    Which of the Hatchet trilogy do you think was the best?

    For me I think 3, but 1 is close behind, I found 2 to be abit of a let down

    Easily the first. No contest.

    The characters were much more likable and identifiable. The sequels were all about the kills. I also liked that they didn't know what they were walking into. In the sequels, they go into the swamp to specifically hunt Victor Crawley. To me, that made them less relatable than a group of regular people who find themselves stranded in the swamp.

    Also, there were way too many people to keep track of in the sequels. Part II had eleven characters, nine guys and two girls. The fact that nine of them were guys made them really difficult to tell apart. I couldn't keep track of them all the first time I saw it.

    I've had a copy of part III for a while, but haven't gotten around to watching it. I prefer part II to the first one, but I'll have to check out III soon, so I can vote here.

    No "none of the above" option?

    Still need to watch part three, and it's on the way. As for the first two, I liked part one slightly better.

    You simply don't vote, I don't get why people say stuff like this on a poll for films that have been out for ages. The poll and discussion is for fans of these films, I'm sure you've said your piece before. Coming onto a thread like this saying that is borderline trolling as far as I'm concerned.

    I wonder if that's why HII didn't really grasp me when I watched it. I remember the thing that really threw me with II was it felt different tonally. I thought III brought that tone back and succeeded better at what they tried to do with II.

    So long as I've lead someone to think about something, is all that matters to me.

    The brain is important, we shouldn't let it rot by watching too many Hatchet movies.

    (Breaking news: Hatchet isn't horror's answer to the Lord of the Rings trilogy or anything.)

    Not a big Hatchet fan but the first felt way too much like an awkward teen sex road trip comedy than a horror movie and the Crowley ghost/zombie/monster is too silly overpowered. I much preferred the second's more action based vibe. With the third they really struggled to vary things and the end trilogy narrative felt weak.

    I don't "get" the Perry Shen stuff; that really dragged these down.

    Yeah, that's definitely Prestige85 :p

    The first film is the best IMO. Hated the second (saw it theatrically) - it was a chore to sit through. Enjoyed the 3rd almost as much as the first one. I think a trilogy is sufficient for this series.

    I don't care for these films, but the first and third are okay. Juvenile is the word for these. Some bratty 11 year old kid thought them up. Still I had a decent time. But Part II... wow, I hated that one. So much.

    I rewatched 2 for the first time a few days ago and I enjoyed it more this time. I still think 1 & 3 are better but 2 I definitely like now. This might actually be my favourite horror trilogy now.

    Evil Dead?

    My vote would probably go to either Night Of The Demons or Slumber Party Massacre.

    I enjoyed the Hatchet films, but they're not very memorable, and would rank pretty low among the rest of the horror franchises out there.

    I don't like the first Evil Dead unfortunately

    Each to their own I guess

    It's kinda hard to pick. Maybe the third one. Either way ya got 3 movies filled with fun entertainment. Here's hoping for a fourth.

    I enjoy all three films, but the first is easily the best.

    See as much as Ai love them I think I'd rather it just stays as a trilogy at least for the time being

    I see what your saying. The trilogy has a more special overview. But a selfish part of me wants to see Hodder match his (and even go further) than his Jason role.

    Despite the lame title, I found MTV's My Super Psycho Sweet 16 series to be a far more satisfying modern slasher trilogy.

    Really surprised by how fun (and gory) those were for teen-oriented television.
