Synopsis

A young man wakes up from a coma in a hospital with no recollection of his past except a gunshot wound to the head. His only friend is the student-doctor Ailin, who nursed him back to recovery, renaming him Ishmael. Ishmael’s new existence is soon shaken up when a vicious gang starts hunting him down along with the people around him. He realizes that to save his future, he must bring back the dark memories from his past.

Director duo Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel step away from their previous horror offerings with this visceral thriller, but still featuring their trademark style, using plenty of gore, amidst the well-choreographed violence. Singapore’s Sunny Pang stars alongside Iko Uwais, in a milestone role as evil gang leader Lee. Headshot recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews.
