Axe (1977)

Also known as California Axe Massacre or Lisa, Lisa

I picked this film up in 2006, purely due to the fact that it was a video Nasty....but I thought for only 12 for a 2 disk set it couldn't be great....

What a surprise I got.....I loved the film
I loved the way it started out real hectic and then was contrasted by the errieness of the countryside, I also thought Leslie Lee was fantastic as Lisa....

Wish it were longer though, clocking in at only 66 minutes!

Penny for YOUR thoughts people....

I wouldn't doubt that at all. The running time clocks in at just 68 minutes.

I felt that Leslie Lee was the absolute highlight of the film, but she sadly never did much (if anything) else.

Most of the Facebook commenters seem to be leaning towards Kidnapped Co-Ed as the second feature, but Severin hasn't yet hinted publicly at what the other film will be, to my knowledge.
