review by
Mike Haberfelner

As a masked serial killer, Hackley (Allen Hackley) ruled the 1980s, when his unpredictable axe-killings were just the talk of the town ... but these are the 2010s, and his methods are no longer that up-to-date and everything has become ... incorporated - yes, Hackley works a 9 to 5 job as a serial killer these days where he has to fill out report cards, has to meet all sorts of quotas, and has to follow company guidelines, however stupid they are. And even if he is senior to everyone in the company, he has to obey to the whims of his rather ignorant boss El Matador (Trey Huguley) and play second fiddle to the perpetual employee of the month Rival (Justin Habersaat). And despite his company record regarding killings, he has to undergo job training when he doesn't meet the quota one month, and take on an elderly cancerous intern (Mike Fisher) - whose slowburn killing methods freak out even Hackley. And despite all these humiliations, and despite even killing the one colleague Hackley acutally liked (Garrett Graham), he fails to keep his job just because his victim-to-be (Michelle Ellen Jones) dies of a heart attack before he even manages to lay hands on her. But now things are going too far even for mild-mannered (as far as a serial killer can be just that) Hackley - and his revenge will be ... well, unexpectedly bizarre, to say the least ...


Fun with Hackley: Axe Murderer is first and foremost a film that ought to appeal to slasher fans, as it self-consciously plays with genre rules and conventions not even the famed retro slasher Scream dreamed of doing - which is mostly due to Fun with Hackley: Axe Murderer bravely setting its plot in the corporate world of the 2010s - which might ask quite a bit of a suspension of disbelief, but it makes sense within genre boundaries ... and in fact, the film is pretty funny in a macabre way, as the direction is spot on, the cast seems to have tons of fun, and the comedy is at its best really funny and even at its worst stays a notch or two above being just vulgar ... so in all, you might ave to be a genre fan to really appreciate this film, but if so, you'll very probably have quite a few really good chuckles.
