Horror starring Kane Hodder as Victor Crowley, a grossly disfigured killer who suffered an accidental hatchet to the face when his father tried to rescue him from a fire. When college boy Ben (Joel Moore) abandons his friends during a pre-Katrina Mardi Gras in favour of a cheesy Haunted Swamp tour, he finds himself on a boat full of misfits with an inexperienced tour guide (Perry Shen) from Detroit. Soon the boat is sinking and the passengers - who also include an aspiring porn director and his two stars, a middle-aged couple, and a young woman with a vendetta against Crowley - come face-to-face with the monstrous killer.
Adam Green's Hatchet is a goofy, gory gas that pays tribute to the slasher boom of the 1980s by placing more hapless teens in the path of an indestructible maniac. Said killer is Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder, Jason in many of the later Friday the 13th entries), a deformed Louisiana swamp dweller who returns from an apparent fiery death to lay waste to a mixed bag of tourists and Mardi Gras revelers who've wandered into his turf on a "haunted swamp" tour. Hatchet doesn't exactly surpass the movies it's spoofing; Green's characters are dopey ciphers, and Crowley's indiscriminate killing spree negates his sympathetic origins. But the dialogue is glib and the performances funny (especially Parry Shen as the tour's unlikely guide and Joel David Moore as the lovelorn hero), and '80s horror aficionados will appreciate John Carl Buechler's outrageously gross effects (which get more screen time in this unrated cut). There are also cameos by genre vets Robert Englund and Tony Todd, as well as Joshua Leonard from The Blair Witch Project. -- Paul GaitaSee all Product Description

tour guide's second trip.
Disaster strikes when the boat runs a ground, the group have to get out
and walk, they are literally in the middle of nowhere, they need to find
their way back to civilisation.
'Mary-Beth' joined the tour because her father and brother had gone missing
a couple of nights back in that area, she tells the group about the legends
and story's, which doesn't help the morale.
They set off............they are lost in 'Victor Crawley's' territory.....things soon
take a turn for the worse.
There is plenty of blood, guts, gore throughout the movie, some character's in
this type of movie have 'victim' written all over them.
Some of the scenes put me in mind of 'Michael Myers' (Halloween)
I am reliably informed that this is almost certainly the weakest of the trilogy
however I'm told as some of the earlier reviewers say to understand the second
and third the first needs to be watched first, we shall see ?

The story is about a guy named Ben who's just been dumped by him long-term girlfriend so his friends take him to Mardi-Graas to take his mind off things. Ben however wants to check out a ghost tour at the local swamps that he has heard about. Ben and his friend then go on the tour but find out that the swamps are haunted by a deformed axe-wielding killer named Victor Crowley who will kill anyone who goes near his shack.
This is proper old-school horror that fans of films like Friday the 13th and Scream should absolutely love. The special effects are very impressive, if a little over the top. Victor Crowley is a great bad guy that can be genuinely quite scary at times. The story is fun. The script is cheesy and hilarious. The acting is intentionally bad and all the better for it! Overall this is a great slasher film that has been criminally over-looked and should be a cult classic in my opinion. Well worth a watch if you're into horrors that don't take themselves seriously in the slightest.
Some of the dialogue is obviously meant to be funny and some of the action is funny because its so unrealistic - buckets of blood, often literally thrown from off-screen!
It is quite inventive in the manner of the killings - not a typical slasher flick and was quite enjoyable but only 3 stars because several of the characters are very annoying. Mercedes McNabb was particularly iritating as another airhead bimbo (very similar to her character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and managed to stay alive far too long!!
A good choice if you want a light horror but hardened horror fans looking for realism and scares would probably be bored.
