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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
