Exclusive: Kane Hodder Dishes on Hatchet II

Exclusive: Kane Hodder Dishes on Hatchet II
Kane Hodder discusses playing Victor Crowley once again in Hatchet II, working with director Adam Green, Chillerama and much more.

Kane Hodder's place in the horror history books has long been secured, but, like any driven actor or performer, he's not one to rest on his laurels. He is the only actor to portray Jason Voorhees more than once (four times, in fact, in Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, and Jason X), and he has even brought some real-life serial killers to life on the big screen in Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield and B.T.K. as the B.T.K. killer, Dennis Rader. This stuntman/actor also portrays the horror genre's most recent beloved icon, Victor Crowley, in Adam Green's sequel Hatchet II, which will be released on Blu-ray and DVD

It Came From The Mailbox: Drifter: Henry Lee Lucas & Night Stalker

Barnholtz Entertainment was nice enough to send along a screener copy of Drifter: Henry Lee Lucas - the latest direct to dvd serial killer epic from writer/director Michael Feifer. Feifer has been a busy man in the last few years, cranking out a string of grisly straight to dvd serial killer bio-pics including Chicago Massacre: Richard Speck, Ed Gein: Butcher Of Plainfield, Boston Strangler: The Untold Story, B.T.K., and Ted Bundy: Legacy Of Evil.

More Serial Killers Coming to Your House

I've got a wacky idea. Indie horror filmmakers Ulli Lommel and Michael Feifer should have a fight, and only the winner is allowed to make any more movies based on the exploits of real-life serial killers. I'd be cheering for Feifer, if only because he at least attempts to make actual movies.

Michael Feifer has been quite the busy beaver of late with two serial killer thrillers debuting on DVD: last month's B.T.K. (review), which Heather found surprisingly effective, and next month's Bundy: A Legacy of Evil (review), which I found to be quite pointless. Feifer has yet another coming to DVD in the form of Drifter: Henry Lee Lucas starring Antonio Sabato, Jr. as the notorious serial killer responsible for 350 murders during his rampage from 1975 to 1983.

Antonio Sabato, Jr. as Henry Lee Lucas? Say what? I know what Henry Lee Lucas looked like. You can slap some scruffy facial hair on Antonio Sabato,

Jpp Exclusive: Interview with Kane Hodder

If you're at all familiar with the slasher horror classics of the 80s and 90s, then the name Kane Hodder should be quite familiar. For those who don't dabble in horror all that much, if you've seen Friday the 13th: Parts 7, 8, 9 or X, then you know Kane Hodder—although you might not recognize him. Kane is the man behind the iconic mask. Every lumbering step, every machete slice, Hodder brought Jason Voorhees's reanimated corpse new life.

You may also know him from his work as Victor Crowley in Adam Green's slasher hit Hatchet. To coincide with my review of the his latest film, B.T.K., here's an exclusive interview with... Kane Hodder. Mr. Hodder talks to us about B.T.K., working in and out of makeup and how he got into acting.

[DVD Review] B.T.K.

A little while ago I did an interview with Kane Hodder; in it we discussed a good portion of his out-of-costume acting work: stuff where he doesn’t have a mask on, and such. I brought up his quite good performance in director Michael Feifer’s previous serial killer biopic, Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield. I told him I was looking forward to his and Feifer’s newest collaboration, and a little while later B.T.K. showed up in my mailbox.

You’ve probably noticed the scores I’ve given the film by now. Keep in mind that Hodder’s still the man. His performance as Dennis Rader, the notorious killer on whom the film is based, really elevates the production a great deal, not just in the masterful physicality he exhibits, but in his truly inspired delivery. A lot of the dialogue in B.T.K. is fairly expositional, often telling

Kane Hodder Becomes Dennis Rader in B.T.K.

The actor/stuntman talks about portraying the real-life serial killer, a sequel and moreIf you're well-versed in the horror or stuntman worlds, Kane Hodder is a name you surely know well. A veteran of over 70 films as a stuntman and 60 as an actor, Hodder is best known for his portrayals of Jason Voorhes starting with Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood through Jason X, earning him the distinction of the actor who has played the iconic character the most times. He has also appeared as a more recent horror killer as Victor Crowley in Adam Green's cult horror hit Hatchet and now the horror legend is going sans mask, portraying the real life serial killer Dennis Rader in B.T.K., which hits the shelves on DVD on May 12. I had the chance to speak with Hodder over the phone, and here's what he had to say about his new film.

B.T.K.: Bind, Torture, Kane?

Sometimes I wonder if Kane Hodder doesn't take that "Kill" lip tattoo a little too seriously. Hopefully he won't get "Bind" and "Torture" tattooed in his nostrils in honor of the May release of his latest direct-to-dvd offering, B.T.K.

B.T.K. sees Hodder cast as Dennis Rader, aka "The B.T.K. Killer." The real-life serial killer earned his nickname from the cops based on his modus operandi: bind, torture, and then kill his victims. Making Rader's tale all the more incredible was that the seemingly mild-mannered middle-aged compliance officer was a leader in his church even as he preyed on innocent people for his power-tripping killing spree.

The writer-director of B.T.K. is Michael Feifer, a filmmaker who seems to love casting actors best known for playing movie maniacs, such as last year's Dracula's Guest (review here), which featured Andrew "Leatherface" Bryniarski as Count Dracula. He's also no stranger to making
