And you have to admit, "Hatchet" never pretends to be anything it's not -- a horror movie in the classic slasher vein, with lots of blood and dismemberment. Adam Green doesn't do anything we haven't seen before, but he does it with such gleeful enjoyment. And gloriously satirical dialogue ("Your nipples are dumb!").
A bunch of guys are at Mardi Gras, enjoying the beer, beads and breasts. Ben (Joel Moore) is depressed about a recent breakup, so he decides to drag his pal Marcus (Deon Richmond) on a haunted boat trip. Since the main guides no longer do night tours, Ben and Marcus end up on a tiny boat with two dumb tourists, two softcore porn actresses, their "producer," and a mystery girl with a gun.
But then the newbie guide accidentally runs them into a rock, and they run afoul of gaters. And then Marybeth (Tamara Feldman) reveals the horrifying truth -- she's there to find her brother and father, who vanished in this same swamp. Supposedly it's haunted by the ghost of Victor Crowley, a horribly deformed boy who was accidentally killed by his father during a fire.
Of course, nobody buys this until a grotesque creature comes jumping out of the old Crowley house and hacks up the tourists with a hatchet. Terrified, the people go running through the woods, with Victor hot in pursuit -- and their only hope of escape is to get back to New Orleans. But how can they escape someone who cannot be killed?
Again, this has all been done before -- think "Halloween" meets "Friday the 13th," with dashes of other horror classics thrown in there.Read more ›
This slasher flick was better than most because there was plenty of humor, courtesy of Ben and Marcus and the porn queens, and it doesn't take itself too seriously; Ben and Marcus are the kind of guys who would make wise cracks all through a movie like this. There's actually a good story here and the one-by-one killings are all done differently and, mercifully, quickly. If you like things that go bump in the night and actually enjoy people being eviscerated, this is the movie for you.
was the first and only movie other than JAWS that when I saw it made me say: I want this film. The storyline
is a bit shaky BUT the characters are done perfectly in accordance to typical horror movie personalities. You got the cool guy whose scared out of wits, the pretty girl who is actually a strong character, you have the dumb blonde who is actually realistically stupid compared to girls her age nowadays, the 'hero' who is an optimistic nerd, the bitch who goes after the blonde constantly, the sleezeball who doesn't really do anything, and the happy go lucky characters who dump their good natures and start screaming at everybody. The atmosphere of the movie is perfect. This movie is actually realistic when it comes to parts.
It's a crappy tour boat ride that no one really knows about going off into the swamp that's not advertised
and stuff goes down. The tour guide doesn't really know what he's doing. Right there even down in the parts
of the acting if you went on this boat for example would you expect anything less? Some would call it bad acting
but remember the 'funny parts' when the tour boat guy doesn't not what he's doing I find it adds to the movie as
appose to actually ruining it.
This type of movie is rare in this day and age. Low budget horror films are buried underneath the crap that's
spewed out today. The quality of horror films today has gone down so much it's ridiculous. Today I feel like I'm
watching a porno movie because there's usually just as much boobs and nudity in them. Hatchet was made in this same
era but it keep the nudity to a minimum. Add this one to your library and def check it out.
