Editorial Reviews

There's probably no better visceral creep-out than a close-up eye gouging (just ask Luis Buñuel). Director Adam Green learned this well by using the old thumb-in-socket shot as the climax of his 2006 cult hit Hatchet, and he repeats it as the opener of Hatchet II. This micro-budget sequel picks up just as the original ends, with the aforementioned eye still belonging to the deformed swamp monster Victor Crowley (again played by ace stuntman and Friday the 13th alumni Kane Hodder). The thumb belongs to demure Marybeth (Danielle Harris), who turns out to be the sole survivor of the first film's tour-boat cruise through Louisiana's most disgusting swamp. She escapes Crowley's one-eyed clutches and finds her way back to New Orleans and the lair of voodoo conman Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd, of Candyman fame), where a posse of redneck morons is quickly assembled to return to the swamp and squash the innards and legend of Victor Crowley for good.

All this Victor Crowley and innards-squashing business will be familiar to fans of Hatchet, of which there are legions. Indeed, it feels as though Green has made Hatchet II as a love letter to them, raising the bloody-disgusting body count and creative means of murder--outboard motor, super-size chainsaw, belt sander--strictly to satisfy an urge felt only by the supremely devoted. Billed as an unrated director's cut, the DVD version will surely send them swooning with even more latex guts and buckets of Kool-Aid-colored blood than they might remember from midnight theatrical shows. Even the commentary tracks and making-of documentary are filled with backslaps dedicated to the exclusive Hatchet groupie club. Green is intentionally riffing on slasher films not only with the comic dialogue and dopey characters, but also by employing icons of the genre as actors. In addition to Hodder and Todd, Tom Holland, director of fanboy favorites Fright Night and Child's Play, turns up in another key role. Unfortunately, Green's sense of insider humor and commitment to a limited demographic seems to have clouded what could have been a more interesting movie. But you're probably not watching Hatchet II to see an interesting movie. You're watching to see a giddy homage to the glory days of practical gore effects and enjoy the goofy fun of howling at senseless characters that lose their heads and countless other body parts in ever more creative ways. --Ted Fry

Product Description

Hatchet II picks up right where the original Hatchet ends, as the quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris, Halloween) barely escapes from the clutches of the mysterious Crowley ( Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday The 13th), who has already has murdered all of Marybeth's friends and other vacationers in the New Orleans' swamp country. Marybeth recruits a team of hired guns and returns to the bayou to exact her revenge, but quickly discovers that even with an army of hunters at her side, the murderous fury of Crowley cannot be contained. Ultimately, it will be up to Marybeth alone to defeat the seemingly indestructible Crowley, but not before learning the truth about a twisted secret he shares with her own family! Filled with "buckets of giddily over-the-top blood 'n' guts" (The Hollywood Reporter), not to mention a "funky, frisky sense of humor" (The Onion AV Club), the unrated Hatchet II serves up a ferocious and furious dose of splatterific entertainment--just like in old days!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SEQUEL February 12, 2011
Format:DVD
MAY CONTAIN MINOR PLOT SPOILERS. The movie opens with Marybeth escaping from the monster Victor Crowley. She is helped by one-eye Jack. Later Jack discovers Marybeth is a Dunstan and orders her out and to go talk to Rev. Zombie. Victor shows up at Jack's shack, rips out his intestine then uses it as a cord to pop off his head. The killing and gore in this movie can best be described as "Troma" style. Every death scene hits a major squirting artery. This beginning scene also has the bulk of the movie's nudity as Jack views a found video camera.

Marybeth, who is perhaps the worst at acting in this film, visits Rev. Zombie (Tony Todd) who explains how Victor Crowley became a ghost/legend/killer with a remarkable story telling voice aka the James Earl Jones of horror movies. As it turns out, Zombie's boat was lost in Honey Island Swamp. He forms a posse (including one hot blond for one last nude/sex scene) to retrieve his boat and to kill Victor Crowley once and for all.

People die in all kinds of ways as Crowley seems to have an endless supply of gasoline powered tools. Notice when faces are being smashed, they have a tendency to bounce back as if they are made of rubber. In the old house, where everything is grown over, there is a new door. Cletis was my favorite redneck character. He was realistic.

Caution: If you are an easily offended Christian, there is one scene (in addition to all the killing, gore and nudity) that you might find offensive. You will know it when you hear it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What A Hack Job! April 25, 2011
Format:DVD
I must say I really enjoyed Hatchet 2. Though originality is zip, I still found it somewhat refreshing. Essentially it's a rehash of the first film with the body count and the gore upped a notch. The survivor of the first film's massacre, Marybeth(here played by Danielle Harris) decides to go back to the swamp and take care of killer Victor Crowley once and for all. She gets Reverend Zombie(Tony Todd) to accompany her, and he rounds up a bunch of locals to go on the hunt. Of course Reverend Zombie has his own selfish reasons for going along on this shindig. And of course another massacre ensues.
I'm not gonna say that you'll like this film if you liked the first one, coz it seems as though many folks who liked the first one hated this one.
I though it was a lot of fun. In recent years there has been a tidal wave of horror films that claim to be in the style of 70/80 horror grindhouse cinema. I found most of these films to be failures through their use of CGI gore and sometimes MTV style editing. I'm not saying that the Hatchet films totally get it right in that department, but it's obvious that Adam Green is a huge fan of 80s slasher films, and has really put forth the effort to make a modern day 80s slasher film.....if that makes sense. It's not a spoof, nor is it a self referential "I know I'm in a slasher movie and I know the rules" kind of deal either. It plays the horror thing straight, but is also tongue in cheek at the same time. It's not laugh out loud funny, and many folks have complained about this. Personally I'm glad it's not funny. Yes, it has a few chuckles along the way-a film like this has to-but in the end we're dealing with gory, fun slasher movie schlock.
Folks have made comments about the "fake looking" effects.

Adam Green's slasher Hatchet (Unrated Director's Cut) (2006), ended unexpectedly with the character Marybeth, played by Tamara Feldman, being tossed into the swamp by crazed killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). Hatchet 2 (2010) picks up right where Hatchet ended, with Marybeth hitting the water, however the transition isn't exactly smooth, as Danielle Harris replaces Feldman, who does not reprise her role as Marybeth. The version of the film on DVD is "uncut and unrated", supposedly identical to that which played in theaters.

As in the first film, the best thing about Hatchet 2 are the kills, which are prodigious, extremely gory, and intended to go beyond what has been done before. The carnage is so excessive and over the top, that you become numb to the violence, as the film loses any ties to reality, becoming more of a bizarre spectacle, rather than a really horror thriller.

Marybeth escapes from the swamp and seeks help from Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd), the owner of the tour boat destroyed in first film. Zombie gathers together a group of assorted losers, puts a bounty of five grand on Crowley's head, and heads into the swamp on a boat with Justin (Parry Shen), the brother of the tour operator butchered in Hatchet. Marybeth has recruited her Uncle Bob (Tom Holland), to join the manhunt.

Much time was spent in Hatchet building up the mythology of Victor Crowley, a deformed freak who was accidentally killed by his father, when he plunged a hatchet into his head, while trying to rescue him from a cabin that was on fire.
