San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Kane Hodder and Zach Galligan Talk Hatchet III

And our Hatchet III coverage continues. Next on tap are Zach Galligan and Victor Crowley himself, Kane Hodder. Raise those hatchets high, kids. Things are sounding like we are in for a good old fashioned blood bath!

I assume you guys are enemies in this movie?

Zach: Well, I’m the Sheriff so I have to investigate some killings.

Kane: That I had nothing to do with.

Zach: I guess you could assume that a swamp ghost and a sheriff would be pitted against each other.

Zach, had you seen the first two Hatchet films?

Zach: I did not. I definitely did some research and liked what I saw. But you can’t really go on what the first two were, you go on what they’re planning to do next. Because it can turn into something great or it can turn into something not so great. You have to weigh it based on what’s in front of you. I particularly liked the dialogue, the way the dialogue was written. That and Adam’s participation were the determining factor.

Kane, what’s different about your performance in this one?

Victor seems to be even more pissed off this time. The movie is even more violent than the last one if you can believe that.

How many more kills are in this one?

What did they say?

I didn’t have time to ask.

I can’t say exactly how many, but it’s a lot.

I hear the shoot was brutal. What bugs were you bitten by in the swamp?

Zach: I think the easier answer is what weren’t we bitten by. We weren’t bitten by nutria or alligators, snakes or spiders. I was bitten by every conceivable slimy insect. Chiggers, mites. All of the sores at the end of the day.

Kane: I would wake up from a dead sleep scratching.

Zach: It was maddening. This was a nine [on the pain scale].

Kane, you acted out of makeup for a portion of the last one. Does that happen again in Hatchet 3?

Kane: Thomas Crowley is in the movie. I can’t really go into any more than that.

Zach, I imagine you’re pretty skeptical of Danielle’s character in this.

Zach: Well, if you were a police officer and a girl came in and said there was a giant ghost who was murdering giants of people, would you believe her? But once he goes in and investigates, he draws different conclusions. Which is vague enough to be maddening I know.

Any favorite kills in the movie?

Kane: Well Adam wrote the script again so there are some insanely bloody kills that I’m not even sure how he dreamed up. I have a sick mind and even I was amazed.

Hatchet III opens on the ultraviolent final shot of Hatchet II and continues the tale of the now iconic slasher villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.

The sequel is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell’s directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
