Hatchet 2 hits theatres today!

October is an exciting month for fans of horror movies, such as myself.  We've got Let Me In, which opens today, and My Soul to Take, and Saw 3-D opening later in this month.  However, I am most excited to check out Hatchet II, the sequel to the 2007 gorefest.

One of the main reasons that I am excited is the presence of Danielle Harris.  Danielle, who started in Halloween 4 and 5 as a child, and both Rob Zombie Halloween films, stars as Marybeth, taking the role over from Tamara Feldman.  Harris is a bonafide scream queen, and has carved a nice career in horror.

The main reason that people will check out this film, however, is the ridiculous amount of blood and gore.  Director Adam Green boasts that this film will feature 17 deaths, which are even more brutal and disgusting than the original.  In the first film we saw a man get hacked to bits, a woman have the top half of her head ripped off, and a an unfortunate hottie take a belt sander to the face.  I can only imagine the carnage that ensues in the sequel.

The lovely Hatchet 2 star, with yours truly, circa 2008
For those of you who haven't seen the original, a group of tourists go into the New Orleans swap, for a boat tour, but the said boat takes the wrong turn, and naturally they get lost.  They meet Victor Crowley, a grossly deformed maniac with a thirst for blood.  He then kills off the cast, until he gets to Marybeth(Harris) and the second film picks up right where the first one ended.

This film is also being released unrated, as Director Adam Green was dissatisfied with having to cut much of his first film, due to limitations by the Nazi's that the MPAA.  Green promises uncompromising brutality and fun.

You have a lot of choices this weekend, with The Social Network being released, as well as the aforementioned Let Me In, but if you're a horror buff, drag your ass to a theatre and go see Hatchet 2!  The film is unrated, and is not for the squeamish.
