An Unrelentingly Superb Film Influenced by German Expressionism
1 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director of previous Hatchet films Adam Green wrote this powerful entry in the tremendously effective series but gave BJ McDonnell a chance to try his hand at directing and the result is a masterpiece of this franchise. Filmed on location in New Orleans and the Louisiana swamps, the environment becomes even more menacing and the attacks even more frightening. While bloody at times, the mayhem is never over the top and serves always to advance the plot. This is an intense and suspenseful horror film that exceeds all expectations of a sequel and is a superb stand alone movie as well. Incidentally, Adam Green felt so strongly about giving those who have loyally followed the series some closure that this film fulfills that purpose and more. The director has obviously been schooled in German Expressionistic Cinema and he integrates techniques from that era with his own unique style resulting in utter motion picture genius. It is a very horrific motion picture experience but has well developed characters brought to life by an exquisite cast of fine actors. When Tamara Feldman was replaced by Danielle Harris in the role of Marybeth, many felt the franchise would suffer. But Harris breathed even more fire into the character and imbued her with a smoldering sexuality. The fear and dread the cast exhibits seems very real and one can almost hear their hearts pounding in terror as the horror builds to a shattering climax. You may discover that the sound of a desperately pounding heart is actually coming from your own chest because this is one of the most gripping and unrelenting horror films ever recorded on celluloid.
