    Synopsis


    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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      If you're familiar with the Hatchet series, but were somehow worried that Adam Green stepping away from directing duties would downgrade it... Don't worry. His handpicked successor, as well as his involvement, gave the initial trilogy it's wonderful ending. (In fact, this may be my favorite in the entire series). The ending film in the initial trilogy (a 4th film, Victor Crowley, arrived recently) pulls out all the stops, involving Crowley, the police, AND a SWAT team called in for backup. The homages and love for old horror icons continues- Caroline Williams, ("Stretch" Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2,) Sid Haig, (Galaxy of Terror, House of 1000 Corpses,) and Zach Galligan (Gremlins, Waxwork) all play memorable or major roles, and Adam Green himself features in a couple funny scenes. The entire Hatchet series is a bloody (VERY) bloody mess filled with memorable, over the top kills, meta awareness, amazing roles & cameos by the actors & actresses that helped define the slasher & gory good times of the 80s, and a recurring joke in all three (AND 4th, going outside the original trilogy,) that can only be appreciated by seeing them all. Despite Green's departure (as director) in this 3rd film, which caused so much concern, his involvement shines through, all while giving that OT a very proper, spectacular conclusion that may even outdo the two predecessors. It's a must own at an incredible value. Now, if you're a horror fan that's unfamiliar with the Hatchet series, there's two things to say: 1- shame on you, and 2- rectify it now.

      Hatchet: The Final Chapter

      Let me get this point out, I loved the all three of the Hatchet movies. They have the feel of the slasher films of the 1980s, like Friday the 13th, but do not ease up on the gore. This is great for any horror film fan. The first was the best, and like most sequels, quality corrodes over time. This film might be the weakest of the three, but it still is a good conclusion to a throwback slasher series. This next paragraph may contain spoilers. SPOILER ALERT: This third installment begins where the second leaves off. Mary Beth (once again played by Danielle Harris) just finished killing Crowley. Despite shooting, smashing, chain sawing and scalping him, Crowley is destined to return to the physical state he was the night he died. Mary Beth walks into police station, which is still getting over Mardi gras, only to cause more problems. They think she is caused the murders and hold her prisoner. Meanwhile the police arrive to Honey Island swamp to find out the legend of Victor Crowley is all too real. ----END OF SPOILERS. My favorite part of the movie is the comedic relief provided by horror icon Sid Haig. While many might construe it as offensive, I thought it was very affective device to bring relevant comic relief. Another part I really enjoyed was the fight scene between Kane Hodder and Derek Mears, in a "Jason Voorhees" vs. "Jason Voorhees". The duration and outcome of which might surprise some viewers. There are also many surprises in casting that would surprise many of the fans of the series. Of course this movie will not win any Academy Awards, and is not meant to. It is a simple and fun movie with creative kills and a lot of blood. It is a shame that Adam Green would not direct the film, but he was supposedly very involved in the filmmaking process. Overall, I would recommend this to any horror fan. But beware to enjoy this movie you must view the other Hatchet films first!

      You know what you are getting with the Hatchet films. We are not exactly reinventing the wheel here. Hatchet III is a modern slasher that embraces old school sensibilities of practical effects. We tune in to see what fresh brutal way Victor Crowley does in his victims. IT is a film that has those light moments that give you a laugh. As far as the cast, it is choke full of genre faithful from lead Danielle Harris to the lovely Caroline WIlliams, Sean Whalen, and Sid Haig with a memorable character performance that will have you rolling. One more surprise cameo, but I'll let you find out who it is..

      HATCHET III is a stylish conclusion to the franchise, with BJ McDonnell admirably taking over in the director's chair. Danielle Harris is superb (when is she not?), and Caroline Williams steps up to the plate with a fine performance. Zach (Gremlins) Galligan is also spot on and there's a host of cameos and in jokes to tickle genre enthusiasts funny bones whilst legendary Kane Hodder crushes, pulverises and stomps through the swamp as Victor. #HatchetArmy

      If you liked the first 2 movies I’m pretty sure you’ll like this one as well. Worth adding to your horror movie collection for sure. Lots of blood and gore and some solid comic relief in this one. It has a pretty decent storyline that continues to follow from the first 2 movies. Give a watch if you have the chance at least to say that you’ve seen it.

      This is one of the best sequels I've seen. Hatchet III is bloody and scary, and I actually loved the acting. Surprisingly, Hatchet III is better than first film. If you're looking or debating getting this third installment of the Hatchet franchise, definitely buy it. Danielle Harris plays a really good part once again. And don't listen to the other website reviews. It's much much better than only a few stars!

      The first Hatchet was great. It was a nice balance of comedy and gore. Hatchet 3 just feels like it was bored with itself. Sure, it's gory but that's all its got going for it. I'm giving it a light recommendation simply because I'm a completist. If you've seen the first two you might as well finish the trilogy.

      First off Hatchet, as a series is not the best and not even among horror do i think it is the best franchise, but, its a fun old school type of movie series that in my opinion has only gotten better. I believe that this third and possibly final entry is the best by far, now whether thats due to a new director, maybe?, though its a high point nonetheless.
