10 & 9...

(Francis Ford Coppola, 1979)

This mind-blowing epic squeezed into the Top 10 and we're glad it did.  It's a dark, troubling journey into the heart of darkness.  Coppola's epic design and execution is staggering.  The troubled production is almost as famous as the film itself.  This is definitely one to track down and experience.

(George A. Romero, 1978)

A cult classic and deservedly so.  The follow up to Romero's seminal Night of the Living Dead (1968) expands the zombie nightmare into a global epidemic.  A biting statement on consumerism, Romero has fun with his zombie friends as well as giving us a gross, horrific, splatter-fest, courtesy of Tom Savini's brilliant make-up.  A classic.

The Top 10...

It's taken a long time but the results are finally in.  Here are your all time Top 10 Films, all voted by you!  This will serve as the introduction and we'll put two films up at a time until we get to the top four, where they'll have their own individual post.  So, let the countdown commence...

Number One...

We thought we'd give y'all the chance to guess what the Number One film is before we reveal the Top 10 Films of all time (as voted by you) and, yes, it was surprising but it was what YOU wanted.  So, have a guess, then tweet us your answers (@thebloodaxe).  If you want, we can put up honorary lists 'cause we're that nice.  It won't impact on the overall tallying but if you want to share your film tastes, get in touch.

And, no this picture is not a clue!

100th Post...

It has been a while since we've posted anything and how apt that we publish our 100th post without much to say.  We are currently in the process of tallying up all Top 10 Films lists to give you what you consider the greatest film ever made.  It may thrill you, it may shock you, it might even horrify you but that is how this process was designed to work.  This was a great project and we are thankful that y'all decided to be part of it.

In other non-news, we're looking into revamping the blog with more pages so we can collate all relevant news in separate pages, maybe even have a video page.

We're looking into screening Ferocious Bloodaxe: Part II - 2 Ferocious 2 Bloodaxe about October time when everyone is back together, so we hope you can join us.

K Bargie, which you can now follow him separately on Twitter (@k_bargie) has started writing film reviews which you can read here:  He's also writing articles for, so have a look at those if you want.

Thank You...

We would just like to thank everyone for their support and contributions to the Bloodaxe Top 10 Films project, we appreciate everything y'all have done for us.  Once we've tallied up the films we'll publish your overall Top 10 Films!  There were some great choices and all the lists were surprising, from cult classics to true pieces of art.  Thank you all, again, and we hope you enjoyed the experience!

We'll be back to regular Bloodaxe activities shortly once we're all back together.  Part III should hopefully commence shooting soon and we'll let y'all know when and where you can watch 2 Ferocious 2 Bloodaxe.
