A daft horror with a diverse cast, some playing it for laughs and others going a bit deeper before their heads and limbs are removed. The effects are delightfully squelchy though the quality doesn't always match the sheer number of squirting arteries.
A real treat for Hatchet fans but also an enjoyable (if gory!) horror film in it's own right.
It's not trying to be serious, with Green wanting to offer some respite from all the horrors of the world.
Green and his cast and crew achieve exactly what they set out to do with this film. There's zero pretence, just a desire to make a slasher film for the fans with the gore dial turned up to 11.
If you're binging the entire franchise, this is a worthy installment and a clear indication that more is to come.
While Hatchet has since become an iconic franchise, none of the sequels have been able to recreate the magic of the first film. The latest, Victor Crowley, is easily the worst of the bunch.
Only offers more - or much less - of the same, showing the strains of a tight budget and a mythology that's run its course.
Adam Green never abandons his splattery sensibilities in Victor Crowley - which is a good thing for gore fans - but the franchise's darkened atmosphere is barely recognizable this time around.
Fans might lap it up out of habit, but it's bizarre to watch the "Hatchet" universe get smaller and sillier as it expands, with Green refusing to put a DNR order on his creation.
The film coasts on nostalgia. It needs to swing that hatchet harder to make a mark of its own.
Whilst some studios try and get some more mileage out of the classic horror icons, Crowley is a welcome original.
In doubling down on the humour and keeping the practical effects at the forefront, Adam Green has once again delivered a hugely satisfying, fan-centric slasher with a lot of personality.
