Axeman

review by
Mike Haberfelner

A trio of gangsters (Tiffany Shepis, Carlos Javier Castillo, Ray Trickitt) make it to their hide-out, a cabin in the woods, with several million Dollars in loot - to suddenly be felled by a mountain of a man who has become a local legend named The Axeman (Scot Pollard).

Several days later, a group of twenty-somethings come up to a neighbouring cabin for what they think will be nothing short of a weekend of nonstop partying - but it soon turns out they all have way too many issues to cut through to really get a party going. There's Stacy (Elissa Dowling), who's getting it on with her best friend Cassidy's (Chantelle Albers) ex Brian (Stephen Eith), even though Cassidy has never given up on him, and that's even though she has brought her new boyfriend Doug (Dylan Hobbs) along, there's Darren (Joston Theney), who is way too shy to ask the girl of his dreams, Vivian (Eliza Kiss) out, and her being fully aware of this making a fool out of him, there's lesbians Tammy (Jamie Bernadette) and Liz (Erin Marie Hogan), who can't keep their hands off one another, and then there's overweight and harmless pervert Randy (Nihilist Gelo), who carries his camera everywhere just in case he can snap a piece of nudity and sex. Now with all this conflicts going on within the group, nobody seems to notice for a while that Randy has gone missing (as in killed by the Axeman), and their search efforts are so half-hearted that they don't even notice that several more of their ranks are killed along the way. But things really get bad when the Axeman enters the house, and it seems everybody inside is way too busy with make-up sex to even notice their friends are massacred ...

Genre veteran Brinke Stevens has an amusing cameo as local sheriff.

 

Now Axeman Redux doesn't make any pretensions to be anything other than a slasher movie, as it ticks all the boxes from partying youngsters to the scary killer with big weapons to the brutal murders. But as a slasher movie, Axeman Redux really gets things right: For one, it's much more character-centered than your usual genre fare, which of course helps with caring for the victims, then the right balance is found not only between suspense, jump scares and gruesomeness, but also between drama and comedy, and the killings are gruesome and inventive but never feel gratuitous. And of course, a strong ensemble cast really helps keeping things interesting throughout.

Now fans of the slasher genre are sure to like this one, but even non-fans might find this interesting, if not more.
