Excellent horror film!

This Spanish horror film is one of the best I´ve ever seen!... and I´ve seen quite a few. In a small village in New Orleans, a maniac starts killing women with an axe... There´s a lot of blood in this film but it´s not disturbing since the violent or dramatic scenes are very well-balanced, at least to me. This extraordinary film reminds me the great "Pieces" directed by Juan Piquer... so if you like "Pieces" you´ve got to watch this one!. The killer in this film wears a black raincoat, black gloves and a white mask which is quite terrifying... As in so many other mystery-suspense-horror films, you won´t find out who is the killer until the end, and there are several suspects. Curiously, two of the actresses in this film: Patty Shepard and Alicia Moro, starred in another great Spanish horror film that same year: "Slugs", directed by Juan Piquer. And there´s another actor in this film who starred in many Spanish horror films in the 70,s Jack Taylor. This is a horror film you mustn´t ignore. It´s a gem. (10 out of 10)

This is a classic

I wish this was one of the slashers that fell into the public domain, if only so it could distributed on DVD. I mean really. There is only one bad thing about this movie, and that's the lame song they made for it (also, the fact it plays louder than all the other music). The acting is actually pretty good, not feeling too stiff, the story is intriguing and fun, and most of the music is pretty good. Just the beginning to this movie feels brilliant, building up unreal amounts of tension with so little effort (sadly, this tension seems to go to waste). I love the look of the killer with the distinct, skull-like mask that would have worked well in the Halloween sequels. The gore is nice and the axing is satisfying. Hopefully it will get a nice restored release one day.

An above average slasher flick

I was pleasantly surprised when I rented Edge of the Axe the other night. I was expecting just a stupid funny slasher flick, but I actually got a pretty good slash flick. It's about a white masked killer stalking people in a small town hacking them to pieces with an axe, as if you couldn't tell. Good slashings, a cool slasher, a pretty cool story, little to no clichés, a killing before the opening credits roll, no stereotypical characters makes for a good slashing time. You'd expect by the box and the not so good reviews of the flick that it would be a crappy slash flick released too late (1989) to cash in on the slash fest of the early 80's. In fact the slasher flicks of the early 80's could have learned a lesson from this flick. Check it out. You may be surprised. 7/10
