About the Movie

A motley crew of tourists embark on a boat ride of the haunted Louisiana bayous where they learn the terrifying tale of local legend Victor Crowley; a horribly disfigured man who was tragically and accidentally killed with a hatchet by the hands of his own father. But when the boat sinks and the ghost story turns out to be real, the group tries desperately to escape the swamp with their lives...and all of their pieces.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Horror without suspense is like sex without love: you can appreciate the technicalities, but ultimately there's no reason to care. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Draggy stretches in the first few reels could easily have been pruned from an already tight 83-minute running time. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: High expectations and any discerning taste should be thrown out the window for a film of Hatchet's budget. That accomplished, audiences will find a gem of an intentionally bad movie. – Scott Schueller, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Green -- like John Carpenter, Wes Craven and the get-it-done directors he obviously admires -- is smart enough to ratchet up the horror in Hatchet to a level that should satisfy party-hard gore hounds and casual tourists alike. – Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press, Jun 24, 2010

A waste of money...

I'm so glad that I rented instead of buying this movie. The acting was bad and the ending was awful! Don't waste your time with this movie.

I want my money back

Are you people high? This could have been one of the biggest piece of s--- movies ever. I couldn't tell if this was a bad comedy or an even worse horror film. It really must not take much to entertain people these days because this one sucked out loud.

why isnt this in the comedy section?

this was the worst horror movie i have ever seen, total piece of s#@t. It should be put in the comedy section because it is pretty hilarious. I think this is the first "horror" movie i laughed at wen someone got killed, thats how funny it is.
