After all the hoopla surrounding the theatrical release of Adam Green’s Hatchet II, the slighted slasher will finally be on DVD and Blu Ray where it belongs. If you missed it in theaters (and you probably did) you’ll have your chance to pick up Hatchet II On February 1st. I myself am not a fan of the Hatchet movies, I got burned when I blind bought the first one due to all the positive things I’d heard from the internet. But once I got around to watching it, I was pretty unimpressed. That was the first Adam Green movie I had seen and it sort of skewed my expectations of his future work. I am pleased to report that since then I’ve seen Spiral and Frozen, both of which I enjoyed far better than Hatchet. I wish Green would get away from that over the top horror and get into something more cerebral and in turn maybe get a bigger budget. I’d love to see him direct something with a bigger budget that didn’t cater to the lowest common denominator. On a completely contradictory note to that last sentence, here’s Danielle Harris taking a shower!
Remember kids, get Hatchet II (seemingly with more Tony Todd, which is nice) on February 1st 2011! Did I mention it’s unrated? Check out the official site HERE. Old school American horror and whatnot.
