Hatchet

In Theatre : September 07, 2007
Director(s): Adam Green

Once there was a boy named Victor Crowley. He was born hideously deformed, and sadly, folks weren’t too kind to him. So he spent most of his life hidden in his Daddy’s house out in the bayou. One Halloween night, the local children came throwing firecrackers at the house to tease and scare him. And the old Crowley house caught fire.
 
When Victor’s Daddy arrived home, the house was in flames. He went to the barn, grabbed himself a hatchet, and started chopping down the front door. But what he didn’t know was that Victor was pressed up against the other side, trying to get out. He hit him square in the face with that hatchet... and poor Victor Crowley died.
 
The old man went into mourning and became a recluse after that. Never left the house. Never spoke to anyone. He finally passed away about ten years later. And that's when the stories started. They say people tend to disappear in that swamp. And if you get close enough to the old Crowley house at night you can still hear Victor Crowley. Still roaming in the woods. Still crying for his Daddy.

Hatchet Review by Goon

I have probably been following this movie a little too closely since its announcement at the SDCC a couple years back. With a cast that includes Tony Todd, Robert Englund and Kane Hodder you really can't go wrong.. or ca...

Hatchet (Unrated) Review by alex1176

"Hatchet" is an overrated slasher flick. A throwback to American 80's horror flicks, it has received rave reviews by horror critics, but don't believe them. No, "Hatchet" isn't crap like "See No Evil", but it's no better...

Hatchet Review by BlackTequilaKiss

I brought Hatchet just a short while ago and have never looked back. While the director/writer of the piece, Adam Green harks back to the era of 80's movies he manages to recreate it with so little fault that you le...

Hatchet Review by Suspiria_89

Hatchet is a direct to dvd horror movie that you can really enjoy if you don't take to seriously. It's really funny, has some great kills, and a lot of boobs. Hatchet is about a group of New Orleans tourist who take a ...
Hatchet Unrated (2007) Review by MacheteMassacre

Hatchet is a throw back to all of the things you loved in the 80's slasher movies...plus more. Displaying probably some of the most inventive, and gory, kills, Hatchet is a comedic horror that you'll want to watch over ...

Old school American Horror - I can agree with that. Hatchet was a pretty good film. It had the elements of classic horror and everything you would expect from a movie with this type of subject matter. The deformed boy lo...
Hatchet Review by Constantce

Hatchet is bloody bliss, sadistic silliness, and carnal craziness.   Adam Greene has succeeded in creating a memorable killer in part due to his catchy name, Victor Crowley.  Victor is played by Kane Hodde...
Hatchet Review by DeathbyHighKick

Hatchet, one of those horror films that suceed where others fail....dropping the "serious horror" that movies such as "The Hills have Eyes 1 & 2" have and bring some humor into the mix, not to mention an off the...
Hatchet Review by Googopqp

Hatchet is a slasher in the true spirit of the 80's. This movie really does it right. Not only is the movie kewl in that aspect but it also offers great gore and one of the greatest decapitations I've ever seen. Hatche...
