Storyline

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

Time for Creepy Cutbacks!
22 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw this at this year's Bram Stoker Film Festival where it played to a very receptive audience of horror movie fans and picked up the award for Best Screenplay.

Works well as a disturbing psycho-drama based around a man who loses his job and then his mind, much to the increasing horror of his family.

A great music score and moody cinematography helps to build the atmosphere.

Jonathan Hansler is the true star of the show here, obviously relishing the dark humour of his part as the dejected father with one last project to manage up his sleeve. Well it's certainly one way to downsize!…
