I'm looking for a movie which I saw the trailer for a couple of years ago. Probably from 2009, but maybe later.

It was a science fiction / body horror movie, set in the current time. There was a creepy, driven guy who implanted some kind of device on top of, or into his head. The thing he put on his head was very striking, it looked like an elongated pyramid, or cone. He seemed to live in an abandoned warehouse, and he gathered a lot of kids around him (who he probably controled with his device). Unfortunately, I don't remember more details, because it was just a trailer. It's probably not too obscure, because it ran in a mainstream cinema before a big film (probably Moon), however I can't find it.

  • If the device was purple, it may be Barney.

The movie is called 0000. I was looking for the same thing and finally found it.

You can also view some details at the director's site, http://eddiealcazar.com/

    Wow, thanks! No wonder I didn't find it, 0000 is basically ungooglable.

    While the URL above is now dead (and the project as well, perhaps), you can still find some information about this unreleased film at echowolfproductions.com/0000-the-movie and at the director's site, eddiealcazar.com

Pyramid Head (spoilers) from Silent Hill (2006) had an elongated pyramid for a head.

The time is earlier than you asked for, but the abandoned warehouse, kids, horror, and pyramid head fits.


Could it be The City of Lost Children?


  • Thanks. There are some simularities, but it is not the same film. The one I'm looking for is definitely from after 2008, and is more realist or near-future sci-fi than fantasy.
