Looking for a good, old-fashioned hack-n-slash? Want something that feels like an old-school horror movie, much like Friday the 13th? Look no further than Hatchet.
A group of friends head to New Orleans for some fun, a break from reality and the stress of normal-life. But Ben doesn't want to just party on Bourbon Street. No, no. He wants to take a dilapidated pontoon boat tour down into the swamps to find Victor Crowley. Victor Crowley being an urban legend in town. A deformed local who was tragically murdered with a hatchet while his house burned to the ground. Many think he's dead, gone for good, but there are few who know the truth, and live to tell it.
Fans of insane, almost comical, murder scenes will thoroughly enjoy this film. It's a little outrageous, but all good horror movies are. Fans of Jason Vorhees will appreciate Victor Crowley. Kane Hodder, the actor who portrays Victor Crowley, also played Jason Vorhees in 4 Friday the 13th movies, and the Friday the 13th video game. His stance, his walk, and his mannerisms are all very similar between the two characters. A very scary, murder-y, persona. Very terrifying. Very appropriate for October.
