Head of the Family is a comedy/horror film directed by Charles Band. The story revolves around the disturbingly strange Stackpoole family, an interesting bunch with a knack for capturing innocents and performing ghoulish experiments on them. Lance (Blake Bailey) and Loretta (Jacqueline Lovell), a scheming pair of lovers who are trying to rid themselves of the problem that is Loretta's husband Howard (Jennison Noice) decide to take advantage of the weirdest family in town by blackmailing them. For all of their scheming ways, nothing can prepare them for the members of this freaky family, a set of quintuplets each of whom have only one amplified version of a normal human trait. One is strong, the other beautiful, and another has super senses. The fourth brother, Myron (J. W. Perra), is super intelligent and, as the title suggests, the "head of the family". The couple meets their match and much more in this 1996 black comedy.
