    Also known as California Axe Massacre or Lisa, Lisa

    I picked this film up in 2006, purely due to the fact that it was a video Nasty....but I thought for only £12 for a 2 disk set it couldn't be great....

    What a surprise I got.....I loved the film
    I loved the way it started out real hectic and then was contrasted by the errieness of the countryside, I also thought Leslie Lee was fantastic as Lisa....

    Wish it were longer though, clocking in at only 66 minutes!

    Penny for YOUR thoughts people....

    I wouldn't doubt that at all. The running time clocks in at just 68 minutes.

    I felt that Leslie Lee was the absolute highlight of the film, but she sadly never did much (if anything) else.

    I heard she commited suicide a few years after the movie was released..kind of ironic in a fucked up way...

    Most of the Facebook commenters seem to be leaning towards Kidnapped Co-Ed as the second feature, but Severin hasn't yet hinted publicly at what the other film will be, to my knowledge.
