In August we posted the first trailer for Adam Green’s new film Hatchet II. It’s the sequel to the 2006 acclaimed slasher film that’s been praised by the horror community and said to have reinvented the genre. Now another trailer has been released for the film but this time it’s UNRATED and shows so much gory footage that you have to be a legal adult to watch it. Take a look…
Hatchet II is one of those sequels that pick up directly where the previous one left off, much like Halloween II (the original) and The Matrix Revolutions. The quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris) is in a small boat in the Louisiana swamps, screaming for her life as she tries to free herself from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). Crowley has murdered Marybeth’s family and other fellow vacationers who had come together on a tourist excursion in the swamplands outside of New Orleans.
Because of the extreme content in the first film U.S. audiences were shown a censored watered down version of the finished product. We wonder if the legend surrounding Hatchet and the word of mouth buzz will be enough to put Hatchet II on the map.
Did you see the first Hatchet? Are you interested in seeing the sequel?
