Film | The ‘Hatchet’ Franchise

It all began in 2006, with a warning to stay out of the swamp…


Soon, everyone would know the name Victor Crowley. Unfortunately, I have yet to see this movie, but I was able to watch Hatchet II (2010) and Hatchet III (2013) on Netflix. I want to say that I’d heard of these before and just never got the chance to watch them. Nope, not even that cool. Really stumbled upon them after they were added to Netflix, which I’ve started watching a lot more of due to cutting that ol’ cable cord.

It’s definitely one of my new favorite slasher franchises, and I love my slasher flicks–especially ’80s slasher flicks; but Victor Crowley, played brilliantly in all three films by Kane Hodder, is definitely worth the exception. Not to mention, the introduction of Danielle Harris into the franchise after some disagreement regarding the personal/professional choices of Tamara Feldman (the originating Marybeth Dunston) by Adam Green. Too bad for Tamara, but awesome for Danielle. It will be strange seeing Marybeth played by Tamara when I finally get around to seeing the first installment, but that must have been how folks felt upon seeing Danielle in the second.

Regardless, it’s bloody, relentless, and damn near gruesome in the amount of blood that just gets tossed about willy-nilly, and Victor is a huge fan of spinal columns… Just to let you know. No spoilers or anything, but just an FYI.
