A savvy, fun, blood-soaked horror featuring an impressive supporting cast of the some of the genre's best known actors, HATCHET stars Joel David Moore (DODGEBALL: A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY), Deon Richmond (SCREAM 3) and Mercedes McNab (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), HATCHET boasts an amazing supporting cast, including Robert Englund (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series), Tony Todd (CANDYMAN) and Kane Hodder (JASON FROM FRIDAY 13TH VII and VIII, JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL CHAPTER and JASON X).
Depressed after being dumped by his girlfriend, Ben (Joel Moore) persuades his friend Marcus (Deon Richmond) to leave behind the many appeals of New Orleans' Mardi Gras and join him on a haunted swamp tour. However as their inept guide leads them through the bayou, telling wild stories of local legends, the pair soon find themselves in trouble as the boat sinks and they are left stranded in the wilderness with their fellow tourists; two empty-headed girls with dreams of movie stardom, their 'director', a married couple and a lone girl who doesn't want to talk to anyone.
As they attempt to find a way out of the swamp, they come across the Crowley house, home of Victor Crowley, a hideously deformed boy killed in tragic circumstances. It soon becomes apparent that the legend of Victor Crowley is much more than just a story and soon the group find themselves hunted by a killer more hideous and terrifying than they could ever have imagined.
Written and directed by Adam Green, HATCHET is a must-see for fans of the classic slasher films of the 80's. Since its premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival it has played at a number of international festivals, including the London FrightFest Film Festival, and the Austin Fantastic Film Festival, where it was awarded both the Audience and Jury prizes for Best Actor and Best Special Effects, and the Audience Award for Best Picture.
