Trivia

According to the cast and crew's various tweets and social networking comments, the production for this film was a brutal one. Several crew members spent time in the emergency room suffering from poisonous bug bites or DEET poisoning (a chemical found in bug spray). Severe thunder storms, lightning, rain, heat, and humidity made the swamp location even tougher to shoot in. Production trucks and equipment were stuck under several feet of mud at times. At one point Adam Green tweeted "I have 48 chigger bites from my waist down." See more »

The US Coast Guard states that the air support had to come from Baton Rouge. There are 9 USCG bases in New Orleans and its surrounding areas, most are less then a 30 min drive from Honey Island Swamp including a major Naval air station, which also houses the USMC. See more »

You know what you are in for, and "Hatchet III" delivers exactly that...
6 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Well, "Hatchet III" is essentially the same as the previous two parts, slasher movie a la the good old days. If you have seen either (or both) of the previous two "Hatchet" movies, then you know exactly what you are in for here and what you will get.

Is that a bad thing then? No, not necessarily. If you enjoy these slasher movies where you just disconnect your brain and ride along on the murder ride, then you will enjoy "Hatchet III" for what it is - being exactly that. If you, however, enjoy being challenged and want something to think about, then "Hatchet III" is not the best of choices.

The story pretty much picks up where part II left off, and it is a nice continuation of the story, plus there were some nice cameo appearances as well. The story in a nutshell; the ghost of Victor Crowley (played by Kane Hodder) is still on a murdering rampage in his overgrown swamp where he kills and mutilates anyone who gets onto his land. And it is up to Marybeth (played by Danielle Harris) to put an end to the murdering maniac with the secret that is bestowed upon her.

Essentially, the storyline is straight forward, predictable at times, but enjoyable enough for this particular genre of movie. Straight out from the "let's make a slasher movie handbook". And yeah, Kane Hodder (the iconic horror legend known for his portrayal of Jason Voorhees) is starting off another slasher legend here, or so it would seem. However, it just isn't up to the same level as Jason is. Sure, these are two very different characters, but still, there is just something more dreadful and sinister about Jason Voorhees. But it is cool that he has returned three times for the role of misshapen Victor Crowley.

I enjoyed the movie, and there is a fair amount of blood and gore in the movie to satisfy most gorehounds out there. And it was a particular treat to have Sid Haig appear in the movie as well, as his presence is always enjoyable in whatever movie he is in.

Heads will roll, blood will flow, people will die (in macabre ways) and about an hour and twenty minutes of entertainment is ensured. Thumbs up from me (at least until Crowley chops them off!).
