If you’re a genre fan your radar is always on the alert for certain names in the cast list of any indie film production. If a filmmaker, with a horror tale to tell, lands someone like a Scream Queen with the status of a Brinke Stevens, you immediately take note.
But when a filmmaker, such as writer/director Joston Theney, recruits not only Brinke Stevens, but Tiffany Shepis as well, that’s a film that must immediately go into the must-see queue!!!
On May 6 Midnight Releasing will be bring Theney’s film, Axeman (aka: Axeman at Cutter's Creek) to the domestic market place on DVD. Fans, put it on your calendar, this is one to see, own and savor.
For any good slasher film — especially a “throwback” to the golden age of slasher films — you need a victim pool, preferably loaded heavily with beautiful young women (Eliza Kiss, Elissa Dowling, Arielle Brachfelds, Jamie Bernadette and Erin Marie Hogan and more).
With Axeman, filmmaker Joston Theney generously supplies us with nine, that’s right, nine campers who settle into a remote mountain cabin for a weekend of fun, games, drinking and sex. They are: THE VICTIM POOL!!!
What they fail to realize is — if they did, they wouldn’t be there — is that they’ve ignored all the warnings of the legend of the “Axeman” by the locals and have moved literally into the local “slaughter house.”
Bonus features include extended scenes (with commentary), a blooper reel and a behind-the-scenes montage.
