Trivia / Ax 'Em

  • The Danza: The main character Michael is portrayed by director, writer, and actor...Michael Mfume.
  • Dedication: To the director's grandmother.
  • No Budget: The estimated budget for the film was a whopping $650 - and it shows.
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The film was produced in 1992 (under the title The Weekend It Lives), and even received a brief theatrical showing in Baltimore, Maryland, but sat on the shelf for a decade before being released to DVD in 2002.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Aside from the fact that the dialogue is heavily prevalent on Totally Radical lingo and conversations, there are numerous references to pop culture works like Inspector Gadget and RoboCop, along with references to MC Hammer and Desert Storm.
  • What Could Have Been: Mfume, for all the film's faults, genuinely tried to make a decent film on a shoestring budget.
