Consensus: Funnier and more gleefully gory than most slasher sequels, Hatchet II aims for so-bad-it's-good territory, but can't quite hack it.

The movie is never as cheeky or as fun as Green thinks it is, but he tries with all his might.

Not even a gnarly beheading can rescue this chop job

In keeping with the tradition of the first, Hatchet II is a great and gory throwback to the good old days of 80's slashers. The story is fairly similar to… More

Sequel to the awesome Hatchet, Hatchet II picks ups where the first one left off. Though lacking the fire of the original, Hatchet II is still an engaging… More
