Did You Know?
In Canada, the film was scheduled to play in Toronto and Montreal theaters on October 1, 2010. However, because the film was not rated by the cities' provincial rating agencies, the theaters were threatened with fines if it still played and, thus, it was pulled from release. On Twitter, Adam Green referred to the occurrence as "sad".
[to Reverend Zombie, about Marybeth]
What's up with that Blair Witch, man? I'd tap that, but she'd probably have cobwebs sealing it up. And even if I did hit that, a bunch of bats come flying out of it. Voodoo.
Hatchet 2: The Best of the Horror Franchises of the Present
Adam Green gets it. Horror movies are fun. Hatchet 2 may be the funnest
horror movie of them all, and to it's slight detriment, the film has so
much fun, that we forget that people are being viciously murdered. Once
again, Green populates the slasher film with a bevy of extremely
likable fodder for Hodder. Hatchet nods in the general direction of
it's forefathers, the horror franchises of the eighties, before it
takes a belt-sander to what is expected from a slasher film. It is a
greatest kills marathon, full of kills you have never seen before. The
story expands upon and strengthens the first film and leaves you
wanting oh so much more Victor Crowley. No CGI gore. No excruciating
torture scenes, just lots and lots of body rippin' and mutalatin'. Go
see it, but try and come out with all your pieces.
