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.

The first horror movie to be theatrically released unrated in mainstream cinemas across the United States since George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) over 32 years earlier. When the MPAA kept giving Hatchet II an NC-17 rating with each submission, the filmmakers decided to circumvent them and go straight to a major cinema chain and show them the film. When AMC theaters saw the uncut movie they loved it. Then, after hearing just how much of the violence would have to be cut out to get an R rating by the ratings board, AMC agreed to release Hatchet II in their theaters unrated. However, they later pulled the film from their theaters when it was released for only a few days. See more »

There wasn't much difference between this sequel and the first movie. Pretty much the exact same thing happens. This time the girl, Mary Beth, whom survived the first night is back to return to the swamp with Rev Zombie's help for a really stupid reason: to bring back the bodies of her family. So Zombie gathers a crew and they go to the swamp that night. Zombie has a plan to put an end to Crowley's ghost.
Do plans ever work with freaky killers-No! So you get more blood and gore and skulls bashed in, plus some faces cut off.
FINAL VERDICT: If you never have your fill of slasher films, check it out.
