***1/2 out of ****    "Hatchet" belongs to a long list of movies where a giant, hulking humanoid monster pops out of nowhere and starts killing people. In this case, that monster is a disfigured mutant named Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder); and those people are an unlikely bunch that take a New Orleans swamp tour by boat, get stranded when it hits rocks and sinks, make way to land, and sooner or later, stare Victor Crowley in the face. You need not know much about this lot; other …

The Birth Of A New Horror Icon in a Mediocre Film?
No other film has received such mixed reviews more than “HATCHET” (2007) among my friends. Most of them, hated this film, while lately, it has began to achieve a minor cult following. “Hatchet” is the type of film that definitely depends on what you are looking for in a movie experience. I think a film requires somewhat of an acquired taste, but one thing, I have to say it is a homage to the 80’s “slasher” flicks and NOT to be taken seriously.   …

What's good about this? The gore is fantastic. The problem with this movie is that it is such a throwback to the 80's, it belongs there. If this film was released 20 years ago, I have no doubt that it would now be referred to as a classic. In 2007, though, this film feels too much like 'we've seen it all before.' The humor soon dries up, the best lines having been used within the first 20 minutes, and we are left with some groan worthy dialogue, which far out ways the few funny lines that are in …

I have to believe that "Hatchet" is a parody. No one in their right mind could have believed that a film so ridiculous could ever be taken seriously; everything about it is consistently hokey, from the acting to the plot to the dialogue to the sense of humor to the abundant horror movie clich├ęs. It had to be intentional for this movie to be so bad. Because I believe this to be true, I'll take a risk--a really big risk--and give it four stars. I say this because it's either one of the worst slasher …

This film takes place in New Orleans around mardi gras time... an assortment of folks end up on a swamp tour of death, entering the domain of "hatchet," a deformed killer who will ruthlessly slash and dismember his victims. The cast do a decent job within what they had to work with in this gory, unoriginal tale. The film is relatively short and the plot is focused in the 2nd half on who can escape the swamp before being grotesquely slain by the killer. There isn't really that much in the way of …

"Old fashioned" may be a relative term regarding horror movies, of whom I count myself a fan. But it gets harder and harder to find something I can really watch; unlike a lotta newbies to the genre, I really don't want to find the most bloody and realistic depiction of chainsaw massacres.    I like horror movies that surprise, that are clever, that are pure escapism. The worst and most horrific blood and gore isn't my idea of a horror movie. That's just stupid, or maybe I should …
