Product Overview

Get ready for one of the most talked-about, red-blooded American horror movies of the past 20 years! When a group of New Orleans tourists take a cheesy haunted swamp tour, they slam face-first into the local legend of deformed madman Victor Crowley. What follows is a psycho spree of seat-jumping scares, eye-popping nudity, skull-splitting mayhem and beyond. Joel David Moore (Dodgeball), Deon Richmond (Scream 3) and Mercedes McNab (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) star - along with horror icons Tony Todd (Candyman), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th) - in this screamingly funny carnage classic that Fangoria hails as "a no-hold-barred homage to the days when slasher films were at their reddest and wettest!"

Review In the post-Scream era, it's been almost as tough for horror filmmakers to create effective slasher movies as it was for Hollywood to produce convincing Westerns after Blazing Saddles. Yet just as that genre rose from the (artistic if not commercial) ashes with masterpieces from the likes of Clint Eastwood, Walter Hill, and Lawrence Kasdan, the far less reputable slasher flick has been reinvigorated in the last couple of years by a group of talented fans-turned-filmmakers. Eli Roth injected satire on contemporary American foreign policy into the mix with the Hostel films, Rob Zombie fused horror conventions with those of the Western for the masterful The Devil's Rejects, and Scott Glosserman deconstructed slasher cliches with wit and irony in the self-conscious Behind the Mask. Now we have Adam Green's Hatchet, a horror movie in the tradition of Friday the 13th and all its imitators that pretends the last ten years never happened. It plays its conventions straight, an approach that keeps it from working on as many levels as Zombie and Glosserman's films, but which ultimately yields its own rewards. It won't win any converts to the genre, but for people who are already fans Hatchet delivers the goods and then some, and Green's honest passion for the form in which he's working is admirable.

Chuck Wilson, LA Weekly ...so giddily over-the-top that you end up applauding the low-budget aplomb of it all.
Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle ...terrifically retro...revisit[s] the heyday of Eighties gore films with such gleeful, moist abandon.
