While most every store, rental and streaming carrier will carry Hatchet 2 in the director's theatrical unrated cut, Red Box insisted on the distributor creating an R-rated version that has most every death scene taken out of the film. Adam Green's comment to press was that he looks at it no differently than when a film has to be edited for television or airplane rentals and does not blame Dark Sky for censoring the film for Red Box. Hatchet 2 only had ratings problems in the United States of America, further supporting the filmmaker's claims that the ratings board here was being unfair. See more »

Hatchet 2: The Best of the Horror Franchises of the Present
Adam Green gets it. Horror movies are fun. Hatchet 2 may be the funnest horror movie of them all, and to it's slight detriment, the film has so much fun, that we forget that people are being viciously murdered. Once again, Green populates the slasher film with a bevy of extremely likable fodder for Hodder. Hatchet nods in the general direction of it's forefathers, the horror franchises of the eighties, before it takes a belt-sander to what is expected from a slasher film. It is a greatest kills marathon, full of kills you have never seen before. The story expands upon and strengthens the first film and leaves you wanting oh so much more Victor Crowley. No CGI gore. No excruciating torture scenes, just lots and lots of body rippin' and mutalatin'. Go see it, but try and come out with all your pieces.
