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.

Mosquitoes bite. Gators tear. But only Victor Crowley strangles a man with his own intestines until his head explodes.

Say a prayer that there's no Hatchet III in the future.

More of the same, which means you probably already know if you like it. (I mostly did.)

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.

The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement.

Unnecessary back story, toilet humor, and overlong gags involving gore, yes, this is a sequel to "Hatchet" alright!

A very simple follow up continuing from the same night as the first. Just another quick excuse for lots of extreme gore and kills with a very weak story line.… More

Inevitable letdown will hopefully grow more enjoyable with age. Merits of bringing Danielle Harris in are debatable, as her acting style appears to have been… More

While the first "Hatchet" isn't a classic by any stretch, it is a good homage(there's that word again Bob) to slasher movies. Victor… More

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

I remember watching the first Hatchet, but I do not remember reviewing it on this website. I mean I did review it, I just have no recollection of it. But… More
