Not a good flick. Period.

I love campy b-horror as much as the next, but this was simply not enjoyable in any way. I will simply point you to the ONLY two reviewers who gave this a positive score:

  • one of them admittedly worked on the film
  • the other has only two reviews...this movie, and Axeman 1...each of which were "amazing."


I rarely base whether I watch a film on the often numerous reviewers stating that "the only good reviews must come from people on the film," since most times there are a plethora of other reviews to balance out some of this back seat directing. In this case, it was obvious to me that the two reviewers worked on the film. Regrettably, I have pan this one. Unless, of course, you like your schlock horror:
  • with acting that is akin to a first read-through of a script
  • terrible cgi fx (that don't even pixelate properly)
  • poor film work with non-professional equipment
  • sound and Foley that are equally as bad


I can always overlook some bad acting, or phony fx, but there's a difference between seeing a film that genuinely appears to have been made by folks who believe in the project, and one that looks hastily put together & made with friends on the hill behind your grandmother's house. I have definitely seen worse, but not by much.

I can not honestly recommend this. Most of these flicks carry a bit of gore to make them worth the watch, some clever dialog, or at least ONE facet that makes it watchable. Not in this case.
