Synopsis
A handful of college students looking for a good time are thrown into a world of danger in this homage to the slasher film cycle of the 1970s and '80s. Ben (Joel David Moore) has just been given his walking papers by his girlfriend and is deeply depressed. Needing a pick-me-up, Ben and his friend Marcus (Deon Richmond) head to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and take in a "Haunted Swamp Tour," with master of ceremonies Shawn (Parry Shen) guiding guests through a spooky patch of bayou country. Along the way, Ben and Marcus meet a pair of half-bright exotic dancers, Misty (Mercedes McNab) and Jenna (Joleigh Fioreavanti), as well as Marybeth (Tamara Feldman), a pretty girl who is secretive about her past. As they tour the swamp, Shawn tells his customers about the local legend of Victor Crowley, a deformed man who was taunted by the other children living near the swamp until he was nearly bludgeoned with an axe by his father while trying to open the door of their burning shack. While Ben and Marcus don't think much of the story at first, it doesn't take long before they have serious reason to believe Victor Crowley is still at large -- and is looking to settle some old scores. Hatchet received its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

This movie is an homage to 80's slasher/monster flicks, and as such I don't think it's meant to be as atmospheric and scary as those films tried to be. But this movie is not only having a lot of fun with it's take on the genre, it's also HILARIOUS. And I don't mean hilarious because its bad, I mean the script and actors are brilliant and funny and it's supposed to be that way. The first 30 minutes are pure comedy, better than any Judd Apatow attempt at humor. And how can you beat cameos by 3 of the most famous killers from those slasher movies this film pays homage to? Jason, Freddy, and Candyman! I was totally surprised by this movie and loved every minute.

I was very disappointed with this movie- I thought it was going to be a lot scarier and creepier than it was. I give it four stars for the gore- other than that- very boring film.

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
