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.
In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
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.

The R-rated version of the film that Dark Sky Films created for Red Box rentals is missing close to 2 full minutes of gore/violence that the MPAA insisted they pull out. Director Adam Green is not happy about that version but has stated that he supports Dark Sky's decision and understands why they had to do it for that one outlet. Green has publicly stated that those who feel the film's stance on staying unrated for theaters was a "publicity stunt" should compare this R-rated version to understand just how severely the MPAA was trying to castrate the film and change the tone of it. All other retail outlets supported Green's claims when they agreed to carry the film Unrated in their stores. They felt there was nothing that offensive about the film in the first place and that it never should have been given an NC-17 like the MPAA tried to give it to keep it out of mainstream theaters.

I saw "Hatchet 2" last night at the Fantsay Film Fest in Frankfurt, Germany and what I saw was just WOOOOW! I loved "Hatchet"...and this sequel is much better than the first one. "Hatchet 2" is funny and very, very violent. Now I know why it should be cut from the MPAA to get an R-rating. I think it's a good idea to release movies without any rating instead of cutting something out like other studios do because they want to make more profit. In "Hatchet 2" there are many kills on screen and they are very violent, very bloody & gory. One of them might be one of the funniest and most curious kills ever - the whole audience laughed and acclaimed loudly.
I enjoyed this movie all the time and I hope to see it again - uncut again!
