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 :)
