Hatchet (2006)

Rating: ★★★★★

Wow! Two 5 star reviews in a row… That’s a first.

I have to start with the tagline… “It’s not a remake, It’s not a sequel and it’s not based on a Japanese one.” Brilliant…

All you need to know is on the movie poster, including the part about “old school American horror” and “stay out of the swamp”. There is nothing overly special about this movie. There are no great ‘twists’ or ‘creative’ kills. Hell, there’s not even any new and improved uses for the hatchet. You would at least think they would sneak that in there. After all, they named the movie Hatchet. What the movie does have is pretty darn good writing and pretty darn believable acting. It also has Robert Englund; you can’t go wrong with that.

The plot? A group of tourists take a nightime tour of the Louisiana Bayou. The boat skinks and hilarity ensues (or something like that…). The point? Go see this movie.

  • I love the way you write and also the theme on your blog. Did you code this yourself or was it done by a professional? I’m very very impressed.
