This is a considerable improvement over Hatchet 2. I don't even know what it was that made this film so much better than its prequel, because,… More

Surprisingly better than than Hatchet 2. Hatchet 3 seems the return of Victor Crowley who after presumably killed by Marybeth, has resurrected because of a… More

Well first off, It's a Hatchet movie, so of course I'm going to give it 5 stars. So Hacthet III begins right where the second one left off, and… More

I'm not expecting high art from 'The Hatchet' series. Green is attempting a throwback to the Friday the 13th series of the 80's and for the… More
