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

Not bad but had some average moments.
27 July 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This film was not bad, it had an okay storyline and some good old fashioned blood spilling. The plot, although not too original, moves along quite good and the characters are actually kind of likable. It is a low budget movie which does well compared to some higher budget films. I did get in to this movie as it kept me interested the whole way through, but it wasn't ground breaking or edge-of-your-seat kind of stuff. As I said, I did like as it was one of the better lower budget films around, but it had moments of lackluster acting which did let it down a bit. They had the right idea for a great movie here but they let it down in the delivery. But overall I give it a 6 out of 10.
