Hatchet II Gets Nationwide Midnight Showings

The momentum for Adam Green’s Hatchet II is growing by the second, and word has just come down that AMC theatres will debut the film by offering a host of midnight showings!

From the Press Release
Dark Sky Films, a division of MPI Media Group, announced today that following the onslaught of demand from fans nationwide, Adam Green’s unrated HATCHET II will now debut at midnight (12:01 a.m. Thursday night/Friday morning) on Oct. 1 in AMC Theatres across the country. Pre-sales for both the 12:01 a.m. showing and an evening showing on Oct 1 are now available for purchase at AMC Theatres online.

Through its AMC independentâ„¢ program, AMC Theatres will exhibit HATCHET II in top markets in the United States including: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Detroit, Seattle, Cincinnati, Columbus, Miami, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Atlanta, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Baltimore, St. Louis, Orlando, Tallahassee and Tampa.

The announcement about the HATCHET II midnight screenings on Oct. 1 was made jointly by AMC Theatres and MPI Media Group. Vitagraph Films will serve as the theatrical distributor.

Dark Sky Films’ Greg Newman said “We’re doubly please that not only are we offering fans the opportunity to see HATCHET II in all of its unrated glory, but we’re giving it to them as soon as we possibly can.”

A tribute to the old-school slasher movies of the 80’s, HATCHET II is the follow-up to the popular original film, which was released theatrically in 2007 and became a sleeper-hit, gaining a wide following on DVD. The cast of HATCHET II features a cavalcade of horror movie icons including Danielle Harris (HALLOWEEN) and Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13th), who reprises his role as serial killer Victor Crowley. Also starring are Tony Todd (CANDYMAN), R.A. Mihailoff (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) and Tom Holland (CHILD’S PLAY).

HATCHET II debuted in late August in London at Fright Fest, the U.K.’s premiere horror and fantasy film festival. The U.S. premiere is scheduled for Sept. 24at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

This second installment in the now franchise for Dark Sky Films focuses on Marybeth as she escapes from the clutches of Victor Crowley, learns the truth about his curse, and heads back into the haunted New Orleans swamp to seek revenge for her family and kill Victor Crowley once and for all.

Hatchet II‘s cast includes Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, R.A. Mihailoff, AJ Bowen, Tom Holland, Kathryn Fiore, Parry Shen, Rileah Vanderbilt, Ed Ackerman, Rick McCallum, Colton Dunn, David Foy, Nick Principe, Alexis Peters, and Kane Hodder as Victor Crowley.
