Hatchet trailer online

Hatchet.jpgAs usual anyone outside the U.S. can't see this trailer for Hatchet because the people hosting it have decided to restrict it for no good reason. However I've seen a trailer before for this film and it looks rather interesting.

Hatchet is a horror that goes back to old school American horror. A group of tourists are caught in a New Orleans haunted swamp and find that they are in the middle of a nightmare, a slasher type nightmare.

All the usual elements are here, but the trailer I saw had a slick look to it, while still feeling like that older horror film.

You can have a look at the trailer over at MTV Movie Blog [Flash:Embed], if you are in the U.S. or get it to work through a proxy. The link comes through HorrorMovies.ca who also have a copy of the full size poster that carries the tagline:

“It's not a remake. It's not a sequel. And it's not based on a Japanese one.”

I'm sold already! Someone head over, see the trailer, and then describe it to the rest of us – worth it?



Don't get me started on this film. Empty Calories and not 'old school' as advertised. More a parody of 'old school' mixed with low budget. Not scary, not particularly funny and not deserving of that tagline.

That's a shame Kurt, the trailer does make it look like it has married the old and new quite well.

I guess the tagline does suggest a certain amount of satire.
