Axe ‘Em (2 Smooth Film Productions, 1992)
Also known as The Weekend It Lives or the worst movie ever made, Axe “Em was written, directed, produced and starred Michael Mfume. (Remember that it will factor in later.) The film follows a group of teenagers on a weekend retreat at a remote cabin in the woods that become the targets of a crazed killer. I would love to give you details on the film’s budget and box office totals, but I can’t. Here’s why. This is a film akin to Who Killed Captain Alex?. It was independent movie filmed by a normal guy who used friends as his cast and crew. It was screened at a local Baltimore movie theater because Mfume’s father rented out a theater for friends and family for the “screening.” The movies graphics, technical aspects and sound are atrocious (in fact you can barely hear the dialogue at times). Scenes are not weaved together properly, some cut out in the middle. The film is a mess. The DVD release was a rush job and responsible for even more technical errors.
