|wait, lemme get a pen and draw you a mouth~|
It's a little better than your standard slasher film, but it's nowhere the best; Edge of the Axe is rather formulaic and lacked some decent gore, all the while holding a few surprises of its own. A beautifully shot setting and some interesting plot points did made this easy stroll digestible, and the murders, though tame, are still passable by my standards thanks to an intense build-up and set-pieces.
|we're just gonna get something out of yer chest...|
If it only wasn't limited by it's budget, Edge of the Axe could have benefited with some added touches of blood and grue, but as a final product, it passes above the average of your standard hackings and give us some worthwhile turns from the usual.
