Hatchet: Blu-ray review

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.

The second biggest crime is that HATCHET was trimmed to earn an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of [...]

The movie is an unapologetic throwback to 1980s [...]
