Axeman

review by
Mike Haberfelner

A quarted of biblethumpers (Farrah Abraham, Arielle Hader, Edward Gusts, Allen Merritt) try to make their way through Cutter's Creek, location of the "legendary" Axeman killings from 30 years ago when they happen upon badly wounded and traumatized Tammy (Kailena Mai), who they drag with them to the next cabin ... that's unfortunately also the headquarters of a gang of bankrobbers led by Bird (Craig Partamian) looking for their loot that has been dropped off somewhere in the area. So quite obviously, tensions soon unfold and people end up dead - but that's not the worst, as neither of the two groups actually know that the Axeman (Bryan Clark) has returned for the anniversary and has decided to do some more gruesome killings to mark the occasion.

Meanwhile, back in town, deputy Darlene (Arielle Brachfeld) organizes a search party to track down the Axeman, even if neither she nor any of the locals are really qualified for the job - plus she learns about a dark family secret that somehow links her to the Axeman in a way she's not fond of. Soon of course, things come to a head ... and when they do, they really come to a head ...

Quite a few fan faves in this one: Monique Parent plays Darlene's mother, Maria Olsen her right hand woman, and Jacqui Holland turns in a batshit crazy performance as Bird's maniac moll.

 

Ok, I will admit, Axeman 2: Overkill is a bit over-convoluted, and in all honesty, not all subplots totally gel or get resolved - but that's not only a bad thing, as the complex, genre-bending story keeps the film from being just another slasher movie and/or a mere rehash of the original Axeman, and the movie's many colourful (and invariably deeply flawed) characters really make this one fun to watch. But slasher or not, Axeman 2 does have all the gruesome killings in all the right places, and rates high on the tension and suspense meter. Plus, it's quite simply loads of fun!
