According to DVDActive, Starz Home Entertainment and Anchor Bay
Entertainment will be releasing Adam Green's Hatchet on
December 18th.
When a group of tourists on a New Orleans haunted swamp tour find
themselves stranded in the wilderness, their evening of fun and spooks
turns into a horrific nightmare. This modern slasher stars: Joel Moore, Deon
Richmond, Tamara Feldman and Mercedes McNab, with a supporting cast
of: Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Tony Todd and Joshua Leonard. There
will be two separate editions made available, an 'R' rated theatrical version
(83 minutes) and an unrated edition (84 minutes). Although we disagree
with the quote on the DVD cover, we are looking forward to grabbing this
on DVD. Be sure to check out our positive
review for the film.

In terms of extra features the unrated release will include: a making-of
featurette, Meeting Victor Crowley: An in-depth look at the creation of a
new horror icon, Guts & Gore: Go behind the scenes of Hatchet’s special
makeup and prosthetic effects, Anatomy of a Kill: Witness the “jaw-
breaking” birth, design and execution of a death scene, A Twisted Tale:
Adam Green recounts his decades-long friendship with “Twisted Sister”
front man and Fangoria Radio host Dee Snider, a gag reel, a theatrical
trailer and finally, a feature length commentary with: writer/director Adam
Green, cinematographer Will Barratt and actors Tamara Feldman, Joel David
Moore and Deon Richmond. On the other hand, the theatrical release will
contain the “Meeting Victor Crowley” featurette and a theatrical trailer.
HATCHET spins a terrifying tale of tragedy and comeuppance from beyond
the grave.

Victor Crowley is a hideously deformed boy, living in seclusion with his
father in an isolated cabin deep in the Louisiana bayou. When a Halloween
prank initiated by local kids goes terribly awry, Victor is accidentally killed in
a vicious twist of irony. Years later, a tourist group visiting New Orleans’
“haunted swamps” stumble upon the remnants of that shocking event,
transforming an evening of seemingly innocent fun into a horrific nightmare,
from which there may be no escape. You can pre-order the Unrated
Director's Cut HATCHET DVD over at
