Frank's Movie Log

My life at the movies.

Hatchet 2006

  • Watched on Saturday Sep 19, 2020 via iTunes (2010 | Starz / Anchor Bay | 1080p | Unrated Director's Cut)
    C+: 3 stars (out of 5)

    Takes the ’80s slasher formula, adds a liberal dose of humor, and executes with a talented cast and a boatload of heart. Sure, subbing arid southern California for a Louisiana swamp drains the budget and constrains the shot selection, but the practical effects are top-notch, inventive, and gruesome.

    Enjoyed it enough to buy the Blu-Ray for the bonus features (which don’t disappoint).
