Spooptober Day 27: Hatchet
Starring: Kane Hodder, Tamara Feldman, and Joel David Moore
Written and Directed by: Adam Green
I really like Adam Green, he's not Joe Begos, but I like him. I really like his movie Frozen (no, not that one). However, I wanted to talk about his slasher movie Hatchet.
I said in my Friday the 13th Part VI review that I don't like Kane Hodder's Jason. I stand by that. I do enjoy Kane in Hatchet though. Plus, if you're a Kane Hodder fan, you get two Kane Hodders for the price of one.
The movie opens with Freddy Krueger and his son hunting for gators in a swamp. That is until Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) comes up and kills them. Hey look, it's a Freddy vs. Jason movie too. Freddy Krueger's daughter heads into the swamp to look for her brother and dad. Of course, the swamp is where Victor Crowley lives.
Hatchet isn't the greatest movie ever, but it was a hardcore slasher film in an era where no one really expected to get another one of those. The deaths are brutal, which is exactly what you're looking for in a slasher film.
If you haven't seen this one yet, I highly recommend it.
