If you were a fan of Hatchet, then get ready to be excited as Victor Crowley returns in Adam Green's (picture left) Hatchet 2 - in UK cinemas on Friday April 1 from Arrow. And not only that, but the film (which suffered in the US when it was released uncut last year when cinemas removed the film from circulation) will be the full uncut version with an 18 certificate from the BBFC.
The film premiered in the UK last August as the opening film at Film4 FrightFest and went down a storm thanks to it's outrageous gore, clever cameo casting and hilarious content. Trust us, this is one film you gore-hounds really do not want to miss out on.

Hatchet 2 picks up at the exact moment that 2006’s Hatchet ends, wherein the quiet but hot-tempered Marybeth (Danielle Harris, Halloween I & II) is in a small boat in the Louisiana swamps, screaming for her life as she tries to free herself from the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday the 13th).
Crowley has murdered Marybeth’s family and other fellow vacationers who had come together on tourist excursion in the swamplands outside of New Orleans.
Marybeth escapes from Crowley and manages to make it back to civilization, where she once again encounters voodoo shop proprietor Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd, Candyman), who had helped to arrange Marybeth and company’s earlier, ill-fated tour of the area. To help Marybeth and also serve his own secret agenda, Reverend Zombie recruits a hardened pack of hunters to head back into the swamp to seek revenge on Victor Crowley.
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
