Meet the "Hatchet" Fodder

With director Adam Green’s slasher film coming out in limited release on Friday, September 7th, now's as good as time as any to meet the Hatchet fodder: those poor innocent (and not-so-innocent) victims who take a Louisiana swamp tour right into the clutches of mutilated killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). The quotes come from interviews we conducted with the actors at San Diego Comic-Con or (in the case of Joel David Moore) over the phone.(read more...)

Final "Hatchet" Poster

Hatchet Poster (Final)

Anchor Bay has released a new poster for their upcoming theatrical release Hatchet. The new art isn't that different than the old art; the main differences are the tagline at the top ("It's not a remake, it's not a sequel...") has been changed to Harry Knowles' quote about Victor Crowley and the axe has been subtly altered to increase its impressiveness.

Hatchet comes out in limited release on September 7th. Find out where you can see it at the official Hatchet website.

How can you support Green's ambitious project? Two ways.(read more...)

Robert Englund Interview

"Hatchet" Director Adam Green Interview

Director Adam Green's Hatchet is making waves in the horror community more for what it isn't than what it is: it's not a remake, it's not a sequel, and it's not PG-13. It's an honest-to-gosh R-rated slasher movie, starring honest-to-gosh horror icons Kane Hodder, Robert Englund, and Tony Todd, about a group of tourists who run afoul of  Victor Crowley (Hodder), a deformed killer who haunts the bayous of Louisiana. The film's fans have built the "Hatchet Army" to show their support for fresh material on the silver scream. Television star Milo Ventimiglia could be seen in a Hatchet Army t-shirt during the "Heroes" panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and after witnessing the Hatchet panel (check out Julia's full report) at the same convention, I'm ready to get a shirt for myself.(read more...)
