Wish they could get out of the swamp, somehow.. the whole New Orleans setting put me off from the beginning... however, part three looks fun. I thought that aside from a few effects, (the table bite/shotgun head blow) the gore was really fake- looking. I couldn't believe the cartoon-y nature of the intestine strangulation. Anyway, an unrated cut of three, (at least we can count on the Hatchet flicks for over-the-top, uncut home video versions) would probably sweeten things.

If Crowley left the swamp, where would he go?

Well, if they make a part 4, and Crowley DO leave the swamp, maybe he could stumble upon a Summer Camp, and chop horny teens to pieces

Just donīt send him to fucking space

Send him to Florida, plenty of swamps n gators there- wouldnt be homesick. Plus this gives him a chance to ogle some bikinis and wet t-shirts.

I still haven't seen the first two films. Are they worth watching?

Yes, I would give the first one a try at the very least.

big fan of the hatchet series, really looking forward to the third, was disappointed with the second one but on repeat viewing, it's gone up in my estimation, the first is a fucking blast!!!

Both are mindless entertainment and very derivative of films that came before, but they are well done and entertaining.

Hope this is good, the first film was awesome but II was awful, it was filmed like a TV movie and it seemed abit too serious for my liking compared to I. Not to me toon the characters in I were far more interesting. So hope III picks it back up.

Does anyone know why Tamara Feldman didn't come back for the sequel?

I didn't care for the first one. The backstory is so formulaic that for all intents and purposes, it might as well have been a remake. Now, that doesn't really bother me (though I could have done without the "IT'S NOT A REMAKE, IT'S NOT A SEQUEL, AND IT'S NOT BASED ON A JAPANESE ONE!" garbage selling point). My real issue with this one is that it just tries too hard - the performances are overwrought (save for the heroine), and the movie itself is just a loud mess. Don't get me wrong, I love deformed slashers as much as the next guy, but I wouldn't mind if the buried the Hatchet franchise.

The first two are entertaining but empty. I remember enjoying them, but I don't remember much about them.

Just finished it. Probably the best of the 3 so far. Plenty of over the top kills, a bit more humor thrown in this time too. A nice small, but entertaining role from Sid Haig too. The story flows well and has a surprisingly good ending. Plus Danielle Harris keeps the eyebrow under control too, which is good as it annoyed the crap out of me in Hatchet 2. Worth a watch, you wont be disappointed.

The original will always be my favorite but this is a close second.

Great cast (Harris was better here and I loved Caroline Williams and Zach Galligan), great gory kills and a satisfying closure to the series.

The movie looks much bigger in scope compared to 1 & 2 and it's more action packed.

I liked the first Hatchet and never really gained an interest to see the secend entry but a few months ago I've checked out the trailer for this one and it doesn't look half bad. It looks like the unmade Friday the 13th sequel the fans have wet dreams over.
I'm surprised that some of the stuff presented in this film wasn't in a Friday the 13th film.

Maybe he'll "Take Manhattan"

I was disappointed with Part 2. It was a chore to sit through.
