Has to be seen to believe.
17 March 2008 | by (St.paul,.MN) – See all my reviews

Even though I give Ax'Em a 1/10 I still want people to see it. Its one of those movies thats so bad its funny. Ax'Em is a horror/slasher movie that was supposed to be serious but it ended up like more of a comedy. Ax'Em was directed by Michal Mfume who looks like he hasn't done anything sense.

Ax'Em is about several young people who go to the woods for a vacation. What they don't know is that a killer who came back from the dead is out to get them. Before they go out to the woods there is a little get together in which there is dancing and a 'yo mamma' battle breaks out. I guess Michal Mfume is just filming anything and putting it in the movie. Nothing says good horror movie than a yo mamma battle.

The killer in this movie is a real mess. First the movie is called Ax'Em and the killer doesn't even use an ax. He uses a hatchet, a machete and a baseball bat. Plus the killer poses for the camera.

Ax'Em has many flaws including hearing the director say CUT in one scene, and another scene is shown twice in a row for no reason at all. There are more. Ax'Em is a funny movie thats horribly acted, directed written and acted.

Its a bad horror movie but a good comedy.
