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
Amazon.com.
