Shooting murder scenes for film exhausted Ricci

Los Angeles: Actress Christina Ricci, who plays a murderer in `Lizzie Borden Took an Axe`, said that she was very exhausted after shooting the murder scenes for the film.

Ricci had to hack up bodies with an axe for the film, which is about a religion teacher accused of killing her parents, reports

"My arms got tired because the axe was heavy. You film scenes from a million different angles, and for every take I did 12 chops with the axe. My arms were ripped for about two days after. I didn`t like getting fake blood in my hair though," Bang Showbiz quoted Ricci as saying.

The 33-year-old has earlier featured in films like `Buffalo `66`, `The Opposite of Sex` and `Sleepy Hollow`.
