Plot Summary

In the epic third installment of Adam Green’s slasher franchise, Marybeth (Danielle Harris, Halloween) uncovers the true secret to stopping the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of deformed maniac Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder, Friday the 13th) stalking the New Orleans bayou for decades. An entire police department, paramedic response team, and heavily armed S.W.A.T. unit face off with the iconic monster in this action-packed and explosive horror comedy. Hatchet III is full of stunts and jaw dropping gore effects that raise both the bar and the body count of the previous two films put together. Also starring genre favorites Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), and Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009 and Predators).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: When the title of a movie consists of a number and the name of a tool, expectations are likely to be pretty low. So it feels somewhat incongruous to call "Hatchet III" a disappointment. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 13, 2013

Rotten: There's something curiously underwhelming about the blood-soaked mayhem on display in Hatchet III. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jun 14, 2013

Fresh: This horror sequel delivers the explicitly bloody mayhem genre fans crave. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 14, 2013

Fresh: If you don't like sequels where the title's Roman numerals are rendered in jagged slashes of blood, this isn't for you. – Rob Staeger, Village Voice, Jun 11, 2013

Victor Crowley Lives!

Wow! This is one of my new favorite horror series because it's exacty what all slasher flicks of the 80s it needs to be: fun, gory, over the top, and overall fun! It's a gorefest all the way through and Danielle Harris is an amazing actress! Her and Jamie Lee Curtis are my favorites OF ALL TIME. While some didn't like Hatchet 2, I disagree. I thought it was good too but this one beats it by a mile. You won't be disappointed!

BEST OF THE BEST!!! More Drama with the right amount of humor.

Adam Green out did himself this time. I love one, two and three was the icing on the cake. More drama and just the right amount of humor. The characters and acting was dead on; i love that you had Derek Mears and Kane Hodder go at it. Two Jason's V. i'm so blown away by this movie i can't even put it into words.
Also, there was a scene in the movie i love ( a surprise ). Very creative. Hint. Boat

And as always a wicked ending. Adam you've proved that you can hang with the best. Chop, Chop. I know that a Hatchet 4 is on the arise. And i will be waiting.
Can't wait to buy this one.

Just when we thought it was over...

I honestly think that they should've stopped after the second Hatchet movie, being that its ending seemed to conclude everything. It's kinda ridiculous how they brought Crowley back in this one, although it's definitely interesting. I'm not saying I didn't like this installment; I've enjoyed all three movies, it's just that I don't think this one was necessary. But anyway, Hatchet III delivers all the gore and mess that we expected out of another sequel. The biggest complaint I have about this one is that we don't see as much of the swamp as we saw in the first two movies; it seemed like the characters in the swamp were confined to just a few places. I liked the other two movies because of the characters being chased THROUGHOUT the swamp, not just going back and forth between point A and point B as in this one. It's just not as fun if the characters are confined to a couple of places in the swamp. But this third installment doesn't disappoint when it comes to brutal and painful kills, so if you saw the first two movies, seeing this one is a must. And I don't doubt that there will be a fourth one; I don't know how there can be another sequel, but I said that after the second one too, so I'm sure they can find a way.
