Adam Green's Hatchet II picks up at the exact moment where 2006's Hatchet ends, wherein the quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris) is in a small boat in the Louisiana swamps, screaming for her life as she tries to free herself from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). Crowley has murdered Marybeth's family and other fellow vacationers who had come together on a tourist excursion in the swamp lands outside of New Orleans.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is basically an excuse to watch skulls crushed like melons, guts ripped from body cavities and torsos halved. And such things go on with relentless and disgusting regularity."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Suffers from lamentable acting, murky cinematography and, for the most part, lamely unfunny dialogue."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Once you get past its relentless gore, Hatchet II just isn't a very good movie, and Green's struggles to get it released are far more interesting than the movie itself."
‑ Josh Bell, Filmcritic.com
"Certainly gory and goofy at times, but nearly as amusing as the first, riddled with unlikable characters, lazy dialogue and a dull middle act."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Mosquitoes bite. Gators tear. But only Victor Crowley strangles a man with his own intestines until his head explodes."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Boxoffice Magazine
"Swift and amusingly brainless, Hatchet II more than delivers on splatter expectations."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Unnecessary back story, toilet humor, and overlong gags involving gore, yes, this is a sequel to "Hatchet" alright!"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It goes for the jocular jugular, and if you want to see the human body mutilated in clever and amusing ways than this is the film for you."
‑ Beth Accomando, KPBS.org
"More of the same, which means you probably already know if you like it. (I did.)"
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Say a prayer that there's no Hatchet III in the future."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"The movie is never as cheeky or as fun as Green thinks it is, but he tries with all his might."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Not even a gnarly beheading can rescue this chop job"
‑ Corey Hall, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"[A] spurious waste of time... empty and meaningless, even grading on the amateurish-low-budget-horror curve..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
""Hatchet II" falls prey to a problem that typically plagues sequels: it's not just more of the same; it's WAY more of the same."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
