With the world in financial turmoil, Kurt Wendell has lost his top job in the city but cannot bear to tell his family the dreadful truth. Luckily he's a man who knows how to make serious cutbacks... Granting his children a day off school and his wife a day off work, Kurt drives the whole family to a remote spot, miles from civilization. Little do they know what he has in store for them... One last bit of business, a final project that is both sinister and deadly, involving his wife, his children, and the savagely beaten man trapped in the attic... It's not only Kurt Wendell that's getting AXED, as his ex-boss and his horrified family are about to find out, one by one. Written by Ryan Lee Driscoll

Creepy, bloody and surprisingly good UK horror
17 March 2013 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

This is a small UK horror that is way better than the 3.4 rating it currently has on IMDb.

It is a disturbing and creepy film with a wonderfully sinister and maniacal performance by Jonathan Hansler as the deranged father. He is backed up by good performances from the rest of the surprisingly good cast.

There is barely a dull moment as Dad goes on the rampage. You never quite know where the story will go and it is refreshing to see a horror film that isn't predictable. There are scenes of real tension throughout and plenty of blood for those that like that kind of thing.

I really enjoyed this film and I am really surprised it has such bad reviews. Yes it isn't perfect or ground breaking but for a small film it punches well above it's weight. Recommended if you like slightly quirky UK horror.
