Hatchet II Scream queen Danielle Harris takes over the role originated by Tamara Feldman in writer/director Adam Green's eagerly anticipated sequel to the retro horror hit that introduced audiences to Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder), a psychotic, hideously deformed swamp-dweller who doesn't take kindly to uninvited guests. Picking up precisely where its bloody precursor left off, Hatchet II finds Marybeth (Harris) in a boat, struggling to escape from Crowley's crushing grip after seeing all of her friends get brutally slaughtered in a Louisiana swamp. Miraculously, she manages to fight her way free and find her way back to New Orleans, where she seeks out the ominous Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd), the voodoo-shop proprietor who organized her doomed tour of the marshland. Later, after assembling a small squad of rugged hunters, Reverend Zombie accompanies Marybeth back into the bog on a mission to track down Crowley, and finally close the book on his brutal legend. But the further the group ventures into the slough, the more apparent it becomes that Reverend Zombie may have a hidden agenda.
Hatchet III Traumatized Marybeth (Danielle Harris) faces off against deformed psychopath Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) once again in this gory sequel that finds director B.J. McDonnell taking over the reins from series originator Adam Green, who penned the screenplay. Having just turned Victor Crowley's head into raw hamburger with a point-blank shotgun blast, tormented heroine Marybeth must once more fight for her life when the deformed maniac resurrects yet again. Fortunately for Marybeth, a well-placed chainsaw rips Crowley clean in two, allowing her the opportunity to make her way to the closest police station, where Sheriff Fowler (Zach Galligan) is contending with drunken Mardi Gras revelers. Drenched in blood and carrying Crowley's scalp, Marybeth is quickly hosed down and locked up in a cell. As Sheriff Fowler heads to Honey Island Swamp with his best men to investigate, his ex-wife, disgraced reporter Amanda (Caroline Williams) convinces Deputy Winslow (Robert Diago DoQui) to let her question Marybeth. Meanwhile in the swamp, Crowley descends upon the first responders tasked with cleaning up the shocking scene. With half the force heading in as back-up, Amanda realizes that they key to defeating Crowley may lie in his father's remains, and talks Deputy Winslow into bringing Marybeth along as they head to a nearby town to retrieve them. By the time Amanda, Deputy Winslow, and Marybeth arrive in the swamp to confront Crowley, the madman has already massacred most of the police as well as a heavily armed swat team led by the fearless Hawes (Derek Mears). Should their bold plan fail, the trio will certainly die horribly. With no options left, they venture into the darkness to confront the legend that never dies.
