidelity and psychosis coloring the plot?
