Unfortunate news today for our friends in the Great White North ... Adam Green's Hatchet II has been pulled from theatres. Sucks, yes, and even more of a reason why change is so important pertaining to the way things are done. Adam Green, posted the following message in his Twitter account:
For the past several weeks we've been talking about why you should go see Hatchet II this weekend. We've even asked that if it's not playing by you to support it anyway by going online and buying a ticket to send a message to Hollywood and the MPAA that there IS a market for unrated horror. Now we're putting OUR money where our mouths are!
Horror fans, you've asked for a movie that doesn't shy away from the blood, guts and gore; and Hatchet II delivers that and more.
