AFM ’11: First Details, Art, Pics for Axed


A father is pushed to the edge

Axed is a new UK thriller that came to our attention while attending the American Film Market this week. It’s from director Ryan L. Driscoll (who served as an editor on Funny Man, if you remember that 1994 flick). Jonathan Hansler, Andrea Gordon, Nicola Posener and Christopher Rithin lead the cast. You’ll find some AFM promo art, a synopsis and images below.

With a world in financial turmoil, Kurt Wendell has been shaken to the core. His job had always been his anchor, the one place that kept him sane. But not they’ve taken it away from him. And his demons are finally taking over…

Unable to tell his family the dreadful truth, Kurt decides to make some serious cutbacks.

Granting his children a day off from school and his wife a day off from work, he drives the whole family to a remote spot, miles from civilization. little do they know what he has in store for them.

One last bit of business, a final project that is both sinister and deadly, involving his wife, his children, and the savagely beaten man trapped in the attic.

It’s not only Kurt Wendell that’s getting AXED, as his ex-boss and his horrified family are about to find out, one by one…
