Hatchet II (2010) Poster

(2010)

Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1)
The unrated version of the movie was shown in 60 theaters on its debut weekend across the United States & Canada. Most of the theaters were unaware of the extent of the violence and vile content in the film, and nearly all of the theaters had stopped playing the movie by Monday morning.
It was reported on the horror websites that a crew member quit on day 2 due to "moral reasons" with what was taking place within the scene.
The crew is almost entirely the same crew who made Hatchet 1, one of Green's stipulations for whether or not he would return at the helm for Hatchet 2.

To keep details under wraps, even the crew did not receive copies of the script and the majority of cast only received select pages. Fake scripts, fake endings, and fake story lines were circulated around the industry and no visitors or guests were allowed near the set.

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.

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.

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".

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.

If you watch all three "Hatchet" movies in a row without opening and end credits, it would be one uninterupted storyline, revolving around a few days.
