Old fashioned gore, new sheen: Full, bloody “HATCHET III” Trailer is here
The neo-slasher series’ threequel is written and produced by creator Adam Green, but its evident from the first footage that director BJ McDonnell has brought new scale to the swamp.
In a case of “going back in” yet again, HATCHET heroine Marybeth (Danielle Harris) drags no amateur hunters this time around. It’s all law enforcement and it looks like Derek Mears (FRIDAY THE 13TH 2009) and GREMLINS’ Zach Galligan lead the pack. McDonnell, who worked as camera operator on the first two films, as well as Rob Zombie’s recent THE LORDS OF SALEM and blockbuster fare like JACK REACHER and the upcoming STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, seems to have peppered some stylish action into the blood geysers and fratty humor we’ve come to expect.
Of course, Kane Hodder returns as Victor Crowley. Caroline Williams, Sean Whalen and Jason Trost (THE FP) join. HATCHET III is out June 14 from Dark Sky. For more, check out our Q&A with Green and McDonnell from last summer’s Comic-Con here.
