Best TROMA film in years! Wait... this isn't a TROMA movie?
Let me start by saying: Do NOT believe the hype. This is not "classic American Horror" by any stretch of the imagination. It was a glorified TROMA film, only Lloyd Kaufman was honest about the crap he was peddling.
Why do we have to keep re-hashing the same old tired clichés? What, no one can come up with anything better than Torture Porn, so we have to go backwards? Those 80s slasher films WERE great. No doubt. But why can't we move forward? "Hatchet" made me laugh. Often. The lead actor was undeniably funny. But, I grew up on real old school American horror, and I never laughed. I was scared. Often. "Hatchet" never once made me nervous, edgy, scared or tense. I never once jumped out of my seat, much less my skin.
I'm getting so bored of all this, aren't you?
(It gets a very generous "4" because of some quick, funny lines and some clever gore.)
