Hatchet III review

If you’re a card-carrying soldier in the self-proclaimed “Hatchet Army,” you already know whether you want to see this movie; in fact, you probably already have seen this move. But if you never enlisted, or if you took an honorable discharge after HATCHET II, you may be sitting on the sidelines and wondering whether to [...]

Halloween Horror Nights: Red Carpet Celebrity Interviews

Halloween Horror Nights: Red Carpet Celebrity Interviews

Unlike other Halloween attractions, Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is closely tied in with the horror film genre – perfectly appropriate for company created such classics as DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN, and THE WOLF MAN.

How does writer-director Adam Green’s sequel stack up to his 2006 sleeper? Is it a cut above or a notch below? [...]

Hatchet II review

Hatchet II review

Although clearly inspired by ’80s slasher movies, HATCHET had enough going for it to appeal to horror fans interested in something more than just creative kills. Sadly, HATCHET II delivers little of interest to anyone but gore-hounds. Yes, it should appeal to fans of the original- the self-proclaimed “Hatchet Army” – but HATCHET II falls [...]

Sense of Wonder: Hatchet II & Horror Movie-Going as Tribal Identifier

Sense of Wonder: Hatchet II & Horror Movie-Going as Tribal Identifier

Back in a review of VAMPIRES SUCK, I noted that we are in the era of movie-going as tribal identifiers. Purchasing a ticket is less a matter less of seeking entertainment than of supporting the group with which you self-identify. The problem manifest in this approach is clear: bad STAR WARS prequels, indifferent HARRY POTTER [...]

HATCHET is back – this time on a Blu-ray disc that ports over the old DVD bonus material and adds a new audio commentary with writer-director Adam Green and actor Kane Hodder. With the behind-the-scenes details having been thoroughly covered in the DVD, there are few gaps to be filled, but the widescreen high-def transfer reminds us just how good this modestly budgeted film looks.
