Trivia

The original cut of the film (titled "The Weekend it Lives") was supposedly more of a comic-horror parody than straight horror. However, when York Entertainment picked up the home video rights years later they drastically re-cut the film. Scenes are now incomplete, out of order or missing entirely leaving much of the film incoherent and its tone unclear. It is unknown if any prints of the original version still exist. See more »

Has to be seen to believe.

Even though I give Ax'Em a 1/10 I still want people to see it. Its one of those movies thats so bad its funny. Ax'Em is a horror/slasher movie that was supposed to be serious but it ended up like more of a comedy. Ax'Em was directed by Michal Mfume who looks like he hasn't done anything sense.

Ax'Em is about several young people who go to the woods for a vacation. What they don't know is that a killer who came back from the dead is out to get them. Before they go out to the woods there is a little get together in which there is dancing and a 'yo mamma' battle breaks out. I guess Michal Mfume is just filming anything and putting it in the movie. Nothing says good horror movie than a yo mamma battle.

The killer in this movie is a real mess. First the movie is called Ax'Em and the killer doesn't even use an ax. He uses a hatchet, a machete and a baseball bat. Plus the killer poses for the camera.

Ax'Em has many flaws including hearing the director say CUT in one scene, and another scene is shown twice in a row for no reason at all. There are more. Ax'Em is a funny movie thats horribly acted, directed written and acted.

Its a bad horror movie but a good comedy.
