    And who doesn't love a movie that includes Patty Shepard being attacked in a carwash by a Jason-like serial killer? Good stuff...
    VHS will never die!

    Is it any good? I'm a huge Larraz fan but that looks very unLarrazish. Though I am drawn to 80s Computers Are Magic films...

    It's a rock solid slasher with a pretty air tight mystery as to who the killer is. Some great kills, too. It's not overtly graphic or gory but the axe gets swung pretty fucking hard and the opening scene in a carwash is brilliantly executed. The bits with the computer actually make it pretty ahead of its time. This has to be one of the very first movies where instant messaging is used as a plot point.

    This looks good. I'm always keen on more Larraz stuff getting a proper release.

    Barton Faulks, Christina Marie Lane, Page Mosely English Not Rated From cult Spanish filmmaker José Ramón Larraz (Vampyres, Symptoms) comes this long-neglected late 80s slasher classic, finally unleashed on Blu-ray for the first time ever!

    The rural community of Paddock County is being rocked by the crazed exploits of an axe-wielding psychopath, who stalks the night in a black trenchcoat and mask. As the victims pile up, the authorities attempt to keep a lid on the situation, whilst computer whizz-kid Gerald and girlfriend Lillian seek to unmask the killer before the town population reaches zero.

    Nominally set in Northern California but shot primarily in Madrid, giving the film an off-kilter, American/European atmosphere akin to the likes of Pieces, Edge of the Axe is a late entry hack-and-slash masterpiece from one of the titans of Spanish terror.
