        This is a considerable improvement over Hatchet 2. I don't even know what it was that made this film so much better than its prequel, because, essentially, they're the same exact film with very little that's actually different. But, I don't know, I thought the film was better paced than Hatchet 2, the horror/gore was, obviously, very over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek. I wouldn't call this a parody of slasher films, but it does poke fun at some of the tropes. Like, for example, how a lot of these monsters keep coming back film after film, no matter how devastating an end they met in the previous film. The film plays with that here and it's actually probably one of the more important elements of the film, in how you actually get rid of Victor Crowley. While how they did end up getting rid of him might seem stupid, particularly considering everything that was done to him, it actually makes sense within the context of what the film is trying to do, so I had no problem with that. Maybe I'm overrating the film, but I honestly had quite a bit of fun watching this film. It's not what you would call a great horror movie, and it was never actually meant to be one. But as far as quick, doesn't overstay its welcome diversion, then it works pretty damn well to be honest. Another reason I think I'm overrating this film is the fact that Sid Haig made an awesome cameo appearance in this film. His appearance definitely made the film a little bit better to me and, without him, it's very likely that I'd have given the film 2.5 star rating. It's not that I didn't have fun, but Haig's appearance made the film better than it would've been without him. And it's not even a cameo that goes more than five minutes. With that said, I think I still would've enjoyed the film in a more B-movie type of way, even if I didn't give it a good rating. There's a lot of gore, duh, and it's obviously completely over-the-top, just what you would expect. The film is surprisingly well paced for this type of film. Like there's a good balance of gore and 'story'. Not that there's honestly much of a story to speak of, but it is there and they find a good balance between those two elements to make sure that the film doesn't peak early. So that was cool. The film, obviously, has its comedic elements and it's clear that this isn't meant to be taken seriously in the slightest. So I enjoyed this movie. It's got good gore and good tongue-in-cheek tone. Hatchet fans will definitely enjoy this one. It's a fun time.

        Surprisingly better than than Hatchet 2. Hatchet 3 seems the return of Victor Crowley who after presumably killed by Marybeth, has resurrected because of a voodoo curse. Marybeth is arrested as the suspect of the Honey Island Swamp masscare, at the same time a nosy journalist tells her the only way to break the curse is to give Crowley what he wants. At the same time, police officers, paramedics and swat teams were sent to the swamp to find out what's happened after Crowley resurrected. Bolder and Cheekier than the first two films, Hatchet 3 was a fun ride from the beginning to the end. I really do hope Hatchet can become a franchise like Friday the 13th.

        Hokey trash with a story that was absolute bobbins in the first film and is one step beyond parody here, but Danielle Harris is somehow superb and the ludicrously over-the-top gore effects and high body count, not to mention scant running time, makes the film enjoyable.

        I'm not expecting high art from 'The Hatchet' series. Green is attempting a throwback to the Friday the 13th series of the 80's and for the most part he succeeds. It helps that he throws in a lot of horror movie homages and old cult actors and goes to town with the gore. However unlike the recent horror remakes such as 'Last House' and 'The Hills have Eyes' this series never takes itself seriously and even though it's very bloody the whole thing comes across as very tongue in cheek. This series can probably go on forever as there doesn't seem to be any way to kill Victor Crowley but as long as Green keeps the in-jokes intact and has fun with it there's no reason we won't still be enjoying 'Hatchet X'!
