Victor Crowley Lives Again
Picking up right where the original ended, Marybeth escapes the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling iconic killer Victor Crowley. After learning the truth about her family’s connection to the hatchet-wielding madman, Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact the bloodiest revenge against the bayou butcher.
Ok, so this is basically how this plays out:
- Opening gore: guy gets decapitated by his own intestines.
-Lots of blablabla with useless backstory and bucketloads of Tony Todd's wonderful voice.
- Bunch of rednecks accompany the 'I have one facial expression' lead actress. I'm falling asleep here.......and then:
FACE BASHING!! FACE MULCHING!! MOST HOLARIOUS SEX SCENE EVER!! bit of plot DECAPITATIONS!! CASTRATION BY THE BIGGEST CHAINSAW EVER!! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!! SPIDERS!! DEATH BY SANDPAPER!! bit of plot WHY DOES THE BAD GUY LOOK LIKE SLOTH FROM THE GOONIES!! huh...plot twist?? MORE HATCHET CHOPPING!! OH MY GOD AN AUTHENTIC SPINE PULLING SCENE!! OH MY GOD IT'S JUST AMAZ ...oh..it's over...
Good, clean, wholesome family fun.
Not a big fan of the Marybeth cast change. However Adam Green is great at giving us a story with characters you grow to like, only to watch them all die. Some very creative ways to use a Hatchet, some really funny moments, and a good sequel to the original. I like part 2, but I really like part 1.
I still haven’t seen the first Hatchet film but the sequel is still easy enough to follow without prior knowledge, particularly as the film gives a quick origin story to the legend of Victor Crowley. This Adam Green movie is a throwback to the type of slasher movies that favoured inventive kills and a knowing tone rather than coherent plotting and building an effective atmosphere. Whilst I prefer out and out horror films rather than these horror-comedy hybrids I sort of enjoyed Hatchet II simply for its gusto in delivering over the top and implausible murder sequences.
Heads split in half, strangulation by intestines and jaws being ripped off - the film features more exaggerated killings in its opening ten…
"You gotta be fucking kidding me!"
Man, these movies are really boring in the first two thirds. The first kill comes at the 53 minute mark, again not counting some quick gory bits at the beginning, like a jaw being ripped off and a head being split in half vertically. Those 53 minutes, bar the gory bits of course, are so uneventful and stupid that I was ready to call this one of the worst movies I've seen in quite some time. The only mildly intriguing thing was Danielle Harris' right eyebrow. There's even less boobs than in the first. But once the blood starts covering the trees, the movie has a better footing and is a hell of a…
Sometimes, as humans, we love things too much. These things probably don't deserved to be loved this much, but we do it anyway. These things should be measured on a scale beyond 'Good or Bad'.
This is how I feel about the Hatchet franchise.
Hatchet 2 is bloody marvellous. With emphases on the bloody.
Come on, you hatchet-faced fuck!
Call me crazy but I loved this schlockfest. It's a fun send off of 80s horror films with over-the-top hilarious gore and average-to-bad acting. The movie actually does have genuinely funny moments mixed in with the bad taste. Even when it goes for serious moments, it goes out of it's way for it to be so bad it's good. However, this film and it's predecessor aren't "saving horror" by any means like some reviews claim.
Figuring out why each actor was cast is almost as entertaining as the film itself. Almost every actor is from an iconic or cult horror film. It's like watching a horror film convention. You have the obvious from the…
For the baby Jesus scene alone.
Man, the writer sucked the fun out of this one
Pues ahora llega su secuela que no vio la luz en las salas de cine y esta vez en manos de mi productora de cine independiente de terror favorita Dimension Films. Ahora viene con el “honor” de que la película coloca el nombre de su creador en el titulo inicial como lo hiciera John Carpenter en su Halloween.
¿Una nueva generación de Slasher? Quien sabe, si bien es cierto esta secuela tiene más presupuesto que su antecesora no quiere decir que sea una super secuela, es más de lo mismo solo que tiene a un mega personaje en él y no es Crowley, me refiero a la aparición de Tom Holland (director de Child´s Play 1988) como uno más del…
Hatchet II literally starts where the last left off when Marybeth looks for a local voodoo man named Reverend Zombie to help her find serial killer Victor Crowley in order to avenge the death of her father and brother from the first movie. Zombie then hires a group of locals to find the killer although they have no idea of his ulterior motives. Marybeth’s uncle comes along for moral support and is totally and rightfully suspicious about Zombie. It turns out that Zombie wants to use these guys as bait so Crowley can he can get his revenge and stop killing. Because you guys needed more supernatural stuff. Although in that first movie, there’s a whole thing about how Victor…
A perfect sequel for a party film.
Secondo episodio (che riprende dal cliffhanger del primo) del deforme Victor Crowley e della sua palude nella Luisiana. Le fonte principale d'ispirazione (come del resto il precedente episodio) è certamente Venerdì 13, con le sue atmosfere limacciose, salmastre e cupe; ma c'è da dire che il mostro assomiglia prepotentemente ad un altro cattivone che infestava i mitici slasher ottantiani: Madman. Detto questo il film non è che funzioni granché, con un lungo e un po' monotono preambolo, un'ultima parte che lascia un po' insoddisfatti, anche per colpa dei personaggi messi in campo (anche se c'è una scena...) ed un umorismo che non punge. Gli effetti sono la parte più golosa,ma non riescono da soli a sopperire alle lacune troppo evidenti.
I had high hopes after the first Hatchet movie, but like 98% of horror sequels aren't that great, so I guess I'm not too let-down.
An improvement on its predecessor, as it almost had to be. The biggest step up is the addition of Danielle Harris in the lead role, ever a bastion of unnecessarily good acting in crappy horror movies since her days as a child actress in the Halloween series. Between her, an expanded role for Tony Todd and a new character played capably by Tom Holland (who is better known by horror buffs as a director than an actor, but hey), Hatchet II almost feels like it has real human being and stakes at the centre of it, despite another dipshit screenplay from writer/director Adam Green.
I'm not disposed too harshly towards Green, though. He learned a lot between movies, and dialled…
The gore effects look way cheaper this time around, but the movie itself is more entertaining than it's predecessor.
