Blu-ray Review: Hatchet III – Unrated Director’s Cut

Hatchet IIIHatchet III
Unrated Director’s Cut
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by BJ McDonnell
Starring Danielle Harris, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams
Dark Sky Films
Release Date: August 13, 2013

The latest installment of Adam Green‘s extra-bloody slasher movie saga Hatchet III has arrived in full force on Blu-ray, but unlike the first two movies, Green did not direct this one. He both wrote and produced the new movie, but decided prior to filming to hand directing duties off to newcomer BJ McDonnell – Green’s cinematographer on the first two Hatchet movies. When the original premiered on the film festival circuit in late 2006 and arrived briefly in theaters and on home video a year later, horror fans who had long been swamped by turgid remakes and watered-down PG-13 studio offerings lapped up every drop of crimson grue dripping from its celluloid frames. Though far, far from being a box office success, Hatchet‘s explosive popularity with fans warranted the requisite sequel.

Arriving almost five years later and with little of the fanfare that greeted the original when it debuted, Hatchet II briefly wormed its way into the national mindset once the news broke that it had been pulled from most theater chains due its being released without an MPAA rating. The seemingly manufactured controversy (which reminded me of the mild uproar over homophobic slurs used in Eli Roth’s first Hostel movie that was kept alive on the letters page of Fangoria for a brief period in 2006 mostly through the efforts of the director himself) couldn’t help Hatchet II build a fraction of the cult following earned by its predecessor and overall audience reaction was unimpressive. However, it did well enough for a prospective third movie to get the green light, which brings us to the present day and Hatchet III.

Hatchet III

The latest in a low-budget slasher franchise that kicked off with a bang over six years ago and whose first sequel encountered controversy during its brief, unrated theatrical run, Hatchet III is about to unleash some more gruesome carnage and sick fun this summer. MPI/Dark Sky Films have announced the movie’s release date and unveiled its first teaser trailer.

You can watch the trailer here below.

Hatchet III, which marks the directorial debut of BJ McDonnell (a camera operator on the first two movies as well as last summer’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), was filmed in Louisiana in May and June of 2012. Back for the third installment are Danielle Harris as the series’ resilient heroine Marybeth and slasher icon Kane Hodder as the monstrous backwoods psychopath Victor Crowley. Joining the cast for this latest bout of gory mayhem are Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Mears (the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Diane Ayala Goldner (Feast), and Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), among others. Original writer and director Adam Green wrote the screenplay and executive produced.

Must Watch: First Trailer For Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Predators’ Released

The Movie God   |  @   |

Predators

As promised, a trailer for the Robert Rodriguez produced and Nimród Antal directed reboot, Predators, has been unleashed online.

The trailer is pretty awesome and it begins by showing us the group of humans after they’ve first been brought to this mysterious jungle planet. After that, you’ll get to peek at each of the cast and see a lot of tense moments as the humans fight to survive, as well as a few peeks at the vicious Predators who are hunting them. Overall, it’s a very effective trailer; it looks like they nailed the tone of 1987’s Predator while adding some nasty new creatures and a hell of a lot more of them than the one deadly alien from the original film.

Remain in the shadows and cautiously make your way over to the other side to watch the first trailer for Predators!

Movie Review: Friday The 13th (2009)

Friday the 13th
Directed by Marcus Nispel
Starring Derek Mears, Jared Padalecki, Julianna Guill, America Olivo, Amanda Righetti, Danielle Panabaker
Rated R
Release date: February 13, 2009

Friday the 13th, the latest horror classic to get the Platinum Dunes treatment, is not just a remake but also a reboot and in several ways a re-imagining. Directed by Marcus Nispel, the same dude who helmed the unnecessary 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the latest installment in the kill-tastic adventures of Jason Voorhees takes some of the most memorable elements of the first four movies and remixes them while bringing a few fresh ideas of its own to the table. Best of all, it brings Jason back to where he truly belong, stalking horny teenagers in the woods surrounding Camp Crystal Lake. After all, when the guy’s been killed more times than Rasputin, traveled the universe from New York City to deep space, and battled fellow franchise slasher Freddy Krueger, what else can he do?

I’ve been a fan of the series for years and I have to say that each Friday movie has always been addictive viewing for me. Ever since I watched the original on the local horror movie show “Dr. Gruesome’s Movie Morgue” when I was nine years old I rarely pass up an opportunity to watch Jason strap on his facial armor and go kill crazy on some dumbass campers. The movies are tons of fun for the undiscriminating horror fan. Some are more violent and gory than others but in a way the Friday series has always been pretty nihilistic. We can be assured that most of the characters in each movie will be dead as fried chicken by the final frames and as fans we can’t help but get a deranged charge from that. This is pure Grand Guignol theater gone mainstream, and like any addiction we just can’t get enough.

Geeks of Doom Invade New York Comic Con 2009

One interesting panel at this year’s New York Comic Con was the one for the brand new Friday the 13th re-imagining. The movie opens in less than a week, which isn’t the kind of movie you see at the conventions, but consider it a little appetizer to the film — something to make you hungry for Friday, February 13, 2009.

Right off the bat, they showed the trailer for the movie and director Marcus Nispel introduced stars Jared Padalecki and Jason Voorhees himself, Derek Mears.

Next up was right into the exclusive footage, where they showed the first six minutes or so of the movie. There’s not a whole lot to describe because everyone needs to just go see it, but let’s just say they go right into the pre-marital sex and violence and there’s a hell of a lot of screaming involved. All the ingredients that help make Friday the 13th what it is. If you really must know what transpires in the beginning of the film, then check the bottom of this post for the spoiler.

After watching the beginning of the movie, was the audience Q&A session.
