Axe back to product details

Axe was a Real Hatchet Job

As already stated in the previous review, the movie was very slow and not much happened. I wasn't scared and I don't think the characters were either. Or you could chalk it up to bad acting. The movie is actually only about an hour long and the only mildly interesting scene was the ending where she feed the guys blood/soup. The criminals only really scare her by asking for some homemade chicken. She seeming slips into a coma for the rest of the film. There is a funny scene where one of the guys, I think, tries to rape her in front of her crippled grandfather. It mostly consists of them just shaking each other for about 5 minutes and I was to the point where I wanted one of those idiots to die. Thankfully, one did.

However bad the film was, there are several dvd extras included for those interested. There is another film titled The Electric Chair, which is also pretty bad. There are 11 trailers, a horror gallery, and some archive footage from the 50's.

A Slow Ride to Grandma's House...

I can't believe that SW released this on a single feature DVD (unlike the other Harry Novak epics they've released). I guess they figured the artwork and plot synopsis would sell it to newbie fans who have no idea what it is.
The actual title is Lisa, Lisa, but the old school crowd will remember it as California Axe Massacre. Regardless of that, this movie does not take place in California, feature an axe, nor have a massacre. What it does have is somnia-inducing properties and a TV-movie level of exploitation content.
The predictable plot creaks along at a snails pace with leaden acting, no gore and precious few unintentional laughs to liven things up.
The best moment is at the very end when the girl is feeding her invalid grandfather tomato soup that isn't made with tomatoes... (trust me, that really is the only interesting moment in the film)
Some folks seem to remember this one with a bit of fondness, but to be blunt, I thought it sucked then, and I think it still sucks now.
