A search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
Marybeth escapes the clutches of the deformed, swamp-dwelling iconic killer Victor Crowley. After learning the truth about her family's connection to the hatchet-wielding madman, Marybeth returns to the Louisiana swamps along with an army of hunters to recover the bodies of her family and exact the bloodiest revenge against the bayou butcher.

In Canada, the film was scheduled to play in Toronto and Montreal theaters on October 1, 2010. However, because the film was not rated by the cities' provincial rating agencies, the theaters were threatened with fines if it still played and, thus, it was pulled from release. On Twitter, Adam Green referred to the occurrence as "sad". See more »
[to Reverend Zombie, about Marybeth]
What's up with that Blair Witch, man? I'd tap that, but she'd probably have cobwebs sealing it up. And even if I did hit that, a bunch of bats come flying out of it. Voodoo.

Hatchet II begins on quite a dull note of our leading lady(Danielle Harris) trying to get away from a hideous looking human. But just a few reels later, the roller-coaster ride of full-on violence & savage slaughter begins and the body count or body pieces rather, keep piling up till the topping at the finale :) When I saw the movie poster, I anticipated some dread thinking of all that slaying but when you actually watch the scenes, it looks comical! More like a gory comedy to me, made to induce laughter than fear.
The story or the proceedings don't make sense in many places - dumb people who don't even make an escape move when the monster chases them down with a loooong chainsaw & some other similar stuff. But probably that's the only flipside. I was having enough fun watching the hacking & nudity :) I guess, this movie proves once again that slaughter & nudity in movies always gel very well, hehe.
Nothing much to talk about the acting, except for Danielle Harris and Tony Todd(as Reverend Zombie). Both add to the excitement with their expressions of anguish, fear, desperation or cold anger.
Verdict: Satisfies your dark fantasies. Hack, hack away :)
