Top 10 Axe Murdering Maniacs

With Morgan J. Freeman’s Homecoming hacking its way onto DVD today (courtesy of Paramount Pictures), we here at Dread Central thought it a perfect occasion to take a look back at our favorite on-screen axe murderers as a way of indoctrinating this new blood into the mix.

10. Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare) – Fargo (1996)
Grimsrud may not be an axe murderer per se, but you’ve got to respect the way in which this guy chooses to solve problems. After an irreparable altercation with his partner in crime, Grimsrud puts his conflict resolution skills to good use courtesy of a hatchet and a woodchipper.

The best thing about Madman is that goofy new wavish song that plays over the credits.

Silent Night Deadly Night is also really underrated. People only remember it for the controversy surrounding it, but it is actually a pretty decent movie. I was shocked when I realized there was a coherent plot the first time I saw it.

The Prey!

I remember that movie.

One of the first truly awful/boring horror flicks I remember fairly clearly.
