    Haven't been impressed with the franchise so far, but I will watch it because Caroline Williams and Zach Galligan are in it.

    Sign me up. Loved the first two films and the cast for this one sounds great.

    I really liked the first one.
    However, I was lukewarm on the second, it really dragged in spots for me. Too much dialogue at times and not enough action for a contemporary slasher film.
    Still, I'm interested in a third part.

    I enjoyed the first one and thought the second one was passable - helped that Danielle Harris was in it. Ill give the 3rd a shot

    Loved the first and thought the second was better than anticipated. It's just good ol' fashioned campy gory fun. Bring on Part III!!!

    I really like the first Hatchet. On first viewing, Part 2 was disappointing (I blind-bought the BD). I'll give it another shot, as well as checking out Part 3.

    Agreed, the most memorable thing about part II for me was the obscure pornstar with the perky tits in the opening montage of handheld footage.

    Loved the first one, some of the best kills in slasher history. The second film stepped up the number of kills but they didn't seem to be done as well or as creative. And even with Danielle Harris, the characters weren't as interesting as the first. Hopefully this one is more in line with the first.

    im surprised by this reaction to part II. it was due to my enjoyment of part II that i went back and re-evaluated my negative opinion of the first one. they're pretty even in my eyes.

    I'll admit it Iliked both Hatchet movies for the fun roller coaster rides that they are. Leave your brain at the door & just have fun!!!

    "What can you say about Hatchet III? When you did the first Hatchet film, did you always know you’d be doing more of them?

    GREEN: Back when we made Hatchet I, we had weapons that we showed on screen in the background because I knew it was going to be in the second film and I wanted people to be able to go back and see that we’d already set it up. We even purposely held back on the storyline for Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). In the first film, we only gave the bare minimum of information, so that you could understand the legend, as basic as possible. Kane knew what the real story was and our make-up effects people knew, but I didn’t tell anybody else. I just told them, “Trust me, in the sequel, this is what’s going to happen.” When we first screened the movie for producers, and there was this cut to black in the middle of the climax, they were like, “Did something break? What happened?” They were really worried about me ending the movie like that, but I told them that the second one would start right there and keep going. Thankfully, they went for it, but it was a huge gamble because it was an independent movie and we didn’t know if it would even get a release. Luckily, it did take off and we got to make a second one, and now a third one.

    We knew what was going to happen in this one when we made the second one. After this one, I don’t have it mapped out. I don’t want to allude to anything more than that. If you think of the three movies as one movie, in my mind and in the cast and crew’s minds, this one is the big climax. This one is much more of an action movie than the other two were, but it also does have a really great emotional arc for Marybeth (Danielle Harris) and Victor Crowley. I don’t want to spoil anything more than that. It doesn’t mean that there couldn’t be more or that there won’t be more, but as of right now, I’m not thinking about doing another one, at least not next year. Right now, I’m only looking at Hatchet III."

    i'm a little disappointed that he's not directing it, but i'm still looking forward to part III. i'd take a hatchet franchise over a saw or paranormal activity franchise any day of the week.
