‘Don’t go in the woods’

Axegrinder 2 is a 2019 American slasher horror feature film about two couples who make the mistake of camping in serial killer Freddy Palmer’s domain.

The movie is a belated sequel to Axegrinder (2006) which was directed by David Palmieri.

Directed and edited by Dustin Ferguson (Angry Asian Murder Hornets; Meathook Massacre and sequel; Camp Blood 4 and 5; et al) from a screenplay co-written with John Ward (Ghoul; Meathook Massacre 4), the SoCal Cinema Studios production stars Mike Ferguson (Jaws of Los Angeles), Julie Anne Prescott, Sheri Davis, Shawn C. Phillips and Dawna Lee Heising (Amityville: Evil Never Dies).


” …as I’ve said about several producers in the UK, these kinds of ultra-cheap, assembly line films may be profitable in the short term. But in the long run, they’ll just turn people off of indie horror, if not the genre as a whole […] I’m well over endless shots of nature, random people walking around and dry kills.” Voices from the Balcony
