  1. João R's rating of the film The Axe Murders of Villisca

    It doesn't have too much to present from the start, but it proceeds to downgrade until the end.

  2. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Axe Murders of Villisca

    It looks okay and the gay character didn't die; those are the best qualities the movie has going for it. The movie is generally too flashy and loud to be really scary. The framing of the characters is somewhat confused (aside from that of the principal lead) and the movie's co-opting of incidents surrounding real-life deaths is a tad dubious. At best, I'd say it's over-the-top but relatively inoffensive horror.
