Mosquitoes bite. Gators tear. But only Victor Crowley strangles a man with his own intestines until his head explodes.

This is basically an excuse to watch skulls crushed like melons, guts ripped from body cavities and torsos halved. And such things go on with relentless and disgusting regularity.

Swift and amusingly brainless, Hatchet II more than delivers on splatter expectations.

Say a prayer that there's no Hatchet III in the future.

Suffers from lamentable acting, murky cinematography and, for the most part, lamely unfunny dialogue.

The most shocking thing about the sequel is that it's a dramatic improvement.

The movie is never as cheeky or as fun as Green thinks it is, but he tries with all his might.

Hatchet II is distinguished both by a funky, frisky sense of humor, and gore of great quality and quantity.

More funhouse than grindhouse, this unrated horror-comedy has its D-grade charms thanks to its killer cast.

There are many good movies opening this weekend. Hatchet II is not one of them. Tickets are not cheap and time is fleeting. Why would you choose this one?

The movie is just inept and dull and stupid -- crap being passed off as a guilty, bloody pleasure.

We don't care about any of the characters. They're just video game obstacles to be dispatched as graphically as possible.

It's a functional sequel, but with all that spirited slicing and dicing, the director could have at least broken a sweat.

By the time Crowley begins literally ripping Marybeth's posse apart, one is too numbed-out to cheer the gruesome ingenuity of the old-school special effects. Die, Victor, die. Please.

Writer-director Adam Green offers another super-sized dose of bone-shattering, blood-splattering mayhem.
