A group of twenty-somethings have rented a cabin deep in the woods for a sort of inofficial college reunion, to pay tribute to their old partying ways one last time. But somehow, the guestlist of this event is ill-advised from the get-go: There's Brian (Stephen Eith), his ex Cass (Chantelle Albers) who has never given up on him, her current boyfriend Doug (Dylan Hobbs), who's less than crazy about the way Cass tries to get back with Brian, Brian's current girlfriend Stacy (Elissa Dowling), who once was Cass's best friend, pretty Vivian (Eliza Kiss) and Darren (Joston Theney), who is madly in love with Vivian but has never once mustered up enough courage to ask her out in seven years, so much so that she makes fun of him, lesbians Tammy (Jamie Bernadette) and Liz (Erin Marie Hogan), who get on everybody's nerves because they are deeply in love and have no reservations to show it, and of course the overweight harmless pervert Randy (J. Scott), who can't be dissuaded from carrying a camera wherever he goes.

So yeah, this constellation alone already warrants genuine chaos, but worse still, the house was once the scene of the horrible Axeman Murders, a killing spree that was never solved - and wouldn't you know it, the Axeman's still around, hasn't forgotten the old cabin, and has brought a bagful of weapons to kill our heroes, one by one by one ...

Genre veterans Tiffany Shepis and Brinke Stevens make cameo appearances as a criminal and a Sheriff, both slaughtered by the Axeman (in separate scenes), while Arielle Brachfeld handles the funniest character of the movie - a hung-over deputy - rather brilliantly.

 

While basically, this film was of course made to appeal to the slasher fanbase, featuring quite a few inventive and nasty deaths with just the right amount of gore, a very mean killer, some chases with the characters stumbling quite a few times too often, and of course, partying youngsters, pre-marital sex, bitches and jocks and whatnot ...

But there's a little more to Axeman, as it features rather believable characters one can actually identify with, embodied by a very competent cast, it doesn't give away the last (wo-)man standing within the first five minutes, while genuine suspense is created, the murders still happen surprisingly and without a fixed pattern, the shocks are well-set, but so are the bits of comedy making this kind of movie work in the first place.

So yeah, it is a formula movie, but with plenty of entertainment value to also appeal to non-slasher fans - really, it's good fun.
