This writer has been to the beloved New Beverly Cinema countless times over the last several years, but not for something nearly as cool as what I experienced last Wednesday night.
Since its announcement there's been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming sequel Hatchet 3. Loads of info has been popping up here and there regarding casting news, etc. So, as a means to get to the bottom of it, we went to the man himself ...
See how simple that was? No police in theatres. No shutdowns. No silly controversy. Just pay for your ticket and see a movie about a swamp monster with a wireless belt sander. That's right, kids! The UK will be getting Hatchet II as it was meant to be seen when it opens there in theatres this week. Free of all the MPAA stupidity and hoopla.
While fans of Adam Green's Hatchet are celebrating news of a third entry in the series getting the green light, folks in the UK are still waiting to see Hatchet II. Well, mates, the wait is just about over as Hatchet II will be making its way across the pond on April 1st.
You knew it was coming. More bloodshed was inevitable. It's with great pleasure that we announce that the body count is about to continue. Steady yourself ... Hatchet 3 is a GO! From the Press Release
We broke the first word about the new web series from director Adam Green and co-creator Rileah Vanderbilt, Sexy Nightmare Slayers, a couple of weeks ago, and now the goods have finally arrived. Dig it!
If ever there was a time that we wished to be plagued with horrid nightmares brimming with terror, it's now. That's right, kids! Turn your lights down low and get ready for a sexy evening of scantily clad women protecting you from ferocious beasts!
When we last spoke, Adam Green (the writer/director of the Hatchet series and Frozen, co-director of Spiral, and producer of Grace) talked a little bit about his past, his love of films, and some of the challenges he faced as an indie filmmaker.
First and foremost, it should be noted that writer/producer/ director Adam Green is a film fan. It’s evident in his feature films. It’s evident in his short films. It’s readily apparent when you talk to him.
Kane Hodder is man known for his ability to kill. After playing the unstoppable Jason Voorhees for four films in the legendary Friday the 13th series, Hodder has moved on to star in a number of successful and influential genre and non-genre films. Back in 2006 he returned to the woods to become the maniacal Victor Crowley in Adam Green’s homage to the slasher film, Hatchet.
Exclusive to Dread, here’s a handful of photos from last night’s DVD and Blu-ray release signing for director Adam Green’s Hatchet II, which took place at LA’s house of the macabre, Dark Delicacies (3512 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA).
Tony Todd is, to say the least, an imposing figure. At 6’5”, broad of frame, and with a deep, booming voice, he’s a guy who gets attention. The fact that he’s also a dependable and wholly competent actor makes him all the more impressive.
