I’m not a huge fan of the Hatchet series, but saying that, I’m pretty stoked to check out the third installment in the series. For those of you who missed its original theatrical run this past June will be pleased to know that the film is hitting home video this August 13th, and we have all the details.
From the Press Release:
Victor Crowley is back in HATCHET III, the new installment in the horror series about the swamp dweller who slices and guts his luckless victims apart. Kane Hodder returns as the hideously deformed Victor Crowley and Danielle Harris again plays the intrepid heroine Marybeth in the new movie, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from Dark Sky Films on August 13, 2013. The film will be available in both R-rated and unrated director’s cut editions. The Blu-ray has an SRP of $34.98 and the DVD will be priced at $27.98.
Concluding the saga begun in Adam Green’s hit 2006 thriller, HATCHET III follows the vengeful Marybeth (Halloween’s Danielle Harris) as she continues seeking out a way to destroy Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday the 13th), a hulking, seemingly-invincible sociopath rampaging through a sleepy Louisiana swamp.
While a heavily-armed team of mercenaries takes to the bayou surrounding Crowley’s home, Marybeth finds herself begrudgingly teaming up with a local policeman (Gremlins star Zach Galligan) and his ex-wife (Caroline Williams, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) – an expert on the maniac who may have uncovered the secret to ending his murderous rampage once and for all.
The directorial debut of acclaimed cameraman BJ McDonnell (Jack Reacher, Killer Joe), the action/horror sequel HATCHET III opened theatrically on June 14, 2013.
